NLP disclosure form from Pati McDermott
Summary: A disclosure form intended to comply with California's 2002 alternative health care law, which provides legal protection for practitioners of alternative health care.
This disclosure form is adapted from one by Tim Hallbom of the NLP Institute of California. Pati says, "I welcome feedback on any improvements anyone has to suggest."
I, Pati McDermott, am a Certified NLP Master Practitioner, a Certified NLP Health Practitioner and a Certified Hypnotherapist. I am also an NLP teacher and consultant. I am not a California licensed mental health practitioner or physician and I do not provide psychotherapy or any other form of mental health service which would require a California state license, nor do I hold myself out to provide such services. I do not provide diagnosis or treatment of physical or mental conditions nor am I licensed by the state as a healing arts practitioner. NLP is considered a complimentary healing arts service that is not licensed by the state. For individuals or small groups I provide individualized teaching and coaching designed to help people learn how to commit to and achieve their performance goals, and remove any barriers they have to success.
