American Council of Hypnotist Examiners

The American Council of Hypnotist Examiners, with over 9500 members, is easily the largest, oldest and most important hypnotherapy certification agency in the United States. It was not the first hypnotist organization, but it was the first to initiate Registration, the first to initiate Certification, and and the first to initiate significant educational requirements for its members. It has always been the leader in setting and raising training standards, and is still the only major hypnotherapist certifying organization in the United States that requires its approved schools are state-licensed as required by law.

Under the dynamic leadership of founder Gil Boyne, the A.C.H.E. has done crucial work in many legislatures throughout the United States, far more than all the other certifying agencies combined, to protect and strengthen the profession. For example, the A.C.H.E. leadership was instrumental in helping create the first direct State-Certification law in the United States, which became effective in 2000 through the Indiana State Medical Licensing Board, where no other organization made a significant positive impact.

The A.C.H.E. is recognized by various state and federal government agencies. A non-licensed hypnotherapist will sometimes have a better chance to receive insurance reimbursement for clients if A.C.H.E. Certified. Also, A.C.H.E. members have various choices for reasonable professional liability insurance. The A.C.H.E. is the only major certifying organization which is approved for liability insurance for hypnotherapy with the American Professional Agency, which is the primary professional liability insurance carrier in the United State for psychologists, marriage counselors and social workers.

The advantages of A.C.H.E. Certification for non-licensed hypnotherapists are overwhelming, but there are important reasons why thousands of licensed therapists have also become A.C.H.E. Certified. The A.C.H.E. holds a spectacular International Hypnotherapy Conference each year, with classes and workshops given by leading hypnotherapists from around the world. Priceless information is disseminated to members in its newsletters. The A.C.H.E. has the highest educational standards of
any hypnosis organization in the world, only accepting schools which have satisfied exhaustive requirements of all appropriate state agencies, and as well as its own stricter standards.

Even for the licensed professional, A.C.H.E. Certification states more about the extent of their hypnosis training than any other membership. By comparison, the Society for Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis and the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis have just a fraction of the hypnosis training requirements of their members.
