Hypnotherapists endorsed by the British Society of Clinical and Academic Hypnosis
I am often contacted by people, both individuals and organisations throughout the UK asking me where they can source medically-credible hypnotherapists.
Sometimes these are individuals seeking therapy for themselves, sometimes they are doctors seeking support for they patients, and sometimes these are hospital departments desperately trying to access hypnotherapy advice or services to use within their own service.
For example, I was contacted only recently by Consultants at Great Ormond Street Hospital, seeking support for a hypnotherapy venture they are trying to get off the ground with the potential to impact on how sick children are supported throughout the UK.
Depending on the situation and persons needs, there are a few avenues that can be explored that I recommend.
A good resource for medically-credible Hypnotherapists in the UK is the list of recommended therapists 'Referral List' online at the website of the British Society of Clinical and Academic Hypnosis. This is a list of health professionals (doctors, dentists, psychologists, nurses and UKCP registered Psychotherapists) all of whom are validated and recommended in the use of clinical hypnosis. I will say that I am very honoured to be one of only 25 health professionals on this list in the UK and its a tremendous privilege to be so.
If you are looking for a medically credible Hypnotherapist, this referral list is an excellent place to start. You will notice, however, how few and far between in the UK Medical Hypnotherapists who have medical credibility actually are.
You will find the Referrals List on the British Society of Clinical and Academic Hypnosis website here.
You will also find clear information regarding who to trust with your hypnotherapy treatment, in a world where there is no legal regulation of hypnotherapy and anyone without health proefessional background can offer services.
