FHT Winner_Support Group

Jacky Huson of Touch Therapy and her colleague Jayne Newsome who together started the Federation of Holistic Therapists Local Support Group in Nottingham in 2007 have won an award for ‘Joint Co-ordinator of the Year’. Jacky received her award from Vice President Paul Battersby at the FHT Annual Congress dinner in the Holiday Inn, Stratford on Avon on 5th September, when 3 group members joined her to celebrate.

The group meets every other month when they invite industry experts to share their expertise. In addition they have arranged outings and local training, provided therapists for local pamper events and organised the Chill Out Zone at Southwell Folk Festival from its inception.

Jacky says “It is also a tribute to the continued support of members who encourage us to keep running an active group, attendance at which helps with their Continuing Professional Development. Earning CPD ‘points’ is essential for therapists to maintain good professional practice, particularly now that FHT, as the biggest professional complementary therapy organisation, is accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

We both fervently believe that having such a network is very important for therapists to feel part of the bigger organisation through this local representation.

To be able to regularly meet other like-minded therapists, share information and continue our professional development in a convenient location, helps us feel supported and less isolated, as many of us may work alone.”

Citation from Paul Battersby – Vice President of FHT

“This award is for an LSG Coordinator or Joint-Coordinators who have supported the FHT, local like-minded members, other therapists and the public, through meetings, events and other activities.

It goes without saying that ALL of our coordinators do a fantastic job, but this award was introduced so that those attending local meetings could show their gratitude for the support their own LSG coordinators provide, all on a completely voluntary basis.

From the very first LSG meeting held by Jacky and Jayne back in 2007, the group has continued to enjoy a wide range of talks, activities and support provided by these two coordinators.

Just to give you a flavour, they have arranged for industry experts to present to the group; shared and celebrated the achievements of individual group members; arranged treatment swaps; organised therapy taster sessions at local events and festivals; provided talks and demonstrations at local colleges and libraries; organised trips to exhibitions and conferences, and training opportunities especially for the group; and organised social events, including trips to a meditation garden and an annual Christmas meal.

As practising therapists in their own right, Jacky and Jayne are both highly motivated and an inspiration to the group.”
