Training, qualifications & experience

DipCAH - Jackie studied for the Diploma in Clinical and Advanced Hypnotherapy with the UK Academy of Therapeutic Arts and Sciences through the Delwyn School of Hypnotherapy in North Wales. The ethos of this training academy, is to ensure that  the training of those in the profession is of the highest standards and that the needs of the client are paramount.

HPD - the Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma was awarded to Jackie by the National Council for Hypnotherapy and the government appointed national awarding body NCFE. This is the first externally verified hypnotherapy qualification and its learning outcomes are in line with the National Occupational Standards for Hypnotherapy.

NGA - as a member of the National Guild of Hypnotists Jackie is committed to abiding by its codes of conduct and ethics. The NGA is an international organisation founded in 1951 currently representing practitioners to the highest levels in our field, all over the world. It is a privilege to be a member of such an organisation which is committed to ensuring the highest possible professional standards amongst their members. This requires all practitioners to attend regular supervision sessions with a senior clinician and to make a commitment to a minimum number of hours of continued professional development each year to ensure services to you of the highest standard.

The Guild obliges all members to maintain comprehensive Public Liability and Professional Indemnity Insurance and maintains a Common Code of Ethics and Practice and a Complaints and Disciplinary Procedure.

At this time there is no requirement for a hypnotherapist to be registered. It is therefore extremely important that you check out the training and qualifications of any practitioner with whom you choose to consult to ensure you are being treated by a therapist who has the appropriate knowledge, ethics and integrity that you would expect of them. If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact us for an informal discussion.
