Federation of Holistic Therapists
The Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT) is the largest and leading professional association for therapists in the UK and Ireland. With thousands of members offering a broad range of specialisms - from sports and remedial therapies, to complementary healthcare and holistic beauty treatments – the FHT is the association of choice for professional therapists.
The FHT is governed by an elected Council of members who oversee a permanent team of FHT staff, many of who are also qualified therapists. The Council positions are voluntary and unpaid, and attract senior practitioners and educators from across the therapy industry.
Thanks to the calibre of the Council, and 50 years experience as a therapy association, that the FHT is considered the leading authority in its field and is frequently called upon for expert guidance and opinion. On behalf of members, they work closely with government-backed authorities in the fields of education, regulation, and business skills and enterprise, to help shape and improve the industry.
A part of the FHT mission is to maintain and promote the highest standards in practice and professionalism, which is why they actively support and encourage members to develop their skills and knowledge. This not only helps the therapist member to reach their full potential, it also greatly benefits their clients, employers and the reputation of our industry as a whole.
Accredited Voluntary Register
A voluntary register that has been accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
The PSA is an independent body, accountable to Parliament. The PSA was asked by the Government to set up the AVR scheme in 2012, to offer enhanced protection for anyone seeking health and social care services that are not statutorily regulated.
Accreditation of its register means that the FHT has met the PSA’s demanding standards in terms of governance, education and training, setting standards, managing the register, providing information and dealing with complaints.
The AVR quality mark gives extra peace of mind for anyone looking for a complementary healthcare therapist, letting them know that anyone who holds the mark is committed to high standards.
