AHA register of clinical supervisors
Supervision is a mandatory requirement for all AHA practicing members. All practicing members must complete a minimum amount of hours of supervision (see AHA Prospectus) to maintain their membership. Supervision is an important part of an AHA hypnotherapist’s membership requirements, it also acts as a form of quality control for the public.
The benefits of using an AHA supervisor
The most important benefit from your perspective is that to gain AHA membership, Clinical Supervisors have to meet the high standards set by the AHA in terms of training and qualifications.
AHA Clinical Supervisors have to follow guidelines about professional conduct, responsibilities and confidentiality that are set out in the AHA Code of Ethics.
AHA Clinical Supervisors also have the benefit of the Association to help them with their work and continuing professional development. AHA Clinical Supervisors bring the benefit of this support to the work they do with their clients – you.
- All AHA Registered Clinical Supervisors meet the following criteria:
- Eligible for or are Clinical members of the AHA.
- Completed an AHA recognised course of training in Clinical supervision.
- Carry a current certificate of Professional Indemnity Insurance and Public Liability Insurance
- Complete a minimum of 10 hours of professional/clinical supervision annually.

About clinical supervisors
Every applicant for recognition as an accredited supervisor for the AHA must first be deemed likely to be accepted without reservation by all the clinical members.
Every Clinical Member and above is therefore entitled and obliged, if an applicant is considered unacceptable (with particular respect to good fame, personal reputation and character), to report any such reservation, substantiated in writing, for consideration by the Executive.
The AHA will always uphold the principle of natural justice / procedural fairness; however, every applicant is required to acknowledge that the Executive may refuse to accept the application, or may refuse to admit the applicant for accreditation, without the Executive being required to provide any reason or explanation for its actions.
If any clinical member considers that a current applicant is not acceptable, they are to forward their substantiated report to the Executive. The Executive will treat all such reports in the strictest confidence.
If no such report is received within two weeks of distribution of the applicant’s name, the nominated referees will be contacted to confirm the Applicant’s bona fides. The Interview Panel will be convened as soon as practicable thereafter.
