Karen Hemmings Dip.AHT - The Healing Mind

Making a change can take courage, and I recognise that people like to be fully informed, so I include a lot of information on my website www.thehealingmind.co.uk to help you understand how I can help.

Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council
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
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

There are a number of reviews on my website, here is just one to give you an example:
“ I have had hypnotherapy before with limited success so to have had such an amazing experience with Karen at The Healing Mind has literally blown me away!
She is a lovely person to begin with, but what is so extraordinary is her methodology. She listened to my rambling on our telephone consultation the week before our appointment and somehow managed to pinpoint my requirements. Throughout the session ( in her beautiful, calm treatment room ) I was so relaxed and impressed by her understanding of my needs.
I immediately felt better- but emotional- after we finished, and in the following days felt like a weight had lifted from me.
I can’t wait to see her again next week.
Highly, HIGHLY recommend. "
