HCA National Hypnotherapists Register – Registration Form

How To Be Listed On The HCA National Hypnotherapists Register

The Hypnotherapy Council of Australia’s National Hypnotherapists Register is the only cross-association register of hypnotherapists in Australia endorsed by the peak body for the hypnotherapy profession. Developed from the previous ANHR register the HCANR is open to all practicing members (except student members) of HCA member associations. These are:

Guild of Australian Hypnotherapistsispa



If you are a member in good standing of one of these associations you are eligible to be listed on the national register. The purpose of the register is to promote hypnotherapy to the public, state and federal governments, private health funds as well as a way for the Hypnotherapy Council of Australia to support associations and in turn individual hypnotherapists.


The public


In a climate of industry self-regulation it is important that the public have access to a register of hypnotherapists who are qualified, practice under a code of ethics and are accountable to the wider profession. The HCANR provides this as all hypnotherapists listed on the register are members of associations who in turn form part of the profession’s peak body. Members of the public seeking the services of a hypnotherapists will be able to do so with the confidence of knowing that all hypnotherapists listed in the HCANR are qualified, practice ethically and are accountable to their professional bodies.


Government and private health funds


Since the deregulation of the practice of hypnosis in Australia, the government’s preferred choice is to interact with an industry peak body rather than several associations. The HCA was established with this purpose in mind and the HCANR is a practical outworking of this policy allowing both government and private health funds access to a register of qualified hypnotherapists.


Individual hypnotherapists


The benefits for individual hypnotherapists listed on the HCANR are:

  • a stronger more united profession
  • an opportunity to promote their practices
  • credibility of being a HCA Registered Hypnotherapist and taking advantage of the HCA’s promotion of the HCA National Register and also the unified identity that comes from this.
