About the Hypnotherapy Council of Australia
The Hypnotherapy Council of Australia (HCA) is the national peak body for Clinical Hypnotherapy in Australia. HCA is comprised of and represents hypnotherapists’ associations and hypnotherapy training organisations across the country.
As a the peak body for our profession, HCA provides a cohesive identity for the diversity of hypnotherapy methodologies and promotes their professional and ethical practice for the benefit of the community. HCA also sets standards for training and ethics for the practice of clinical hypnotherapy in Australia. The council is committed to unifying the hypnotherapy profession through a foundation of strong ethical principles, and an emphasis on effective practice offering real assistance to those members of the public who seek our help.
HCA recognises Australian incorporated associations and educational organisations that meet our criteria for membership, including HCA standards of ethics and training. When seeking a clinical hypnotherapist look for the HCA logo on associations websites and the HCA’s Registered Hypnotherapist logo on individual hypnotherapist and practice websites.
Associations and educational institutions
To join an HCA Member Association, a practicing hypnotherapist must meet standards of ethical conduct, meet or exceed minimum standards of training, and have ongoing education and supervision each year. They must also hold current First Aid and Professional Indemnity Insurance documentation. In addition to this, many HCA Member Associations can provide access to provider numbers to their therapists issues by private health insurance companies who provide such rebates for hypnotherapy.
Does your hypnotherapist meet these standards?
Do the hypnotherapist you are considering have an HCA “Registered Hypnotherapists” or Member Association or ANHR logos on their practitioner websites? More than ever in deregulated environment an HCA Registered Hypnotherapist is a symbol of quality and competence.
It is a requirement for educational institution membership of HCA that the graduates of HCA Member Educational Organisations meet or exceed the national minimum standard of training, and that graduates must be eligible to join a HCA recognised association. This ensures professional standards are met for new practitioners to enter the profession. HCA is committed to raising the standard of professional training in Australia.
