What is a Clinical Hypnotherapist

A Clinical Hypnotherapist is a mental health professional with extensive training and expertise in the clinical application of hypnosis in therapy.

The training includes a working knowledge of The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). The DSM is the handbook used by health care professionals throughout the world as the authoritative guide to the diagnosis of mental disorders. The DSM contains descriptions, symptoms, and other criteria for diagnosing mental disorders. In addition to this working knowledge, a Clinical Hypnotherapist has extensively studied the specific protocols that help their clients recover from these disorders and so much more.

As of the fall of 2019, Hypnotherapy is unregulated in most Canadian provinces. That means that anyone can call themselves a Clinical Hypnotherapist.

ARCH Canada is the only regulating and certifying body in Canada that insures it’s registered members have the required training necessary to not only title themselves a Clinical Hypnotherapist but to apply the clinical application of hypnosis in therapy.
