In the field of hypnosis the subject of accreditation is a somewhat controversial topic. Being an unregulated industry there are no unbiased central governing bodies which have stringent processes for membership. For example, Psychologists have the British Psychological Society and Counsellors/Psychotherapists have the UK Council for Psychotherapy and British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
There are many awarding bodies and to the untrained eye there does appear to be official bodies of membership, however, many of these bodies are set up by the same people that run their training courses and so are totally biased to their own courses. Due to this we do not offer any accreditation as our courses are short and offered to the trained therapist rather than those new to the profession seeking accreditation.
We do offer Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points and these can be used to count towards your yearly total by your relevant body / association.
We do not recommend any particular professional body as between the team we have spent thousands on memberships and received very little in return. In all of our years as practicing therapists our clients have never once asked what body/organisation/association we are attached to. However, if you wish to pursue a career or voluntary work in organisations such as the NHS then it will be useful to show that you are a member of such a body
