WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO Join the Hypnotherapy Council of Australia?

As the Peak Body for Hypnotherapy in Australia, HCA invites Australian Associations with hypnotherapists as members, and Australian Educational Organisations which teach hypnotherapy, to join the HCA.

As a Professional Peak Body, the HCA is not an association which can  accept individual practitioners as members.  Individual Practitioners need to join the Hypnotherapy Associations who focus on their individual needs as practitioners.

HCA welcomes Hypnotherapy Associations and Hypnotherapy Educational Schools to join HCA.

The HCA has the following objects, given it is a not for profit entity created for the sole purpose of promoting and enhancing the field of hypnotherapy.

Hypnotherapy Council of Australia has these objects in order to fulfil its mission.

Research, policy development, advice to government and hypnotherapy industry
Advocacy and representation to government and other mental health decision makers
• Information dissemination within hypnotherapy sector and to the communities
Consultation and coordination within hypnotherapy sector
• Enable better standards of education and professional practice.
