Thank you to everyone who attended this wonderful day of CPD and networking. We have received some great feedback from our members:
"I'm just emailing you to say thank you so much to the team at Complementary Health Professionals for laying on such a fantastic, varied and informative number of guest speakers for the conference last Saturday. I had never been to a conference like that before and really really enjoyed the day. I want to get involved with lomi lomi massage now :-D"

CHP Student of the Year 2018
This was awarded to Gerry Houghton MCHP who completed her Reflexology diploma with Julie Quinn in 2017/18 despite personal injury and distractions. Gerry is already a CHP member as she is a practising aromatherapist and wanted to add reflexology to her skills set. All of her work was of a very high quality and she was always very supportive of her classmates and is a very caring person and a wonderful therapist. Gerry practises in South East London.
We were delighted to be able to award a Fellowship this year to Sue Lincoln FCHP who has been associated with us for many years. We accredit her school "The Therapy Training Centre" in Scarborough, North Yorkshire and we wanted to recognise the hard work and effort Sue puts into organising such high quality standards that helops to upholds the reputation of our organisation. We receive excellent feedback from her students about the support they are given during their studies from Sue and this was also reflected when she won the Best Training Centre Award from the Holistic Business Awards in London in 2015.
