The Australian Society of Hypnosis (ASH) directly provides training in hypnosis for any professional who holds registration with the Australian Health Practitioners Agency. The Society views hypnosis, not as an independent science, but as an adjunct to the range of treatment modalities for a wide range of medical, psychological, and dental applications.

Branches of the Society, located in each state, also run advanced and specialist hypnosis training programmes designed to foster clinical skills development across the range of applications of hypnosis in various health care settings. The Society holds an annual congress and workshops, to facilitate a collegial and educational setting for members. It also encourages cooperative relationships with fellow professionals in hypnosis throughout the world, through professional and personal contacts with other national hypnosis societies.
