I am a member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT). They are one of several professional associations and are widely regarded as the best within the industry. In order to remain registered, therapists must attain professional career development each year, in compliance with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC, who the FHT are affiliated to). This ensures high standards are always reached and maintained.


My insurance is by TIS, which is available through the FHT. Qualifications are approved before acceptance. My policy is up to date and renewable upon a yearly basis.
