Our Credentials

We are members of the Association of Solution Focused Hypnotherapists (AfSFH)

The main aim of the AfSFH is to spread awareness of the benefits of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy. Its secondary aim is to support Hypnotherapists in their businesses by encouraging good practice and self-care as well as providing marketing support. Through our journal, Hypnotherapy Today, and social media, we keep therapists up-to-date with relevant research and scientific advancements.

CNHC – The Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council

We are proud to be a registered member of the CNHC who’s key purpose is to act in the public interest and enable proper public accountability of the complementary therapists that it registers. CNHC acts in the public interest by:

  • keeping a register of practitioners who meet national standards of practice in their work
  • setting the standards that practitioners need to meet to get onto and then stay on the register
  • requiring CNHC registered practitioners to keep to our strict Code of Conduct, Ethics and Performance
  • investigating complaints about alleged breaches of the Code
  • imposing disciplinary sanctions that mirror those of the statutory healthcare regulators
