Professional Standards and Accreditations
The Professional Practitioner Programme is a fully integrated mindfulness based clinical hypno-psychotherapy diploma course, based upon the UK’s National Occupational Standard in Hypnotherapy (level 4 – Foundation Degree Level). In addition it can lead to the entirely optional, externally awarded qualification, The Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD).
Upon completion of the HPD, successful candidates will be awarded a certificate of achievement by NCFE. The 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).
The NCFE is recognised as an Awarding Organisation by the qualification regulators for England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
The 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.
NCFE accreditation gives assurance that the content of a 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 courses which result in the ‘award’ of a certificate of achievement. This award does not qualify you for a nationally recognised qualification.
The Professional Practitioner Programme is also accredited by The Association for Professional Hypnosis and Psychotherapy (APHP) and The National Register of Psychotherapists and Counsellors (NRPC).
