NOTES FOR GUIDANCE

SUPPORTING DOCUMENTATION (All Practitioners)

It is vital that the GHR maintains as complete a record as possible with regard to Registrants’ relevant training and experience within the field. Consequently, copies of appropriate documentation must accompany all applications for Registration (i.e. Diplomas / Training Certificates etc.).
N.B. We reserve the right to personally contact applicants for the purpose of discussing their application prior to possible acceptance.
 

PROFESSIONAL INDEMNITY INSURANCE (All Practitioners)

Professional Indemnity & Public Liability Insurance is mandatory for Registration within the GHR. Although the GHR enjoys access to a choice of four particularly attractive and cost-effective Block Schemes, participation is not obligatory provided Registrants are suitably insured elsewhere. Applicants with current insurance must include copies of appropriate documentation with any application for Registration. Applicants without suitable provision should tick the relevant box on the Registration Form indicating that they would like to receive information on the schemes available through the GHR’s Brokers.
 

SUPERVISION (Newly qualified Practitioners only)

Newly qualified Practitioners are expected to engage in this beneficial process for a minimum of 2 hours in any 3 month period during their first 2 years of practice after qualification. (Thereafter, although ongoing Supervision is encouraged, it becomes a voluntary process). Supervision may be conducted via ‘one-to-one’, a ‘peer support group’ or a telephone / e-mail arrangement where circumstance dictates. Whichever method is employed, Registrants are advised to maintain a personal log of all such activity as they may be asked to provide suitable evidence of the previous 12 months Supervision at the time of their annual re-registration. Current locations of both One to One Supervisors and local Peer Support Groups are available on the GHR website but any Registrant experiencing difficulty in making suitable Supervision arrangements may contact the GHR head office for assistance.
N.B. Registrants who undertake Supervision as a condition of their membership of other healthcare professions may apply to have this taken into account, providing that it is compatible with and relevant to the practise of Hypnotherapy.
 

CONTINUING PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT (CPD) (All Practitioners)

CPD is considered to be important for practising Hypnotherapists in order that they may keep abreast of new developments and techniques within the field. Registrants are expected to participate in relevant CPD activity for a minimum of 25 hours annually whilst registered with the GHR. The GHR’s definition of CPD includes appropriate reading, Internet research or personal attendance at relevant workshops. Practitioners may be asked to provide suitable evidence of the previous 12 months CPD involvement at the time of their annual re-registration and to facilitate this, samples of approved, userfriendly Data Sheets are available to download from the Members’ Area of the GHR website.
N.B. Registrants who undertake CPD as a condition of their membership of other healthcare professions may apply to have this taken into account, providing that it remains compatible with and relevant to the practise of Hypnotherapy.
 

DISPLAY CERTIFICATES (Optional Item)

THE COMPLEMENTARY & NATURAL HEALTHCARE COUNCIL (CNHC) (Optional)

Every GHR practitioner registered at Practitioner status (or above) is entitled to be considered for fast track registration within the CNHC, the voluntary regulator for complementary medicine initially sponsored by the Department of Health. If you have ticked the appropriate box at the bottom of page 2 of the GHR Registration Form (and are subsequently assessed as being eligible), your name and contact email address will be automatically forwarded to them and they will subsequently contact you in order that you may consider registration with them. Please note that there is an annual fee payable to the CNHC for registration but that registration with them neither replaces nor conflicts with registration within the GHR.
