Top Tips on choosing a therapist
Here are our top tips that you should look for when choosing a reputable hypnotherapist.
1) Are they suitably qualified?
Did you know you can spend a couple of hundred pounds, ‘study’ for a few hours and some unreputable places will give you a certificate saying you are a qualified hypnotherapist. This needs stopping and the public need to know that the person they are putting their trust in can really help. My training is done at masters level, and is probably the most complete and thorough training on offer.
2) Do they partake in CPD?
I have to undertake regular CPD (continued professional development) as part of my membership of the organisations listed on this page. This is for the publics benefit, so that you – the client, can be sure of receiving treatment that is completely up to date as far as quality and ethics go.
3) Are they members of the CNHC?
The department of health recommend that when choosing a complementary therapist, you choose one that is a member of the CNHC. – complementary and natural healthcare council. To be a member of the CNHC you have to be trained to an adequate level, you have to provide copies of your insurance policy but mostly, the CNHC is there to check a therapist out for you.
4) Are they CRB checked?
I have a current CRB (criminal records bureau) certificate which is clear, and enables me to work with younger people.
5) Are they properly registered/insured?
I belong to the NCH (National Council for Hypnotherapy ) and the CNHC, which gives you, more assurance as to my credentials.
6) Does it seem too good to be true?
Some therapists seem to offer treatment/prices that are seemingly extremely cheap – my advice is, if it seems too good to be true it probably is.
7) Are they working towards full government legislation to ensure ALL hypnotherapists are adequately trained and registered?
I tick all the above boxes, and you should always check that you are seeing a registered, qualified professional with excellent ethics, and who puts your needs well above their own.
