Local branches

We have 20 local branches across the UK - see the map below for a visual indication of their locations.

Our local volunteer-run branches run regular events which

  • enable practitioners to access low-cost, high quality training locally
  • are a great way to network with other practitioners in your area
  • are open to both members and non-members (they are cheaper for members)

See a full list of branch events.

If you'd like to set up a new branch, please contact us and we'd be happy to help you get started.  We can recommend speakers and give you administrative support, if you can drum up support from local practitioners and arrange the venues. There's further guidance provided in our branch officers' handbook
