UK Confederation of Hypnotherapy Organisations


CAM in the NHS
The Government believes that complementary and alternative medicine has a role to play within the National Health Service but, to do this, it must meet the same standards as other NHS treatments, and must be clear and realistic about the contributions it can make. In the Government’s view the changes within the field of complementary and alternative medicine, which have begun, need now to be driven forward more decisively. To do this all the professional organisations, and the disciplines within them, must work together.

"UKCHO fully supports this and is an active participant in the process, and are pleased to announce the opening of the CNHC Register for Hypnotherapy on 1st December 2010.”




Welcome to the UK Confederation of Hypnotherapy Organisations. UKCHO is an umbrella body for the hypnotherapy profession in the United Kingdom. UKCHO’s mission is to ensure that standards of conduct, ethics and practice are appropriate for public safety.

If each of the many Hypnotherapy Organisations stands alone, each one of them is only one drop in the ocean. When all Member Organisations speak from one authoritative position, then UKCHO becomes a powerful and influential voice for government to listen to.

Announcement: Hypnotherapy and Professional Regulation

Since its foundation, the UK Confederation of Hypnotherapy Organisations (UKCHO) has had as its principal aim the establishment of a regulatory body, able to present hypnotherapy as a regulated profession to government, academic bodies and the public at large.

From 1st December 2010 this aim has been achieved with the introduction of voluntary self regulation for Hypnotherapists by the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).

UKCHO is very grateful to all those who, by their time, efforts and expertise, have played a major part in supporting this major achievement, which will enhance and develop the standards of conduct, ethics and practice, and education and training of hypnotherapy practitioners for the protection of the public.
