The founding members of the UK Hypnotherapy Council (UKHC) are all practising hypnotherapists who are fully immersed in this exciting and ever developing field. They built the foundations of the UKHC on a number of core principles; creating a professional community, accessibility to the best quality resources and education for its members, to educate the public correctly and effectively, to see the field of hypnotherapy flourish and develop with focus, and to have a membership that adheres to a set of high standards and who care deeply about the representation of the field.
The UKHC is an independent organisation that recognises and welcomes new members from a number of accredited training organisations and a range of therapeutic approaches.
The vision of the UKHC though far-reaching, is succinctly summed up with the following mission statement:
- The UKHC is dedicated to ensuring its members adhere to a strict code of ethics and professionalism in order to maintain high standards that represent the field of hypnotherapy accurately and positively.
- The UKHC publishes and encourages innovation and ongoing quality research within the field of clinical hypnotherapy to help our members access the most effective, evidence-based approaches and to correctly educate the public via the dissemination of that information.
- The UKHC encourages and supports the highest quality and standards of training in clinical hypnotherapy.
- The UKHC offers its members an ongoing supportive community dedicated to developing their knowledge and nurturing their talent in the field of clinical hypnotherapy.
