Press release: A local Hypnotherapist becomes one of the first in the country to be CNHC registered. February 2011

Annette Boden, a local hypnotherapist in the High Peak and East Cheshire has become one of the first hypnotherapists in the country to achieve a new national standard of excellence for her therapy and has been registered by the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), the UK regulator for complementary healthcare. This recognition places her at the forefront of a national drive to provide a benchmark for standards and safety for the public. Practitioners registered with the CNHC meet national occupational standards and abide by a rigorous code of conduct, performance and ethics.

Annette says “Achieving registration is not only great news for me and my clients, but a vital step for hypnotherapy.” Hypnotherapy is a very beneficial therapy for many issues, including stress and anxiety management, insomnia, alcohol problems and many other issues that can lead to further serious health issues if not addressed.

Hypnotherapy is one of 11 disciplines now recognised by the CNHC. Members of the public can search the CNHC register to find practitioners in their local area. More than 40,000 searches were carried out last year.

By providing a verification of standards, the CNHC allows GPs, hospitals, private healthcare providers and insurance companies to refer patients to hypnotherapy practitioners or to make hypnotherapy more readily available in health centres, clinics, doctors’ surgeries and hospitals.

Annette has also recently been very pleased to join the board of trustees for Anxiety UK  and hopes that achieving this registration further supports this role as she looks forward to raising awareness about  Anxiety and  in particular OCD during national OCD week from 7 to 13 February 2011.
