The British Society of Clinical Hypnosis (BSCH) is a national professional body whose aim is to promote and assure high standards in the practice of hypnotherapy. Registration demands good quality training, ethical practice and adherence to our code of conduct. You can choose a therapist with confidence.


A hypnotic state occurs normally in everyone when certain physiological and psychological conditions are met and with the assistance of a skilled hypnotherapist it's possible to use this state to make changes to thoughts, feelings and behaviour. Our promise is to ensure you receive the best possible treatment from hypnotherapists armed with the latest techniques in modern hypnotherapy. To receive an email with more information about hypnotherapy click-here and send a blank e-mail.

Hypnotherapy is a valuable therapy with which to release past trauma and decondition established habits. Even though our personal unconscious only ever seeks to promote our well being it can often be the seat of faulty learning from our past, leading to low self esteem, under achievement and sometimes worse. Often it attempts to protect us by raising our fears and anxieties to phobic levels to keep us from a particular activity or stimulus it sees as dangerous. Sometimes these non-optimum patterns can lead to addictive behaviour. Using hypnosis in therapy can facilitate a holistic relearning process.


CNHC is the UK voluntary regulator for complementary healthcare practitioners that was set up with government support to protect the public by providing a UK voluntary register of complementary therapists. CNHC's register has been approved as an Accredited Register by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care. This means CNHC has met the Professional Standards Authority’s demanding standards. The public and those who commission the services of complementary healthcare practitioners can choose with confidence, by looking for the CNHC quality mark.
CNHC has agreed that the BSCH may verify applications for CNHC registration. Members wishing to register should complete the CNHC application form and forward it to the secretary.
