What is a Board?

In our fields of NLP, Hypnotherapy, Coaching, EFT and Reiki, a board is a private trade organization dedicated to supporting its members in their respective fields. These are self-regulating fields, meaning the members of the field regulate themselves. Since there is no government licensing for these fields in most countries, provinces, and states around the world. Boards provide a way for members to show that they meet an independent standard of education recommended to practice in each respective field.

In addition to just certification, the IBCP also facilitates a strong community, assists members in continuing their development with continuing education, and assists members with business resources and training to further their success. You can learn more about the IBCP here.
