I was talking with a colleague about my board certification and I realized that I’ve never done a blog that talked about the NGH – the National Guild of Hypnotists.
It is the oldest and largest group of hypnotists in the world, 66 years and nearly 20,000 members. They are largely responsible for the formation of the profession of hypnosis today. They have created standards of practice, a code of ethics, standardized a certified training, offer continuing education, and offer Board Certification.
I am Board Certified through the Guild, the first of 3 levels. This means I have at least 2 years of practical experience, have passed written and oral interviews administered by the NGH Board, and have written a paper. The next two levels are by invitation after having made a significant contribution to the profession – I’m working on that!
I am proud to be a Guild member and Certified Trainer for them. I believe in the importance of professionalism and commitment to the profession by fulfilling my continuing education requirements and to training others to exceed and improve standards.
Don’t forget to join me this Saturday and call in with your questions – online or on the radio – at 10 am for the debut of Minding’ Your Health – Take Back Control on AM950.
I’m Roberta Fernandez, a Board Certified Hypnotist and Certified Trainer at The FARE Hypnosis Center, helping you take back control by unlocking the power of your mind to reach your goals of any kind.
