A NORTH Somerset hypnotherapist has become one of the first in the country to achieve a new national standard of excellence in her therapy.

Penny Ling has been registered by the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), placing her at the forefront of a national dive to provide a benchmark for standards and safety for the public.

Practitioners registered with the CNHC meet national occupational standards and have to abide by a rigorous code of conduct, performance and ethics.

The 45-year-old of Dunster Gardens in Nailsea works from the Oakspring Clinic in Clevedon.

She said: “Achieving registration is not only great news for me and my clients, but a vital step for hypnotherapy.”

Hypnotherapy is one of 11 disciplines now recognised by the CNHC and its database can be searched to allow people to find registered practitioners.
