Advanced Diploma Programme
IAEBP therapists with ‘DHyp Adv.’ marked in the listing after their name, have successfully completed our Advanced Hypnotherapy Diploma Programme and have been awarded our Advanced Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Hypnoanalysis. These members are all Accredited members of the IAEBP.
The Advanced Diploma Programme is only open to IAEBP Members who have already completed a recognised Hypnotherapy Training Course. The programme takes a minimum of two years to complete and requires the Member to have (a) demonstrated to the IAEBP Council of Management that they are capable of practising at an advanced level, (b) undertaken at least 500 hours of supervised client-hours and (c) successfully passed eight of our advanced residential training seminars.
Supervision: Personal and Professional Support
All our members undertake to have mandatory supervision. Supervision, or more specifically, ‘Clinical Supervision’, is not about having somebody watch over your shoulder while you are working, it is about having a professional relationship with someone trained and experienced in your particular field where, working together, you can ensure that you are providing the very best treatment for your clients.
This, typically, would mean having weekly meetings where the therapist would discuss issues or difficulties with their clients, their personal life, or a combination of the two.
Some time ago, the IAEBP recognised that the common therapeutic ‘model’ of supervision wasn’t entirely suited to the rapid type of therapy that its Members practise, so it developed its own model. Very simply, we broke down supervision into two separate strands: Personal Support and Professional Support. Every IAEBP Member is now encouraged to get their supervision (which is a condition of Membership) from two different sources/therapists. We brought in some outside experts to help us design this new support/supervision strategy and we now have some experienced IAEBP Members who are trained in either Personal Support or Professional Support.
Starting in 2003, as part of its commitment to providing the most professional service possible, our predecessor, the IAPH, was the first and perhaps the only UK hypnotherapy organisation to check that none of its Members were registered on (what was then known as) the ‘POCALS’ list.
The ‘POCALS’ list (Protection of Children Act List System) was essentially a list of those people who had offended against, or where there was reasonable evidence to suggest that they had offended against, children. After a few years, government policy changed and it became impossible to check against just this one register/list. POCALS became part of the newly-created ‘Criminal Records Bureau Checks’. More recently, this has changed again to become the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
Disclosure and Barring Service – ‘DBS Checks’ – are available to certain individuals who work directly with either children, or other vulnerable people. The check itself involves a check for a criminal record and checks against various lists, such as POCALS and ‘List 99’.
As from 1st August 2009, all U.K. IAEBP Members will hold a current DBS and a ‘List 99’ Check.
