For therapists to use our “QCHPA Registered’ badge, they must agree to follow these standards:
- They must have passed the Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD). This is the only externally validated Hypnotherapy qualification in the UK and conforms to the National Occupational Standards for Hypnotherapy. It was established by the NCH (National Council for Hypnotherapy) as a benchmark for training quality that the public could have confidence in, and to separate holders of it from the many Hypnotherapists who have only had a minimal amount of training.
- They must be members of the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) or NCH and comply with their code of ethics and public protection policy. The CNHC was set up with government support to protect the public by providing a UK voluntary register of complementary therapists. CNHC’s register has been approved as an Accredited Register by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care.
- They must practice what we teach – Quest Cognitive Hypnotherapy. We think this is the most advanced use of hypnotherapy available and we expect the public to get the benefits they would expect from our claims.
- What they won’t do is offer guarantees, promise 95% success rates or impose their ideas on you. This is the real world. We want you to come to see a Quest Cognitive Hypnotherapist because you can trust that they’re as good as you can find. We don’t think slick marketing is the way to win that trust.
Some of our graduates also go on to specialise in particular uses of Cognitive Hypnotherapy. You can click on the icons below to find more information about them.
