This is to inform all certificate holders that the National Board for Certified Clinical Hypnotherapists will be terminated by December 31, 2021. The number of professionals certified during the past few years has produced insufficient revenue to sustain the Board into the future. In addition, the office staff have resigned and do not intend to continue working in future. As the executive director for administration of NBCCH, I regret making this necessary decision.

Executive Director for Administration, NBCCH
