*Consumer Comment: Incorrect impression left with the above complaint
Now is your chance to defend yourself. It is strange that you are not dealing with the points on your education Why is this? This is a chance to verify your
training that you have gone through . On your website you claim to be the following:
"..I'm Bunny Vreeland PhD, a Board Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist. My
Ventura County hypnotherapy practice has helped people stop smoking with hypnosis, lose weight with hypnosis, and reduce stress. Whether you are considering hypnosis for weight loss, hypnosis to stop smoking, or hypnosis to reduce stress, I can help. The name of my business is Image Resource Center.
The concrn that should be on all the mids of the people you have been working with is that most of your degree and certifications are given out to anyone that will pay the money and give little time to become properly educated. Many of the exact degrees and certifications on yor website appear in a story :
How to Find a Qualified Hypnotherapist
Steve K. D. Eichel, Ph.D., ABPP
So, after everyone copies the link and pastes it in the address barr, then read the story it will bring up many more questions
"..Most people are familiar with sales hype, and generally know the old saying that if it sounds too good to be truethen it probably isn't. That adage certainly applies to hypnosis as well. Hypnosis tapes (and practitioners!) claiming instant or super-fast results are probably misleading you. There are hypnosis tapes/CDs publishers run by outright hucksters. As a general rule, if the website seems to violate common sense, then have the sense to move on. It is also prudent to avoid tapes, CDs (and their promoters) who claim to be able to cure long-term problems, like alcoholism or chronic depression. If these tapes and CDs wind up delaying or preventing someone from obtaining real help, then they have not only failed to "cure," they may have caused actual harm..."
The below link states
"There is no accredited university or college in the United States that offers a degree in hypnosis or hypnotherapy (but there are in the U.K.). Certification by an organization such as the National Guild of Hypnotists can indicate some level of legitimacy and training, but consumers still need to exercise caution.
Unfortunately, it's easy for anyone to purchase a doctorate from diploma mills. When consulting a hypnotist or hypnotherapist outside of your normal health-care plan who presents themselves as a "Dr.", you may want to ask them if they are licensed to practice medicine or therapy by the state. There are legitimate licensed medical, psychological and counseling professionals who use hypnosis as part of their therapeutic practice.
In the end This is not a way ruin your good reputations for if it is built on rock of truth you have nothing to fear. However, if the things are true that you ar accused you deserve legal action taken aginst you. because this would mean for 25 years and am in very misled and stole from those in yourcommunity.
