Legal, Ethical, and Privacy Disclaimers

Thank you for your interest in our services. Please read the following page in it’s entirety. Here are some guidelines for any testimonial or claim we make on our website.

    • Individual results can vary from person to person. The results featured in testimonials and elsewhere on this site, are the individual experiences and personal opinions of those who have purchased and followed our programs. Our minds are all individual, and you may not achieve the same results as those featured in testimonials. In order to achieve the best result, you will need to follow instructions given, and be willing to enter into a hypnotic state.
    • Not everyone is suited for my programs. If you have ever wondered how well you would be able to be hypnotized, you should know that most normal people can be hypnotized. However, there are certain qualifications that I will screen you for when I talk to you, that will determine whether I can accept you as a client. The best way to find out is to schedule a free consultation.
    • I work with normal, every day people, with normal, every day problems.
    • Hypnosis can not “make” you lose weight or “make” you stop smoking if you don’t really want to. Most people I work with will show a reduction in weight, however that amount will depend on your body type and composition, previous history with weight loss, dietary needs, mental and emotional state, and other factors. I strive to have the best success that I can have with every client.
    • I do not guarantee results or that you will make a change. As hypnosis involves a human factor, it would be unethical and unprofessional to guarantee any sort of on-going or long-term success. Each person experiences hypnosis in their own unique way which makes each case and session unique. Our service is no different than doctors, lawyers, coaches and other professionals that can’t guarantee results. The clients I have worked with so far have reported very powerful changes and we strive for that with each and every client.
    • I practice in accordance with the National Guild of Hypnotists’ Code of Ethics. Every client is provided with a Client Bill of Rights when coming to my offices, and I train my students to do the same.
    • My contact information is: Taylor Sherman, 4905 Del Ray Avenue, Suite #403, Bethesda, MD 20814. You may leave a voicemail at 703-779-9616.
    • NOTICE: AS THE STATE OF MARYLAND HAS NOT ADOPTED ANY EDUCATIONAL AND TRAINING STANDARDS FOR THE PRACTICE OF HYPNOTISM, THE CREDENTIALS LISTED ON OUR WEBSITE ARE FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY. Hypnotism is a self-regulating profession and its practitioners are not licensed by state governments. I am neither a physician nor a licensed health care provider and may not provide a medical diagnosis or recommend discontinuance of medically prescribed treatments. If a client desires a diagnosis or any other type of treatment from a different practitioner, the client may seek such services at any time. In the event my services are terminated by a client, the client has a right to coordinated transfer of services to another practitioner. A client has a right to refuse hypnosis services at any time. A client has a right to be free of physical, verbal or sexual abuse. A client has a right to know the expected duration of the work being done, and may assert any right without retaliation. The services we/I render are held out to the public as nontherapeutic hypnotism, defined as the use of hypnosis to inculcate positive thinking and the capacity for self-hypnosis. We/I do not represent our services as any form of health care or psychotherapy, and despite research to the contrary, by law we/I may make no health benefit claims for our services.


    • As part of my practice, I do not diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease or illness. Some of the issues listed on this website may require a referral or supervision from a licensed professional, such as a medical doctor or psychotherapist, before I will start to work with you. I do not independently work on mental diseases or illnesses, and if conditions meet diagnostic criteria they would require me to receive a referral to work under the supervision of a medical or mental health provider. Hypnosis has not been shown to be a cure of diseases or illnesses, however research has provided that hypnosis does have mind/body benefits and that many of the problems people encounter are able to be helped, and in some cases by a lot, with hypnosis. I provide services that are complementary to, not a replacement of, that of medical and mental health providers. Always consult a doctor or other appropriate professional before seeking hypnotism services for a symptom, disease, or illness. I may hold off using hypnotism with you until your doctor or mental health professional has indicated that they see no contraindications to the use of hypnosis.

They are individual experiences, reflecting real life experiences of those who have used our products and/or services in some way or another. However, they are individual results and results do vary. We do not claim that they are typical results that consumers will generally achieve. Your own level of results will depend on many factors including your willingness and ability to enter into the hypnotic state. The testimonials are not necessarily representative of all of those who will use our products and/or services, however since we were given the testimonial they are, certainly, representative of some who use our products and/or services.
