Code of Ethics

As a Certified Member of the National Guild of Hypnotists, Sean Wheeler practices in accordance with its Code of Ethics and Standards. If you ever have a complaint about his services or behavior that he cannot resolve for you personally, you may contact the National Guild of Hypnotists at P.O. Box 308, Merrimack, NH 03054-0308, (603) 429-9438, to seek redress.

Our Approach

Sean believes that people have the ability to make changes on their own.  Because he believes that you know yourself better than he will ever know you, his role is to serve as a guide, opening new doors and introducing you to new possibilities and perspectives.  Your responsibility is to take those opportunities, make choices for yourself and take action.

Sean’s greatest influence has been Milton H. Erickson, M.D., who likewise believed in the ability of his patients to learn and make changes with the proper guidance and assistance.  This approach is the most respectful of you as the individual (client/patient), since the therapist does not presume to know more about what is in your best interest than you yourself know.
