I have been trained to the highest gold standards. All of my training has been externally accredited by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council, GHSC and the National Hypnotherapy Society, and has required personal attendance. I am also a member of www.hypnotherapistregister.com which is the largest register of hypnotherapy practitioners in the UK. None of my training has been via distance learning. My learning has required 350 hours of study and 150 hours of clinical supervision.
There are at present, no laws governing the practice of hypnotherapy, so it is important to check that the therapist you choose is a member of a reputable body. The government set up the CNHC (Complimentary and Natural Healthcare Council) in 2008 which requires all hypnotherapists to meet rigorous training standards before they will be approved. The purpose of the CNHC is to protect the public, so please be vigilant when choosing your therapist and look for professional training standards. It is important when looking for a hypnotherapist to ensure they have completed GHSC accredited training. This way you can be certain to receive the highest standards of therapy at all times.
