The PSA uses accredited registers to assess organisations which register unregulated health and social care practitioners.

The organisation oversees the General Medical Council, Nursing & Midwifery Council, National Counselling Society, National Hypnotherapy Society and others.

You can join an AR by taking a Chrysalis course. This is because, where indicated in our course guide, training programmes are fully accredited by either the National Counselling Society or the National Hypnotherapy Society, which are both AR holders.
When you are accepted onto your chosen Chrysalis course, you’ll become a student member of either the National Counselling Society or the National Hypnotherapy Society. When you complete your chosen course you’ll become an accredited member.
There are a host of benefits to membership of either the National Counselling Society of the National Hypnotherapy Society. Not only will membership allow you to join an AR recognised by the PSA, you could also become eligible to join the Royal Society of Public Health. This is an independent charity which dedicates itself to the improvement of public health and well-being.
