It is designed to be a Referral Service of Certified Members to healthcare providers as well as the general public. Members are required to graduate from an approved school of hypnotherapy, completing our minimum educational requirements, and earning 30 continuing hours each year to maintain membership.

To ensure that the profession continues to build upon our excellent foundation, the GHSC maintains robust assessment and validation criteria for both Training Schools and Practitioners.
