The Advertising Standards Authority has published some guidance on how Hypnotherapists can advertise their practice: https://www.asa.org.uk/advice-...
When looking for a therapist, be aware of the claims they are making about their practice, and - if in doubt - refer to the ASA or contact us as the National Hypnotherapy Society for guidance.
