Frequently Asked Questions
How do I become a hypnotherapist?
You can become a hypnotherapist through online, distance or classroom training. You do not need proof of training, but you will not be able to join some of the self-regulating bodies, such as the GHSC (General Hypnotherapy Standards Council) or the CNHC (Complimentary and Natural Healthcare Council) these are two of the largest self-regulating bodies.
Can I set up practice as a hypnotherapist after completing online training?
Absolutely. Our online Certification courses provide you all the training and knowledge you need to set up practice.
What do I need to practice hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is self-regulated. You do not need to attend or undertake any course to practice hypnotherapy. However, the legal requirement in the U.K. is that you must purchase liability insurance. If you are setting up practice in other country you will need to find out which laws would apply to you.
