Make an ethical grievance or complaint

If you have concerns that your hypnotherapist may have acted unethically in the provision of therapy services, you have the right to make a complaint.

If you have concerns about the ethical conduct of a hypnotherapist, we recommend that you download the AHA Code of Ethics which sets out the AHA’s standards for ethical practice.

Grievances and complaints to AHA about hypnotherapists

  • The AHA can only hear grievances and complaints against hypnotherapists who are / were current members at the time the service in question was provided.

  • When making a grievance or complaint to AHA, please check that the practitioner you are complaining about is listed on the AHA national register

  • In most instances, persons wishing to make a complaint will be asked if they have approached the practitioner to resolve the issue.  This is encouraged as the logical first step to resolution if it is possible.

  • The complaints form can be found on this web page.

  • To further enquire about making a grievance or complaint to AHA, please contact the AHA administration line on 1300 55 22 54 or email 

Complaints to health care complaints if practitioner is not a member of the AHA
