Advantages of Membership

The Hypnotherapy Association was formed in November 1997 as a non-profit making organisation aimed at representing all professional hypnotherapists in practice. We are unique in that we are completely independent of all training organisations or school registers.

When you join us, you will find both professional support and academic fulfilment in our Regional Meetings, Workshops and our in-house journal “The Hypnotherapist”, as well as financial benefit through our online UK Register, the client Referrals Service, the Corporate adverts in Yellow Pages,and articles in newspapers and magazines.

The Hypnotherapy Association website receives many thousands of visitors each month, whether or not you have a web presence of your own, you will benefit from this exposure because the details of your name, telephone number, and if you have them, your email address and website, will be entered onto the database. The website is updated on a daily basis.

The Association holds a weekend Conference each year with a variety of speakers. All members are invited to attend.

In all you should find it a very profitable experience, which will broaden your perspective, increase your knowledge and enable you to meet new friends and colleagues.
