Do you attend a group that supports you to feel less isolated as a self-employed therapist?
Perhaps your local FHT Coordinator organises outstanding meetings that encourage you to regularly attend?
Has your FHT Coordinator gone the extra mile to bring in industry experts to speak to your group?
Or have they organised inspiring activities that have supported you throughout the pandemic?
The pandemic made face-to-face meetings extremely difficult, maybe they went the extra mile to create that sense of community and camaraderie with virtual meetings.
Entries open on 23 April and close on 30 June.
Last year’s winner for FHT Local Support Coordinator of the Year was Tim Djossou:
Tim created the South Manchester local group in 2017 and has modestly excelled in his role ever since. Each year, he organises a calendar of events with a wide variety of topics to support his local therapist community. Some of the subjects previously covered at Tim’s group meetings include sports injuries, aromatherapy, Chinese medicine and crystal therapy – clearly showing his dedication to educate and support therapists, whatever their specialism or area of interest. During lockdown, he organised a series of virtual meetings with a special focus on topics that would help members, and non-members, during the difficult period. He put together a very successful three-part series on mental health and nutrition, which was very well attended and allowed group members the chance to explore and understand the connection. For many, Tim’s sessions are something inclusive to look forward to at a time when keeping in touch has been so important.
