Our most popular training event of the year returns this May, with an exciting new programme of talks to help you gain new skills and develop in your career as a therapist.
The 2019 FHT Training Congress will take place on 19-20 May at the Holistic Health Show, Birmingham, and will feature a range of talks by industry experts on a variety of topics – from therapy-specific modalities to general business advice.
This year we will be hosting more seminars for you to attend than ever before, with 30 sessions to choose from across the two-day event. Here’s a snapshot of what we have scheduled…
- Five key tips for working with those living with dementia
- The role of complementary therapy within the NHS
- Posture: does it matter and can it be corrected?
- Reflexology and the functional reflex therapy framework
- Producing a winning brand
- And more…
What’s more, you’ll gain one CPD point for every session you attend, so if you attend 5 sessions on both days, you’ll gain a total of 10 CPD points – the minimum number required for FHT Members per membership year.
Day passes for the event are available for just £50 for FHT members (£65 for non-members), and allow you to attend a full day of 5 seminars with a saving of £10.
Tickets to individual seminars cost £12 for FHT members and £15 for non-members.
This year the FHT is sponsoring The Wellness Seminars and Wellness Live at Olympia Beauty.
In celebration of this, FHT members are being offered 15% off all Wellness Seminars booked from now until the end of June, whether this is a single session booking for £15 or a day pass for £48.

Thank you to all members and speakers who joined us at the 2018 FHT Training Congress. You all made the event a huge success.
Our Training Congress took place alongside the Holistic Health show, on Sunday 20 and Monday 21 May at the NEC in Birmingham. We packed the schedule with experts on a wide range of topics, from marketing to massage, with hundreds of delegates enjoying 23 talks by leading therapy and business experts across both days. We had lots of people snapping up the few remaining tickets on the day, and even had to turn some away.
Topics included social media marketing, stretching your clients, mindfulness, being with terminally ill clients, Ayurvedic kansa wand face massage, postural analysis, aromatherapy skincare, laughter yoga, crystals for stress and anxiety and lots more.
We also had a stand within the main Holistic Health Show and were delighted to meet many existing and new FHT members.
Free goodie bags loaded with great materials and show offers were available at both the stand and Training Congress.
