from the "Farmington Observer" January 24, 1980
In a recent and indirectly related posting about avoiding charlatans in the field of hypnotism Gundella suggested that you should only trust a trained professional in the psychiatric and psychologist fields and here she reiterates that point. Furthermore she explains that at the time you could become a registered hypnotist by simply paying a registry fee! No wonder people called them charlatans. My guess is that the field is a bit more sophisticated now and that you have to "earn" a license via testing and certification but I could be wrong.
As for the confidential note to Joan K.: I never imagined that there was such a thing as an alcoholic spell! I'm sure it's not specifically geared to alcoholism but rather self-help and coping mechanisms. Again, I could be quite wrong.
