All of our full professional members have appropriate professional qualifications and are either directly accredited in their own right (e.g. NVQ's BTech , Institute of Personal Development etc,) or are from approved awarding bodies. The accreditations are awarded by the International Practitioners of Holistic Medicine, members of whom have thoroughly studied the coursework provided by the course provider or school, and we have approved their training methods and course material.
