Do hypnotherapists have a governing body?

The National Guild of Hypnotists is a not-for-profit educational corporation in the State of New Hampshire. Initially founded in Boston, Massachusetts in 1950, the Guild is a professional organization composed of dedicated individuals committed to advancing the field of hypnotism. Their certification is taught in a dozen or more languages and they currently have over 7500 members in 45 countries. We have a local chapter here in Halifax.

The National Guild of Hypnotists requires its members to conform to very strict code of ethics. All members are held accountable for their actions and any deviation from these ethical principles may result in revocation of their membership. Continuing education is also required and must be taken from certified instructors.
