Restrictive hypnosis laws in Indiana repealed effective July 1, 2010

After a study of the results of Indiana's regulatory board created in 1997, the state legislature recently passed a new law the repeals the 1997 restrictions on using hypnosis, NLP, and guided imagery.

Watch this video of Bruce Bonnet, the President of the Hypnotherapists' Union Local 472 announcing the news.

Mr. Bonnet points out that while this Indiana law change doesn't directly affect hypnotherapists in other states, it sets a good example for other states considering restrictive licensing of hypnotherapy.

AAPH encourages professional hypnotherapists to join the union if they can; Local 472 continues to be an excellent source of legal information and support for the industry as well as the most powerful arm of lobbying for support of our profession.
