What is the CNHC Register?
The CNHC Register is provided by Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). CNHC is the national voluntary regulator for complementary healthcare practitioners in the UK. Our key function is to enhance public protection, by setting standards for registration with CNHC. We anticipate that obtaining the CNHC “quality mark” will swiftly be recognised as the hallmark of quality for the sector. Over time, the general public and those who commission the services of complementary healthcare practitioners will be able to choose with confidence, by looking for the CNHC quality mark. 
Hypnotherapy Society
The National Hypnotherapy Society is a Learned Society whose primary purpose is the advancement of the knowledge of hypnotherapy and the fostering of professional hypnotherapy expertise through training, accreditation and continued professional development of our members. The Society seeks to contribute to public wellbeing both through the use of hypnotherapy and by ensuring that hypnotherapists are safe, competent and ethical in practice. The Society is a Not For Profit Company.The Society has a cooperation agreement with the Royal Society for the Promotion of Health, which means that our members are eligible to join the Royal Society at appropriate grades.Our belief is that hypnotherapy is not a stand-alone therapy but one that fits within the wider community of ‘talking therapies’. This is reflected within our membership grades where we award the highest grades to those of our members who have qualifications and experience in counselling and psychotherapy as well as hypnotherapy. We believe that this combination of skills enables a practitioner to offer the best possible service to their clients.

We support and promote counselling and counsellors, offering a wide variety of benefits to ourmembers and training organisations. We also play a role in ensuring that the best interests of the clients of hypnotherapy are protected. We acknowledge that we have a duty of care to the public.

We are a not for profit organisation bound by appropriate rules of governance including aConstitution, Code of Ethics and various standards of training and membership.
