Accreditation and Membership Organisations

National Accreditation

The CPHT HPD Course is nationally accredited by the following bodies:

  • NCFE
    When you successfully pass the Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma (HPD) you will be awarded a certificate of achievement by NCFE. The Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma (HPD) has been accredited by the NCFE as having measurable learning outcomes that have been benchmarked at Level 4 (using Ofqual’s Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF) level descriptors). NCFE accreditation gives assurance that the content of the hypnotherapy training course is of a high standard and meets the rigorous requirements of a national awarding organisation. NCFE accreditation also gives formal recognition to our hypnotherapy training courses which result in the ‘award’ of a certificate of achievement. This is an unregulated qualification and is not a nationally recognised qualification. NCFE are an awarding organisation recognised by the qualification regulators for England (Ofqual), Wales (Qualification Wales), Scotland (SQA Accreditation) and Northern Ireland (CCEA Regulation).

  • National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH)
    The National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH) has been approved as an NCFE centre and the HPD has been accredited by the NCFE to guarantee that it is of a high standard and meets the rigorous requirements of a national awarding organisation.
