Join GoAH

GoAH Membership

Join GoAH, be part of something new

 

From 18th December 2021 until the next renewal period 30th June 2022 no joining fees or membership fees will be required of any clinical hypnotherapist who wishes to join the Guild of Australian Hypnotherapists.

The following will be required:

  • completion of the form below
  • a scan or photo of your current membership certificate from any other association meeting GoAH standards listed below. Please note these requirements will change after June 30th 2022

You will be contacted about your application within 7 working days.

Please note: we do not require, nor are we suggesting that you leave any association of which you many currently be a member. This is a personal choice and many hypnotherapists are members of more than one professional body. We are simply offering the opportunity of being part of the foundation of something new and different.

The only fee payable is the $50.00 annual fee for your listing on the HCA National Register of Accredited Hypnotherapists. GoAH will collect this on behalf of the HCA and it will passed on in full to the Hypnotherapy Council of Australia. You will be invoiced after your acceptance as a member of GoAH. This is only applicable if you have not already paid this fee through another association.
