The therapies and teachings that David Wynn at  Q.S.A. offer are ‘complementary therapies’ and no suggestion is made that the service provided is, ‘instead of’, or ‘superior ‘ , to any medical treatment that any client is being treated for by their GP or NHS / private, Health Care Professional.

The Therapy/Teaching offered, are recommended as purely complementary and supportive to assist with the management of any presenting issue that a person may have and also complementary and supportive where they may be under the care of their Doctor or other health care professional.

If a potential client believes they have a presenting issue that may be medical in nature, either physical or mental health related, in the first instance before commencing any consultation you will be asked if you have consulted with your Doctor or other Health care Professional. Depending upon the circumstance, it may be recommended you see your Doctor or health professional first.

In the case of potential clients who are already prescribed a course of medication by their Doctor/ Health Care Professional, you will be advised to continue with your medication and only make alterations upon express consent with your Doctor/Health Care Professional. David Wynn/Q.S.A.  does not make a medical diagnosis, neither does he advise on medication. You will always be referred to your Doctor/Health Care Professional.

In almost all circumstances where clients consult with David Wynn/Q.S.A., Permissions will be asked to communicate with your Doctor in order that your medical records can be kept up to date.

You are entitled to opt out, however, if in the case of a refusal for permissions to contact your GP where it is clearly in the best interests of client safety, with certain presenting issues, such as depression, anxiety etc, David Wynn/Q.S.A.  will be under no obligation to offer Therapy/Teaching.

It should be noted that the Therapy/Teaching offered do not in any way imply or make claims of a ‘cure’ or to treat health or medical conditions but may be able to help a client to feel better in themselves and manage their presenting issue better as has been the case for numerous clients on David Wynn Q.S.A. Testimonial page.

The Quit Smoking Academy is not a substitute for medical treatment. We do not diagnose any diseases or administer any medication. Everyone reacts differently to hypnosis, results can therefore vary. If you are currently being treated medically, you should not stop treatment without consulting your doctor beforehand.
