Accreditation for Therapists
The International Practitioners of Holistic Medicine (IPHM) has been developed to provide the general public and health professionals with a body of regulated professionals, all qualified to accredited levels. All of our full professional members have appropriate professional qualifications and are either directly accredited in their own right (e.g. NVQ’s BTech , Institute of Personal Development and degrees) or are from approved awarding bodies. The accreditations are awarded by the International Practitioners of Holistic Medicine, members of whom have thoroughly studied the coursework provided by the course provider or school, and we have approved their training methods and course material.
IPHM offers free advice to newly qualified holistic practitionerson how to get started, personal marketing tips, a proof reading service for leaflets and advertising and general guidance on what to do to make your business successful. Between our members we have many years experience in holistic therapies, palmistry/tarot reading, training and marketing so we can help you start up professionally.

Accreditation: by the Practitioners of Holistic Medicine (IPHM) is a guarantee of quality and expertise.
