(PRWEB UK) 8 February 2013
A change in the rules regarding private health care has lead to hypnotherapy being accepted as a form of treatment by private health care companies. Now organizations such as Health Shield, Simply Health and a number of specific employer plans with Westfield Health will pay for therapist’s time if they are registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council.
This is great news for hypnotherapists nationwide including those that are already registered with The National Council of Hypnotherapy, which gives them the opportunity to then in turn register with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council. ‘CNHC registration is recognized for reimbursement with a number of private health cash plan providers. This means that clients who are members of the relevant plans can claim for the cost of the treatments,’ a statement from CNHC explained.
The National Council of Hypnotherapy is delighted to see the change and added, ‘The NCH is very pleased that a number of healthcare companies are now recognizing hypnotherapy as an effective treatment for their members. We have been working towards this goal for a long time and it is great news that the CNHC has been able to expedite this process.’
The development means that hypnotherapy will be given the chance to reach wider audiences and help treat patients with a variety of ailments.
