  1. UKCP Code of Ethics and Professional Practice 2019 

NOTE Members of the College of Outcome Oriented and Hypno-Psychotherapies, which includes all members of BeeLeaf must also abide by the modality-specific below code which is carried over from our previous codes:

Hypnosis shall not be used for the purposes of entertainment nor in any other way that can be construed as demeaning for the client, nor in any way that contradicts the therapist’s duty of care, eg inappropriate contact (physical, sexual, social) with the client.
See further details below

The new UKCP Code of Ethics and Professional Practice

You may be aware of a major positive development resulting from years of work of UKCP members, lay members and other professionals. It is the production of UKCP’s new Code of Ethics and Professional Practice. As of 1 October 2019, UKCP registrants are bound to comply with it. Organisational Members (OM) and Colleges must ensure their codes meet the UKCP code, or have a statement that their code should be read in conjunction with the UKCP code.

How does this impact you?

As a registrant of UKCP, your regulatory body is UKCP and they will consider any concerns about your suitability to be on the UKCP register. For complaints and concerns relating to behaviour which occurred on or after 1 October 2019, they will be considered against the new UKCP code; and those which occurred prior to 1 October 2019 will be considered by the old code (UKCP Ethical Principles and Code of Professional Conduct).

Members of the College of Outcome Oriented and Hypno-Psychotherapies, which includes all members of BeeLeaf must also abide by the modality-specific below code which is carried over from our previous codes:

Hypnosis shall not be used for the purposes of entertainment nor in any other way that can be construed as demeaning for the client, nor in any way that contradicts the therapist’s duty of care, eg inappropriate contact (physical, sexual, social) with the client.

In addition all BeeLeaf members in Training must abide by the Code of Practice for Trainees in Clinical Practice 2019.
