EMCC Credentials

Certified Business Coach has been accredited by the European Mentoring and Coaching Council at the Practitioner Level.

Students who complete this certification can apply to be officially accredited by EMCC and receive the EMCC Global Individual Accreditation (EIA) under their name.

The EIA is relevant for anyone involved in mentoring/coaching, whether it is just one part of the role or the main function. You can apply for accreditation at the Practitioner level or below (Foundation level) depending on the number of coaching hours you have completed as below:

i) 'Foundation level EIA' (50 hours and at least 1 yr prior experience) or

ii) 'Practitioner level EIA' (100 hours and at least 3 years prior experience)

Regulation of Clinical Hypnotherapy Around the World:

Hypnotherapy and Clinical Hypnotherapy are for most parts of the world unregulated, and therefore self-regulated, the same as for coaching and many other complementary practices. Meaning anyone can (and do) award certifications and give accreditation. Therefore, not all certifications or accreditations are equal, and it should be noted that the most valuable certification and accreditation any student on the course can have is that they are certified by Mindvalley and by Paul McKenna.

The ability to operate as a Certified Hypnotherapist varies around the world. Some regions require anyone practicing Hypnotherapy and Clinical Hypnotherapy to also be a medical practitioner, the ability to operate locally is something that students need to do due diligence for themselves.

Students receive certification from Mindvalley by completing the course and meeting the minimal study and practice requirements as laid out in the introduction lessons.
