A Route to accredited register TM
It’s now vital that counsellors and therapists belong to an Accredited Register recognised by the Professional Standards Authority - the same authority which oversees the General Medical Council, Nursing & Midwifery Council, and others. Chrysalis Courses are your route to this recognition, via the National Counselling Society and National Hypnotherapy Society.
