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).

See the LATEST NEWS for more information regarding COURSES and the LATEST GPMHSC APPROVAL. The courses are all practical and cost effective.

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. The  Clinical Course has an FPS ST related 4 module component (of the 6 modules) which has been approved by the GPMHSC for GPs to apply to Medicare for FPS registration to use the MEDICARE mental health FPS related item numbers eg 2721, 2723, 2725, 2727, 2729 and 2731 plus the telephone and telehealth items.

NB GPMHSC $600 FPS Training Subsidy Available

Eligible GPs will be refunded $600 upon successful completion of FPS ST and once their FPS provider status is confirmed by Services Australia (Medicare). The subsidy is available for GPs who undertake training and register between 1 August 2021 and 30 June 2022.

 The Clinical course is approved by the RACGP for Accredited Activity status and also by the GPMHSC for MH-CPD and FPS-CPD (modules 1, 2, 4, 5 and 6).

Training courses in Clinical Hypnosis - Hypnotherapy and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and the Focussed Psychological Strategies are being conducted in NSW in Sydney in 2022 and have been conducted in all states of Australia in the past as they will hopefully be again in the future.

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 nationally professionally accredited courses for mental health training 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, 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.

Medical practitioners including general practitioners and specialists, psychologists including clinical psychologists, nurses, midwives, dentists, physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors, social workers and occupational therapists are amongst eligible participants.

Please see the 'Latest News' section of this website for more details for GPs about applying for and using the Medicare mental health item numbers. Also check MBS online for the telehealth and telephone mental health related Medicare item numbers.

The 2022 course TIMETABLE is AVAILABLE on this site as of the 21/01/22.
