Training Providers

Welcome to the Course assessment section of the National Hypnotherapy Society website. As a training provider your students and graduates will be reassured that your course is run ethically and responsibly – and is recognised by an independent professional association that holds an accredited voluntary register under the Professional Standards Authority AVR scheme.


The Application Process

All applications must be received on a signed application form.

For those courses wishing to be accredited, the initial fee is £500 and £400 annually thereafter each renewal. Those courses which do not fully meet the requirements to become an accredited course the Society offers the opportunity to have the course quality checked.

This can be considered for anything from individual workshops, shorter foundation courses or distance learning courses.

We can consider individual workshops for CPD purposes on a per workshop basis. You must demonstrate a commitment to the HS Code of Ethics.

Fees for these courses are as follows:

Up to 1 Day Face to Face: £50 annually

Between 1 Day and 50 Face to Face Hours: £100 annually

More than 50 Face to Face Hours: £150 annually

Online only: £100 annually

For courses previously unknown to the Society (e.g. courses whose graduates have never applied for membership), courses recently created, or at the Society’s discretion, the Society may grant a provisional Quality Checked status for a course applying for accreditation (if our standards are met)for one year prior to granting accreditation. This is to enable the Society to audit the quality of the course and its applicants graduating from the course in more depth prior to granting accreditation.

It is expected that Accredited Training Providers ensure that all students join the Society as student members and maintain this membership during training.

On graduation, Accredited Training providers should only confirm that graduates are ready to practice (i.e. through the issuance of relevantly worded internally awarded certificates or Diplomas) if graduates are Society members who are entering the society’s register.

Accreditation may be terminated in any year where the course appears to be inactive, i.e. an insufficient amount of enrolments and/or completions are recorded.

We ask that the course leader from your training organisation apply for and be accepted as a member of the Society. We encourage all your tutors to join us too and if we accredit your course we will ask that a majority of your tutors become individual members of the Society.

The Application Form

You will be assigned an individual officer of the National Hypnotherapy Society to help with your application – we want to offer you a high level of personal service from the start.
