OKLAHOMA CITY, OK -- A licensed social worker, Stephen Kristic, has been charged with 11 counts of sexual battery after performing hypnosis on his clients.

Four female clients claim Stephen Kristic assaulted them while they were hypnotized.

Kristic owns and operates the Oklahoma Psychological Center and performs hypnotherapy to help people quit smoking or lose weight.

The women say during their sessions with Kristic, he placed his hands up their shirts or down their pants.

Other hypnotists say they are outraged by the incident and warn that any touching, other than on the arm or wrist, during a session is a red flag.

"If you are a female and you want this to not happen -- never go by yourself, ever," said Patrick Coleman, Clinical Hypnotherapist

Kristic continues to see clients and is still licensed as a social worker by the Oklahoma State Board of Licensed Social Workers.
