Accreditation/ Certification Policy for Coaches

The International Guild for Hypnotherapy, NLP, and 3 Principles Practitioners and Trainers (IGH3P) is committed to maintaining the highest standards of professional conduct among its coaches. To ensure this, we have established a rigorous accreditation policy that all coaches must adhere to.

  1. Education and Training: Training organisations must offer a comprehensive curriculum that covers all the essential aspects of coaching, mentoring, hypnotherapy, NLP, NSP, the 3 Principles, and neuroscience applications for coaching.. The curriculum must be grounded in evidence-based practices and regularly updated to reflect the latest research and trends in the field

  2. Experience: Coaches must have a certain amount of practical coaching experience. This includes hours spent coaching clients, which must be documented and verified.

  3. Continuing Professional Development: Coaches must engage in ongoing professional development to keep their skills and knowledge up-to-date. This could involve attending workshops, seminars, or conferences; undertaking further training or education; or participating in professional coaching networks or communities.

  4. Ethical Conduct: Coaches must adhere to the IGH3P's Code of Ethics. This includes respecting the rights and dignity of clients, maintaining confidentiality, and avoiding conflicts of interest.

  5. Supervision and Mentorship: Coaches must participate in regular supervision or mentorship sessions. This provides an opportunity for coaches to reflect on their practise, receive feedback, and address any challenges or issues they may be facing.

  6. Insurance: Coaches must have appropriate professional indemnity insurance to protect themselves and their clients.

  7. Complaints and Disciplinary Procedures: Coaches must comply with the IGH3P's complaints and disciplinary procedures. This includes cooperating with any investigations into their conduct or practise.

  8. In lieu of full accreditation being granted , the coach may get certification status, if all requirements for certification are met.
  9. Accreditation Review

    Please note that before you can gain full Accreditation, there will be an additional step as per below

    Once your application is submitted, the IGH3P (accrediting body) will conduct a formal review. This may involve a site visit, interviews with coaches and clients, and a thorough examination of your documentation. The purpose of the review is to verify that you meet the accreditation standards. 

This accreditation and certification policy ensures that all IGH3P coaches meet the highest standards of professional conduct and competence. It provides assurance to clients and the public that our coaches are qualified, experienced, and ethical professionals.
