IS ROY HUNTER ?
BACKGROUND OF AUTHOR:
My name is Roy Hunter, and I have been teaching a nine-month professional
hypnotherapy course in a college since 1987. It is based on the teachings
of my mentor, the late Charles Tebbetts, who believed in a self-empowerment
approach. Additionally, my mentor felt that most texts were too dry because
of authors trying to write in an academic style; so I'll write my answers
in these FAQ's with the same simple language and first-person style that
my books are written.
Please understand that my responses
to the questions are based on experience rather than on scientific research
(12+ years full-time hypnotherapy and 8+ years teaching); but many successful
sessions over a period of years validate my opinions as workable. Others may
have differing opinions to the same questions presented here, which might
also be valid from their viewpoints (there is MORE THAN ONE WAY to effectively
help a client!). I consider myself an artist rather than a scientist,
and I teach hypnotherapy as an art.
My national honors in the profession
include: 1990 Voice of the Year (International Hypnosis Hall of Fame),
1991 Outstanding Service Award (National Guild of Hypnotists), 1993 Dedication
Award (Hypnosis Hall of Fame), and 1995 Outstanding Service Award (International
Hypnosis Hall of Fame). Additionally, I'm the published author of three
books: SUCCESS THROUGH MIND POWER (1987, Westwood Publishing), THE ART
OF HYPNOSIS (1994, National Guild of Hypnotists), and THE ART OF HYPNOTHERAPY
(1995, Kendall/Hunt Publishing). The revised version of my first book
has been re-titled and is available in electronic format.

more about who I am, perhaps you will enjoy reading my responses in this
