Member organisations


Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC)

The CNHC encompasses many types of alternative therapy, including hypnotherapy.

In order to be admitted to the register a practitioner must have studied to the National Occupational Standards for that profession/discipline, or have reached the equivalent of the National Occupational Standards through other relevant training or at least three years of experience and been assessed by their peers.

A practitioner must also have professional insurance and agree to abide by the CNHC Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.


The General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR)

Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).

Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.

All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.


National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH)

The National Council for Hypnotherapy holds one of the largest registers of independent Hypnotherapists in the United Kingdom and strives to maintain the highest standards among its members.

There is an agreed Code of Conduct, an established Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure and all members are obliged to maintain comprehensive Public Liability & Professional Indemnity Insurance, maintain regular CPD (continuing professional development) hours, and attend Supervision when needed.

Hypnotherapy can enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice.

Client Feedback

Wendy nottm

James is an excellent therapist, very professional and kind
James is a very compassionate, professional and competent therapist- the environment he works from is clean, calming and a very pleasant place from which to have your treatment. Everything was explained in an easy to understand and interesting way and I felt extremely well cared for and relaxed. The sessions I had from James were lovely and very therapeutic- the benefit I obtained from them for my weight loss journey still remains with me today. I have a much better relationship with food now and the anxiety/stress I felt in relation to food has disappeared. I would recommend James to all my family and friends. Thank you James, my visits have been well worth it!

James helped me with my binge eating cycle
I came to James to help with my emotional binge eating cycle. I’d never tried hypnotherapy before but James made me feel very comfortable and explained the process clearly. I would definitely recommend anyone to give it a try with James. In the first couple of weeks I noticed I’d not had a binge episode! I’m looking forward to seeing my results over the coming months!


Steph, Nottm

I went to see James on the 4th of May.
I was a little concerned that I wouldn’t be able to be hypnotised as I am quite a giggly character.
James was so professional I felt instantly at ease.
The room was very calming and was a brilliant relaxing experience.
In over just a week I have lost 4lb I now make better food choices and the desire to keep eating out of boredom has stopped. I am also no longer drawn to “naughty” treats!
Absolutely loving my new healthy way of living! I can’t wait to see how I get on in the next few weeks! ????
Thanks James your amazing.


Liz, Nottingham

I went to James for with performance anxiety and general stress. We had a a hypnosis session where he addressed a very difficult time in my life. With one session I felt more confident, lighter and happier. My stress levels are now manageable most of the time. James is such a caring and empathetic therapist and I would recommend him to anyone.


Michelle, Nottm

Wow, impressed isn’t a strong enough word.
Nearly 30 years of smoking, yet after only one session with James I’ve now been smoke free for nearly 5 weeks, I was even offered a cigarette a couple of weeks ago and I declined, without hesitation. I’ve already recommended James’s services to a few of my friends that have been very impressed with how he’s helped me.


Alex, Nottm

I went to James at my wits' end as nothing I tried was helping to stop me from biting my nails, which I've done for years. One session with him and I can honestly say the compulsion to bite them has completely gone!! It was a very comfortable ambient atmosphere and I came out of the session feeling so relaxed and peaceful. I've recommended him to everyone I know,


Paul, Notts

I am now 5 Weeks without a Cigarette and feeling great , As a serving Police Officer I thought Cigarettes were a stress relief , How wrong I was ! They actually added to my stress as at times I had to do without one for hours on end which as a smoker is hard thing to do. With James’s help I have finally kicked this horrible habit into touch .....
