Well it’s that time of year again and everyone is offering help. For those who are serious about giving up, for whatever reason, and have not found any of the options available over the counter or through the NHS effective, then Hypnotherapy is probable seen as a last resort.
This should not be happening. Hypnotherapy is often found to be quicker, more effective and longer lasting than most other options.
In the past the advice was; that because Hypnotherapy was not regulated hypnotherapists were not to be trusted, as most were charlatans. But that is no longer true. There is regulation and it is approved by the Department of Health, who funded its development.
The Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council is now the Regulator for 15 Complementary Healthcare Practices. They are an effective body that ensures registrants adhere to Nationally agreed and approved standards.
So if you are looking for a Hypnotherapist or other Complementary Practitioner – look for their mark or check their register at www.cnhc.org.uk .
