All Chrysalis® courses are recognised and accredited by appropriate national professional organisations. This recognition is important for practice, and means that graduates from our courses can become full members of national professional organisations such as the National Counselling Society. Joining a professional body gives our students a host of benefits: professional insurance and recognition, access to newsletters, journals and websites, peer support, reduced advertising rates, and so on.
The Advanced Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling is accredited by the Royal College of Nursing and students who have successfully completed a course are eligible for a RCN certificate. In addition, Chrysalis graduates, as members of our designated professional bodies, are eligible to join the Royal Society of Public Health (RSPH). If they progress professionally, senior members can become Fellows of the Royal Society of Public Health (FRSPH).
The Open University has considered the Education and Training Programme from Chrysalis® and assigned a credit value to the learning. This provides an endorsement of the quality, amount and level of the learning within the Framework for Higher Education Qualifications in England, Wales and Northern Ireland (FHEQ) and credits for each course are listed on our course pages. Students receive their award from Chrysalis®, and in addition can download a certificate confirming the credit award from the OU website at www.open.ac.uk/credit-rating Students may find this helpful if they wish to study at the OU or other higher education institutions. Students even have the choice to do a version of the course which is not credit rated, with easier essays and a more informal assessment method, if they so wish.
The Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Counselling Skills is fully accredited and recognised by the National Hypnotherapy Society, which is the UK's largest accrediting body for hypnotherapy and was instrumental in the establishment of National Occupational Standards for hypnotherapy. Our graduates join the HS as an automatic right as fully recognised, professional members ("MHS"). We are also accredited to professional level by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council ("GHSC").
