Hypnotherapy Training UK – Psychotherapy Training UK

Is it for me? Question 4a

Both hypnotherapy and psychotherapy have gained accredited voluntary regulator status through the Professional Standards Authority (the same body that regulates doctors, dentists etc.). This means that if you train with us to certificate level you can register as a hypnotherapist with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council and if you then continue to advanced diploma level you can register as a psychotherapist with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy.

There are just three schools in the UK that give the latter option (UKCP) with the hypno-psychotherapy modality. This means that you will be able to work with more complex issues than a hypnotherapist and adds significantly to your credibility in the marketplace.

Hypnotherapy training (under the CNHC) is at level 4 NVQ equivalence and Psychotherapy training (under UKCP) is at level 7.




the Exit button will take you to our sister site which is at the level 4 NVQ equivalence but does not qualify you to be a psychotherapist
