About The Professional Board of Hypnotherapy

The Professional Board of Hypnotherapy, Inc. has been formed as a voluntary membership organization and association to provide the service of networking, education, promotion, and marketing for our member therapists. We have also included a helpful Hypnotherapist Finder Search Engine in this webpage.
Within our Hypnotherapist Finder you will be able to search all those members who choose to have their professional practices listed for the general public to search for a PBH Certified Hypnotherapist. Please be advised that not all of our members are listed within the directory, only those who choose to list on our internet data base. Some members, for whatever reason, may choose not to be listed. Our Hypnotherapist Finder database service is a free service provided by the PBH we don’t charge for referrals we offer to the general public.

The Professional Board of Hypnotherapy has been set up to provide a very valuable service, that of providing an inclusive voluntary membership organization in which all trained and certified practitioners of hypnosis, by whatever name they may be called, may be included as a member should they qualify for membership. We certify based upon hypnosis training and hours of training received in the hypnosis field. Our members include a vast array of Certified Hypnotists, Hypnotherapists, Master Hypnotists, and many other professionals from other disciplines, such as, Medicine, Social Work, and Psychology who also have approved certified hypnosis training. Trained Hypnotherapists and students can benefit from being involved in a vast network individuals interested in the ethical practice of hypnosis.

We also provide a listing of approved training institutions, marketing, networking, increased internet presence, annual conventions and meetings, local meetings and chapters in your area.
