Continuing Professional Development

Continuing education for therapists is now more important than ever with the emphasis on Continuing Professional Development (CPD) to help qualified therapists keep pace with the requirements of the self-regulatory bodies.

What is CPD?

The Health Professions Council (HPC) defines Continuing Professional Development (CPD) as:

‘‘A range of learning activities through which health professionals maintain and develop throughout their career to ensure that they retain their capacity to practice safely, effectively and legally within their evolving scope of practice”.

Body in Balance Therapies Training Centre agrees with the HPC that the intention of CPD for therapists is to improve the quality of their current or future work.

Therapists should be aiming to use their CPD to benefit the people who use their services, which may include clients, students or colleagues.

The majority of professional membership organizations expect a minimum of 10 CPD points per membership year.

Professional bodies

Mariette Lobo is on the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council Accredited Register

The Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) is the UK voluntary regulator for complementary therapists.

CNHC was set up with government support to protect the public by providing a UK voluntary register of complementary therapists.

CNHC's register has been approved as an Accredited Voluntary Register by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care.


Mariette Lobo is registered with the British Reflexology Association

The Bayly School of Reflexology is the official teaching body of The British Reflexology Association and was the first Reflexology training school to be established in Great Britain.

The Bayly Method of treatment is unique to The Bayly School in that the thumb is not flexed and extended in a caterpillar-like movement so the method is less stressful on the thumb (and finger) joints and the less rapid movement is considered to be more relaxing to the patient.
