The National Register of Hypnotherapists & Psychotherapists

Training & Supervision

Training for Hypnotherapists

At present, anybody can set up in practice as a hypnotherapist, without undergoing any formal training. One way to ensure that your therapist has been properly trained is to confirm that they are a member of the National Register of Hypnotherapists and Psychotherapists (NRHP).

Training for NRHP members

All regulated Members of the NRHP have trained to UKCP Hypno-Psychotherapy Section training requirements. This ensures a thorough training in hypno-psychotherapy, with comprehensive coverage of hypnotherapeutic techniques integrated with a variety of psychotherapeutic approaches. All members have undergone training externally accredited by organisations such as UKCP or the British Accreditation Council for Independent Further and Higher Education (BAC)

Continuing Professional Development

Members are required to give attention to their ongoing development as therapists and to this end take part in a range of activities that support and encourage further knowledge, expertise and progression. CPD may include activities such as attendance at conferences, short training courses and personal therapy.

Supervision for NRHP members

All practising members of NRHP are required to undertake regular Supervision with another therapist. This means that the Supervisee and Supervisor meet at regular intervals to discuss matters that may arise during the Supervisee's work with clients. A range of issues may be discussed in relation to the Supervisee's client work but everything is treated as confidential and the anonymity of clients is preserved. Supervision ensures that high standards of ethical practice are maintained by therapists.

United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy

The UKCP is a registered charity which aims to create a well regulated, broadly based psychotherapy profession. UKCP expects its Member Organisations to adhere to and apply guidelines for standards of training and ethical practice intended for the protection of the public. As a leading national register of Hypnotherapists and Psychotherapists, the NRHP is a member of the Hypno-Psychotherapy Section of the UKCP.

NRHP members are strictly regulated in respect of:

· Qualifications (and their disclosure on request)
· Terms, conditions and methods of treatment
· Client confidentiality
· Professional relationships
· Research and publications
· Practitioner competence
· Personal and professional behaviour
· Post-qualification supervision

All NRHP therapists carry professional indemnity insurance.
