THE NATIONAL SOCIETY REGISTER OF PSYCHOTHERAPISTS
The National Society believes that, properly taught, hypnosis is a powerful and effective tool in psychotherapy – so all members of the National Society Register Of Psychotherapists are trained in the use of hypnosis in the clinical context.
For this reason, you will often see those registered here referred to as Hypno-psychotherapists and, less often, as Hypnosis-led Psychotherapists. Whichever title you see, you will know that they are psychotherapists who have the additional training to be able to provide hypnosis when it is required.
(Registration Code 02) Registered Hypno-Psychotherapist
Registration is available to those who have successfully completed the Diploma (Part 3) of the Hypno-psychotherapy course at The National College of Hypnosis and Psychotherapy (NCHP)
(Registration 03) UKCP Accredited Clinical Psychotherapist (Hypno-Psychotherapist/Mindfulness Based Psychotherapist
Widely considered the most prestigious registration available to talking therapists in the EU. Many National Colleges’ Initiative courses [Link to www.thenationalcolleges.org/courses] can be counted towards this – which means that The National Colleges provide the only method of becoming a UKCP Registered Psychotherapist whilst training to teach or work with mindfulness and hypnosis. With this Registration, you are listed both with The National Society and with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (the UKCP)
There is no obligation to continue your studies, but if you do so, after joining this Register you could also be included on:
THE NATIONAL SOCIETY REGISTER OF MINDFULNESS TEACHERS & FACILITATORS
THE NATIONAL SOCIETY REGISTER OF MINDFULNESS-LED THERAPISTS & MENTORS
Becoming a National Society Registered Psychotherapist (Registration 02) is a step towards becoming a UKCP Registered Clinical Psychotherapist (Registration 04)
What is the difference between a National Society Registered Hypnotherapist and a National Society Registered Psychotherapist?
A National Society Registered Hypnotherapist is trained in the use of hypnosis in a clinical setting, and in talking-therapy that relates to supporting people who have difficulties or challenges through hypnosis. They are useful in working with conditions that are improved by hypnosis – usually a behaviour change.
A National Society Registered Psychotherapist has additional training in a wider set of skills and will work with some clients without hypnosis if that will result in a quicker, better resolution.
