Client Bill of Rights

Contact Information

My name is Harley Sears. I can be contacted by telephone at (913) 999-5819 or by email at hypnosis@harleysears.com.

Education & Training

I graduated with a Diploma in Hypnotherapy from HMI College of Hypnotherapy in Southern California, including an internship of practical experience under the supervision of staff instructors holding teaching credentials from the State Department of Education. Additionally, I earned a Certificate in Wellness Counseling from Cornell University and a Specialization in Integrative Health and Medicine from the University of Minnesota.


As the State of Kansas has not adopted educational and training standards for the practice of hypnotism, this statement of credentials is for informational purposes only. Hypnotism is a self-regulating profession and its practitioners are not licensed by state governments. I am not a physician nor a licensed health care provider and may not provide a medical diagnosis nor recommend discontinuance of medically prescribed treatments. If you desire a diagnosis or any other type of treatment from a different practitioner, you may seek such services at any time. You have the right to refuse hypnotism services at any time. You have a right to be free of physical, verbal, or sexual abuse. You have a right to know the expected duration of sessions and may assert any right without retaliation.

Permits & Licenses

Hypnotherapy with Harley Sears is licensed by the City of Leawood. Any person engaging in a business, trade, or profession that provides any service within Leawood city limits is required by City Ordinance to obtain an Occupation License.

Fees & Cancellations

My fee for a one-hour session is $150. If you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, please provide at least 24-hour notice to avoid being charged the full session fee. In the event of a no-show (missing an appointment without notice), you will be billed the full session fee of $150. I understand that unexpected circumstances may arise, and I am willing to make exceptions to this policy on a case-by-case basis. Please note that this policy is in place to ensure that I can effectively manage my schedule and provide the best possible care to all of my clients. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to discuss them with me.

Insurance Not Accepted

I suggest you think of my services as something that you will pay for personally. That will both protect your privacy and help you value the work you are doing more. In general, insurance companies do not cover hypnotic services, and I caution you not to expect them to do so.

Your Privacy

You have the right to expect that anything you tell me will be held in confidence. I will not release any information to anyone without written authorization from you. It is my policy to refuse disclosure of all privileged information.

My Approach

The services I render are held out to the public as non-therapeutic hypnotism, defined as the use of hypnosis to inculcate positive thinking and the capacity for self-hypnosis. The self-hypnotic state is a state of relaxed concentration that anyone can enter naturally. I provide clients with instructions on how to enter this natural state more easily and effectively. I do not represent my services as a form of health care or psychotherapy, and despite research to the contrary, by law, I make no health benefit claims for my services.
