Clinical Hypnosis CBT FPS Courses for Registered Health Professionals / Social Workers
The COLLEGE of MEDICAL HYPNOSIS (CMH) conducts hypnotherapy training courses in Australia which are all based upon Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and the Focussed Psychological Strategies (FPS).
Training courses in Clinical Hypnosis - Hypnotherapy and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and the Focussed Psychological Strategies are conducted in several states of Australia including Sydney, Brisbane, Darwin and Melbourne. We train nationally registered health professionals and social workers to use hypnotherapy as a set of adjunctive clinical skills. The CMH does not train non-health professionals to practise as hypnotherapists independently from their established health practitioner role, eg the nurse trained in hypnotherapy working in private practice continues to practise as a nurse, with the additional skills to also offer and to practise hypnotherapy.
These courses are amongst the highest professionally accredited courses in mental health training in Australia and have been so for more than 20 years. They are conducted for registered health professionals and social workers by registered professionals and are accredited by multiple professional health colleges and societies.
All training contains the Focussed Psychological Strategies (FPS) as required for medical practitioners, psychologists, occupational therapists and registered social workers for registration with Medicare for mental health item utilisation. Training is accredited for GPs to become initially registered with Medicare for Mental Health Skills training and FPS skills training to use the SEVEN extra Medicare mental health item numbers, ie 2715, 2717, 2712, 2721, 2723, 2725 and 2727. Please see the 'Latest News' section of this website for more details about applying for and using the Medicare mental health item numbers (note added 4/07/16).
These are amongst the highest Nationally Accredited training courses in Australia for Continuing Professional Development (PD or CPD) and Continuing Education (CE) for eligible health professionals as required by the Austalian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) for registration. Medical practitioners including specialists, psychologists including clinical psychologists, nurses, midwives, dentists, physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors, social workers and occupational therapists are amongst eligible participants.
