The Need for Regulation
The number of schools and organisations offering healer training in the UK as well as that of individuals calling themselves healers and practising under this title is growing rapidly. In order to safeguard
a high quality of training,
a high standard of practice, and
the safety and wellbeing of the public,
UK Healers Regulatory Body (or simply: UK Healers) was set up, a grouping of healing organisations that formulates common Basic Standards of Good Practice. Fully qualified Spiritual Healers who have trained with a school or organisation that is part of UK Healers
will have completed a 2-year training period
will have passed a formal Assessment
will be bound by a professional Code of Conduct
Such Healers, and especially those who go on to practice Spiritual Healing, will normally stay members of a healing organisation, often the one they trained with. This is imporant insofar as: "Membership of an organisation forming part of UK Healers must be regarded as a guarantee to patients/clients, the medical profession and the Government of the healer's integrity, sincerety and ability." (BAHA Code of Conduct)
There is nothing to say that healers who are not members of such a healing organisation aren't competent, caring practitioners. However, regulated training and a Code of Conduct go a long way in assuring clients and prospective trainee healers alike that they will receive a service of the highest possible quality and standard. So when looking for a Spiritual Healer, it is worth checking whether they are a member of an organisation that is part of UK Healers.
Healers one should be extremely cautious of are any who
No responsible, trustworthy Spiritual Healer will do either of these things, on the contrary: It is the Healer's duty to advise you that you should consult a physician if you have any health concerns. Also, Healers should always make clear from the outset which benefits you can expect from healing. A definite cure is not one of them. Nobody can promise a cure, not even medical doctors. Also, no Healer should ever advise you to discontinue therapies or medication prescribed by your doctor or contradict your doctor's advice. To do so is unprofessional and irresponsible in the extreme.
Another thing a Spiritual Healer should never do is ask the client to remove any items of clothing. Of course, taking off outer garments like heavy coats or hats will help make the client more comfortable and enable the Healer to work, for example, on the head. However, normal clothing will not inhibit the flow of the healing energies so there is never any need for the client to disrobe.
Should you be interested in learning more about healer training and perhaps becoming a Spiritual Healer yourself, here you will find a list of organisations that are part UK Healers Self Regulatory Body. Many of these will offer healer training in your area - enquire directly with the respective organisation(s).
The same is advised should you be looking for introductory courses about Spiritual Healing or perhaps a healing circle you can join, even if you would just like to try and see whether Spiritual Healing is for you.
