Getting accredited if you are therapist or course provider with IPHM
Published on 30 September, 2016 | Accreditation
Should Therapists and Course providers be accredited?
What is accreditation?
Accreditation if you are working as a therapist or perhaps offering workshops and training courses is worth thinking about. You may want to consider getting your business accredited. There are so many therapists and healers now working with the public that it can be difficult to know whom to select when either choosing a reputable therapist or a training provider. If you want to provide a professional service to your clients then showing them that you belong to a reputable accreditation board can make all the difference.
Why get Accredited?
There are many reasons to advertise yourself as an accredited therapist. Accredited therapists usually have an outside body that ensures they agree with their code of ethics. This can help to ensure that your chosen therapist or course provider has already been assessed and therefore should offer you a good, honest and trustworthy service.
Why be accredited with IPHM?
Many accreditation boards specialise on one particular therapy, for instance you may join an accreditation board for counsellors or massage therapists, however you may as many healers and therapists tend to do, and that is offer more than one particular therapy. It can get expensive being accredited by all these outside boards, especially if you want worldwide coverage. With the International Practitioners of Holistic Medicine you can be covered no matter what therapy or course you offer. As they cover a vast range of therapies this eliminates the need to join other accreditation boards at a costly expense to you which you then have to pass on to your clients or students. For a full list therapies covered by iphm see “Therapies Covered by IPHM” Even if you don’t find your particular niche listed here there is still an excellent chance that they will cover your particular type of healing modality providing you specialise in a subject involving natural health.
Becoming accredited can be costly and many charge hundreds of pounds just to be on their list of recognised therapists and course providers. Not so with the International practitioners of holistic therapies. When you choose a board that is run independently from any college or awarding then they quite often will accept appropriately qualified therapists equally and fairly. The IPHM exist to maintain Standards and support holistic practitioners and course providers to offer the best service they can at an affordable level.
Insurance for Practitioners
Again this can run into hundreds of pounds a year just to get the necessary insurance, in fact many insurance providers will not cover you if you have only studied an online course for instance. Again this is not so with IPHM. Whether you have studied your therapy online, workshop or one to one tuition IPHM will accept all credible therapists and course providers. You do not need to be a member of iphm to obtain the necessary insurance however members do receive a discount, but if you would like a free quote for insurance cover then visit Insurance cover for practitioners.
