In 2011, ALL national hypnotherapy organisations came to an agreement and finally put in place national standards for the training of hypnotherapists. Whilst flexibility in theoretical underpinning and approach has been retained, a core curriculum and learning outcomes has been mapped to the National Occupational Standards (NOS) for Hypnotherapy. This must now be incorporated within any course of training that wishes to ensure its graduates will meet the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (the profession’s regulator) criteria for individual practitioner registration beyond 1st September 2012.
