I took a brave step this Autumn and returned to University to study Clinical Hypnotherapy at St Mary’s University, Twickenham. This degree course is the first formally recognised qualification in hypnotherapy and I’m sure in time it will become the bench mark for the profession.
Hypnosis has, until now, had courses run by a variety of hypnotherapy schools, the best of which are approved by associations such as the GHR. GHR and other similar associations, have strict regulations for their members, which covers their basic training standards and ongoing professional courses and awareness.
Whilst there are many wonderful therapists out there, hypnosis still suffers from this lack of regulation and this leads to the therapy often not being recognised by other health professionals, for its scientifically proven success in treating many neurosis.
This university degree is a huge step forward in recognition of Hypnosis, and it is my sincere hope that in time you will be able to receive treatment through the NHS. I am proud to be one of the first people who will receive a degree in the subject and I am looking forward to wearing that gown again!
