HypnoKairos' Code of Ethics


The interest and well-being of the patient constitute the single objective of therapeutic hypnosis.Mhe

Hypnosis shall  not be used as a  form of entertainment, for shows or street hypnosis. 

Hypnosis is considered as one possibility amongst other forms of scientific or clinically validated practises. As a result, the knowledge of hypnosis techniques should not in itself be sufficient to conduct therapeutic or research activities. Hypnosis practitioners must therefore have the required diplomas entitling them to practise in the discipline where their hypnotic activities are conducted: Doctors, Surgeons, Dentists, Psychologists, Midwives, Nurses, Physiotherapists, Orderlies.

Hypnosis practitioners shall restrict their clinical and scientific use of hypnosis to the areas of competence defined in the regulation of their profession.

Only health professionals who have been trained in institutes which are members of the CFHTB, ESH or ISH shall be eligible to apply to the association HypnoKairos. Failing that, the institutes will need to meet the following requisites: - that they train health professionals only – that they have only health professionals as trainers – that they be accepted by the board of directors of the association after consultation of the scientific committee. The same conditions apply to institutes willing to become a member or to publish on the site. 


Hypnosis practitioners shall not support or ease the practise of hypnosis by unqualified people.

Under no circumstances shall hypnosis practitioners provide training which would imply the teaching of hypnosis techniques to people who do not have appropriate qualifications. Exceptions will be made for students close to graduating in the professional domains where they will use hypnosis. In any case, the use of hypnosis remains contingent upon their obtaining the full qualification in the professional area.


Communicating information in relation to hypnosis to the media is recommended as long as it is based on precise knowledge and that it contributes to reducing the distortions and misconceptions related to hypnosis.


Conversely, hypnosis practitioners trained by the association are asked to avoid any action (paper, publishing or any media communication) inclined towards undermining the scientific aspect and the ethical dimension of the practise of hypnosis through generating a biased representation – confusion with magic and para-science - or a simplistic one which would consequently encourage unqualified practise. In this regard, there is no room for complacency. Along with providing references as to the sources used, these are two rules by which one should abide.

For all these reasons, although hypnosis practitioners who are still under training are encouraged to publish scientific work (supervised by their trainers), they are nevertheless to utterly avoid any public intervention (conferences, papers, interviews, contacts with newspapers and audiovisual media) as long as their training is not completed.

Failure to follow these commitments could lead the board of the association HypnoKairos to impose the penalty of exclusion.

The board of directors of HypnoKairos.
