Hypnotherapy in the news

The Royal Society of Medicine (RSM) is calling for hypnosis to be taken out of the hands of ‘cowboys' and put into the hands of properly trained medically qualified practitioners.

The RSM acknowledges that hypnosis is an extremely useful tool that can be used alongside mainstream medicine. It warns that the public should be protected from inadequately qualified practitioners.

CNHC Hypnotherapy Profession Specific Board (PSB) member John Lawrence said: "We agree with the RSM that 'cowboys' should not be used. This means those who are unqualified and not fit for practise because the public should be protected from inadequately qualified practitioners. Fortunately, all CNHC registered hypnotherapists abide by a strict ethical code and a number of hypnotherapists are fellows of the RSM. Robust regulation for hypnotherapists already exists in the CNHC and I am sure the medical profession will continue to refer to CNHC registered practitioners.

"The only way to get rid of ‘back street' therapists is by ensuring they have a credible ‘shop front' through registration with CNHC."
