The Guild's Aims and Objectives in Mid Wales
To reassure the general public about the safe use of complementary therapies. All Guild members are professionally qualified, insured and are members of a governing body.
To raise public awareness of the complementary therapies available in the local area.
To contribute to the well being of the local community through holistic therapies.
To provide peer support for professional, fully qualified, accredited practitioners who work in the area.
To provide educational and training opportunities for Mid Wales practitioners.
The Guild was setup in 2015 with two aims. The first was to provide a network for therapists in the Mid-Wales area to get together as a community. Our second aim is to provide a directory of regulated therapists for the public to have reassurance that our therapists are fully qualifed, members of a professional association or governing body and they are fully insured. Presently, very few complementary therapies are regulated by statute. Without governmental oversight anyone can set up in practice - without experience, training, qualifications, or insurance. That is why it is so important to choose a therapist that volunteers to be regulated.
The Mid Wales Guild of Holistic Therapists was formed by a group of local therapists. The aims of the Guild are:
The Committee 2020/21
The Guild came into being through the teamwork of three therapists living and working in Mid Wales. We are a like-minded group of therapists who wish to share good practice and promote holistic therapies in the local area. We view complementary health care as a unique vocation and believe that the personal qualities and skills of the therapist are a key factor to success.
