Professional Bodies

 

Knowing that a practitioner holds an appropriate qualification and has undergone specific training in the field reassures potential clients when they are selecting who to work with.

 


TOM recommends that Practitioners obtain registration or accreditation with a professional body.

 

Currently, many complementary and alternative therapies are not subject to statutory regulation and so various professional bodies have set themselves up with a view to self-regulating their profession.

Whilst Practitioners are under no legal obligation (with the exception of statutorily regulated professions) to register with one of these bodies, being a member means that you have met specific eligibility requirements set by the organization and that you are bound by that organisation’s code of ethics and complaints procedure.

Each professional body will have developed their own unique set of criteria for membership, which in most cases will involve proof of a relevant qualification and evidence of training within the field.
