3rd June, 1st July

Hi there,

Thank you to everyone who has supported our meetings and welcome to all who have requested to join our group.

Regulation of therapies is something that a lot of therapists talk about and some therapists do something about. As some of you know, I am involved with the Reiki Regulatory Working Group on behalf of another organisation, while Edith Maskell does a fantastic job on the RRWG as well as other regulatory bodies for Embody. There is also the idea put forward for a single regulatory body for ALL complementary therapies. Edith has recently sent us co-ordinators the following:

"For the past 10 years or more regulation has been following a single therapy route, ie there would be a register for each therapy. Clearly this would be a financial nightmare for multi disciplined therapists.

"What is now being suggested is a Federal Structure (which we have been fighting for all along). This means that there would be one main register.

"The consultation document is there so that anybody who has an interest in complementary and alternative medicine can have their say and their views will be considered.

"I would strongly encourage all those attending your meetings to go and have a look at the document and take this opportunity to fight for the right to work as a multi disciplined practitioner. This is our opportunity to have our say. If we don't - the decision will be made for us by the powers that be and the outcome might not be the one we want!"

With this in mind, our next meeting is about regulation. I will be talking about regulation of the various therapies, the general insights into the process that I have gained by working on the RRWG, and what you can do to have your say about the regulation of any of your therapies.

That's great, see you then!

The 1st July day was my company's Allergy Testing and EFT Detox day planned 6 months ago, and then I added the Group meeting as it seemed to make sense. Then I added a training hour for my therapists since rent is very expensive and I have to cram in as many things as possible in the rented space for the day. Now I found out about Pride last week, and it's too late to change! I'm gutted but hope to catch the last hour of it. At least I'll see all you lovely people :-) and get detoxed too that day.
