How do I become a practising therapist in The Natural Therapy Centre?

We are always on the look-out for potential new members of our centre. Our therapists work on a self-employed basis contracted to rent the rooms for an agreed number of hours per month. We run the centre on a community ethos where we have regular meetings and make decisions together as a team.

We require all our professional therapists to be qualified level 4 and above. As The Fold is in a semi rural location and so it helps if therapists have a 2 year professional practice experience in their own business so they are able to bring clients with them to the Therapy Centre.

If you are interested in joining the team please contact Cleo on 

How do I make an appointment at The Natural Therapy Centre?

Appointments and enquiries need to be made directly with the therapists themselves.
