Top ten reasons for being an FHT member #3: professional representation


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.

Jon-Brazier-vice-president-speakingIt is thanks to the calibre of our Council, and more than 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 our members, we work closely with government-backed authorities in the fields of education, regulation, and business skills and enterprise, to help shape and improve the industry.
