ICBCH Certification: The International Certification Board of Clinical Hypnotherapy will be issuing your Integrative Medical Hypnosis Practitioner certificate, and so membership with the ICBCH is required. If you’re not already a member, the ICBCH charges a small fee to join (~$100).

For hypnosis practitioners originally trained and certified through another organization, ICBCH respects your qualifications and offers a reciprocity hypnosis certification and membership.
