Who Are We?

The Canadian Society of Clinical Hypnosis – Ontario Division is an organization of professionals who study and practise clinical hypnosis to help our clients and patients experience desired changes in behaviour, emotions, habits, health, and lifestyle. 

Our mission statement is:  To promote the use of hypnosis in clinical practice by regulated health professionals, according to the highest ethical principles, through education and training, collegial support, and liaison with other professional hypnosis societies. 

All of our members are registered or licensed with a professional college to practise medicine, psychology, social work, dentistry, chiropractic, nursing, etc.  We do not train “lay hypnotists”, who are not professionals and therefore not registered with a college. It is essential that professionals practise within their scope of practice and have training in the ethical use of hypnosis and hypnotherapy. 

This Society began in 2002, a number of years after the previous professional hypnosis society ceased functioning in Ontario.
