The honour, which is granted to those who have made a significant contribution to the profession, was announced during the NCH ‘Hypnotherapy Extravaganza’ at the Royal Society for Medicine on November 19th.
Rob Woodgate, who was Editor of the Hypnotherapy Journal for 5 years, is the youngest Fellow of the NCH and was recognised for his voluntary work within the NCH during the regulation of the hypnotherapy profession. He was also commended for his innovative Hypnotension approach to using hypnotherapy for people with high blood pressure.
Mr Woodgate, who operates the North Kent Hypnotherapy practice with his wife Heidi, said: “I was thrilled to be nominated for a Fellowship. To be accepted as a Fellow by my peers is the crowning moment of my career so far.”
