Hypnotherapy Associations & Qualification Letters

You will usually find letters after a Hypnotherapists name.
The letters will relate to either the qualifications they have gained or to the Professional Hypnotherapy Associations to which they belong. There may be a preceding letter such as M (member) or F (fellow)
On this page we have links to some of the Professional Hypnotherapy Organisations, where you can check the membership criteria etc.
