Local Support Groups (LSGs) are a hub where therapists can meet and discuss issues affecting their work. The groups are a place where practitioners, students, and in many cases the public, can meet and hear from speakers on various topics within the fields of complementary health care, beauty and sports therapy. They are run by members of FHT, on a voluntary basis. Discover the Benefits of the FHT Therapist Network Leaflet
Our LSG network is always growing. If there isn't one in your area, why not consider starting one yourself?
Every meeting is different, but they usually begin with the group Coordinator distributing information from FHT about local and national events which may be of interest to members. This is a great opportunity for you to raise any queries you may have. If the Coordinators can't answer these personally, they will forward your query to FHT and then pass our response back to you. The next 90 or so minutes will often be a presentation from a guest speaker. Finally, there will be time for questions and finishing with a chance to network with your peers over drinks. The evenings always promise to be good value for money, informative, and most of all, fun.
Each group will be slightly different but all will offer a minimum of 5 meetings a year. They will normally be held on a fixed night of the week (or possibly during the day at a weekend) and a calendar of events is produced twice a year to let you know the events your group has planned.
