What is the FHT Ambassador Programme?
It is our mission to promote the highest standards in professional practice, promoting the FHT's mark of quality to therapists, healthcare providers and the public.
We do this nationally in a number of ways, including: advertising in print and online; lobbying parliament and key government stakeholders; and working closely with decision makers within health and social care, employment and education.
We now seek to raise awareness on a regional level through the FHT Ambassador Programme. It sees specially appointed, local FHT Ambassadors visiting your college, whenever you require a talk for your therapy students throughout the academic year.
What are the benefits of an Ambassador visit?
The programme puts a trusted, trained FHT representative in your classroom, giving your students valuable information about regulating bodies, insurance and all the valuable support the FHT has to offer every step of their therapy career.
Students will be awarded 2 CPD points for attending the talk and will be given a certificate for their portfolio. If they are training in Beauty and Hairdressing, it will also count towards the business units on their course.
Maria's professionalism and expertise was second to none, and we were inspired by her talk and subsequent Q&A session"

Ali became involved with complementary therapies back in 1992. She had been suffering with eczema on her hands for 14 years and using steroid creams as her only comfort. Tea Tree was recommended in a hand cream which she used some what sceptically and was surprised to find that it cleared in just three months!
From then on Ali became passionate about complementary therapies and would read anything she could find on the subject.
She then trained on a two-year course at Northbrook College for a Diploma in Holistic Therapies and has carried on training while setting up and running her own business, Ali's Holistic Hands.
She has been improving on her knowledge since starting out in 1992, and has experience with running her own holistic therapy business since 2000.
Carole has been a qualified aromatherapist since 2002. Not only is she a FHT Ambassador, but she also spends her time running a FHT Local Support Group in Wrexham.
She works on a freelance basis and visits clients who have difficulty travelling to and from appointments, making sure to support and work with them throughout their whole life journey.
Carole has post-graduate training in Aromatherapy to provide massage during pregnancy and further training to provide massage for clients and carers dealing with a cancer diagnosis.
She is based at Clinics on the Llyn Peninsula and at Estyn Wellbeing in Wrexham.
Judith is one of the vice presidents of the FHT and shares her knowledge by encouraging and supporting the FHT’s Association of Therapy Lecturers (ATL). She completed her first qualification in Hair and Beauty in the 1980’s and went on to open her own salon.
Judith has extensive experience in teaching in further and higher education and during her time teaching she expanded her own knowledge, gaining an extensive list of qualifications.
Her passion for Reiki centres on most of her freelance work but she has taught many therapies, including different types of massage, aromatherapy and reflexology both in the UK and abroad.
Judith’s enthusiasm for alternative therapies also extends to Chinese feng shui, where she has worked with various experts prior to developing her own accredited short courses.
Wendy is dedicated to helping others to have their best life. She loves being a holistic therapist and has been running her own business since 1982 when she trained in London as a beauty therapist. She went on to train as an exercise teacher, life coach, NLP Master and learned hypnotherapy and TBP meridian therapies.
These days, most of her work is doing beauty treatments and transformational life coaching.
She is also a coordinator for the Waterlooville FHT Local Support Group with her sister Angela and is looking to inspire others to have their dream job with the professional support of the FHT .
Angela started her journey in holistic therapy in 1995 having qualified as a BHS AI riding instructor. She was very interested in aromatherapy but completed a qualification in body massage first. She enjoyed it so much she went on to qualify in sports massage, aromatherapy, reflexology, sports therapy and remedial massage, sugaring, hot stone massage and Indian head massage. She is also a Y.M.C.A. exercise to music teacher.
Angela also worked for 11 years as a therapist and head receptionist at a spa hotel where she trained in Decleor, Carita, Elimis, Bare Minerals, Mii and Jessica products as well as organising leisure spa days. Having taken a break while recovering from breast cancer, she is currently training in holistic whole energy body balance for animals and humans and hope to use her extensive knowledge to treat both human and animals alike.
