I’m on the BBC in a regional program for the North East and Cumbria region.
From the BBC press release on the show:
“The show’s investigation shows that while there are several hypnotherapy organisations none of them is regulated by law and there are no standard qualifications.
This worries hypnotherapist Andy Austin who blows the whistle on his own industry.
He says that internet forums are full of clueless hypnotherapists and says that: “People are often spending their money in good faith, believing that the person they are paying the cheque to is fully registered, fully qualified and is a proper professional.“
The programme ends with some of the organisations with whom George the cat was registered applauding Inside Out’s investigative efforts.
Yet, one organisation responds by saying that they don’t check their applicants because they’re just a member benefits company.”
