Professional Regulation

Since the necessary changes in professional standards required by regulation 2010-11, the BIH continuously monitors new applicants wishing to join as practitioner members. Both new and existing members agree to uphold these standards through the BIH Code of Ethics. This includes being registered with the ICO to comply with Data Protection Laws, achieving annual CPD (min.15hours), hold adequate and current insurance that covers practitioners in their work with clients. In addition, they also agree to maintain a professional 'fitness' to practice ethically with members of the public they serve.  

Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) currently performs the role of Regulation for the hypnotherapy profession here in the UK.
