Australian Hypnotherapists' Association




Welcome to Australian Hypnotherapist's Association

The AHA is the National Registration Body for hypnotherapists. If you are looking for a professional Hypnotherapy Association to join... then this is the one. Not only is the AHA the oldest Hypnotherapy Association in Australia, it is also the largest independent Hypnotherapy Association in Australia. The AHA is the voice for professional hypnotherapists.

AHA recognition

The AHA has been recognised as an authority on Clinical Hypnotherapy by both Governmental and private agencies. AHA members are regularly invited to speak at various Community and Service organisations about hypnosis and hypnotherapy. AHA members are recognised as health professionals by most of the Private Health Funds.

What is the AHA?

The Australian Hypnotherapists' Association came about by a small group of clinical hypnotherapists who had already been practicing for a number of years and who came together because they were determined to set high ethical and professional standards for the hypnotherapy profession in Australia. They searched each other out to support each other and share their knowledge. That happened in 1949 and AHA members have been continuing this practice of sharing their knowledge ever since....

The AHA is administered by a Board of Directors, elected each year by the members. The Board includes professional hypnotherapists, counsellors, registered nurses, health care workers and psychologists who are actively involved in clinical hypnotherapy. The AHA has steadily grown in membership and now has members in nearly every state of Australia and as far a field as New Zealand; Russia; Thailand, Hong Kong and London.

Members of the AHA come from many nationality backgrounds, making a wide range of languages available for clients seeking hypnotherapy. The range of languages spoken include: Arabic, French, Cantonese, Dutch, Greek, German, Hebrew, Italian, Mandarin, Polish, Russian, and Spanish.

The AHA is in complete agreement with the medical profession in its opposition to the type of 'hypnotist' who makes wild and exaggerated claims. A Hypnotherapist who is a member of the Australian Hypnotherapists' Association is governed by a sworn code of ethics to take the deepest possible interest in every patient, to be at all times conscientious, persevering, kind, patient, thorough and trustworthy and to treat all information acquired during treatment as highly confidential.

The AHA is the National Registration Body for hypnotherapists. Not only is the AHA the oldest Hypnotherapy Association in Australia, it is also the largest independent Hypnotherapy Association in Australia. The AHA is the voice for professional hypnotherapists.

The AHA is the only hypnotherapy Association that does not have a direct relationship with any particular teaching institution. So what does that mean? It means that we evaluate our members by their academic output and not just because they have done a course by the school that has established an association just to accredit its own students.
AHA members are trained, examined and sworn to maintain the highest standards and ethics. The Australian Hypnotherapists Association's membership includes:

  • Professional Hypnotherapists
  • Psychologists
  • Counsellors
  • Therapists
  • Registered Nurses
  • Health Care Professionals
If you are an Australian or International hypnotherapist (or a school looking for a professional Association for your students) and wish to become a member please contact the membership secretary Beryl Bachell on (02) 9326 7997 or the AHA Free Advisory line 1800 067 557.
