Become a Board Certified Hypnotist (BCH)!


When a hypnosis practitioner has been granted the designation of "Board Certified" in Hypnosis, it means that the individual has elected to complete additional training and has demonstrated an advanced level of skill. Board Certification is a mark of distinction. It indicates the education that he or she has undertaken beyond the minimal standards and competency requirements  of the association.
