As part of our annual FHT Conference, we hold the FHT Excellence Awards to celebrate those raising the bar in therapy training and practice.
This year we had six categories covering the broad range of therapies supported by the FHT: Complementary Therapist of the Year, Beauty Therapist of the Year, Sports Therapist of the Year, Local Group Coordinator of the Year, Student of the Year and Tutor of the Year.
