We are often asked for advice regarding the variety of training courses that are available.
The AACHP does not favour any particular training organisations. Nor do we publish a list of recognised training courses as this could be perceived as endorsement of those particular courses. We do, however, allow training organisations to submit their credentials and curriculum documentation to us for review and will give an indication of whether or not the training course would meet our required standards. Upon notification of a successful review outcome from us, the training organisation is authorized by us to inform their students and graduates that they would be eligible to apply for membership of the AACHP. Should you wish to seek confirmation of a training organisation's status with the AACHP, please contact us via email
Please be aware that there are now a number of training courses being marketed that fall well short of the industry standard. Unfortunately the marketing of some of the courses being advertised fails to make mention of whether the training is recognised as a professional qualification and this can lead to disappointment should you wish to pursue clinical hypnotherapy as a career.
If you are considering enrolling in a training course in clinical hypnotherapy, do make sure to ask the training organisation if the course they are offering would ensure eligibility to join a professional association which has been audited and accredited by private health insurance providers as this is usually an indication of the caliber of the course.
Please find below some questions for you to consider as you do your background research into the courses on offer:
