Register Of Practitioners
- have trained to certain agreed standards
- abide by a professional code of ethics
- be fully insured
- undertake regular professional training
The CNHC also deals with complaints, advertising standards and publicity, not just for the Alexander Technique but for a whole range of alternative therapies.
No Legal Requirements
Why have a register at all? Because anyone can call themselves an Alexander Technique teacher. Legally. No experience, training or qualifications are required.
Most reputable teachers are fully trained, and belong to one of the main Alexander Technique organisations (see below). However, the CNHC register provides an independent, formal layer of security and protection.
ITM – Interactive Teaching Method of the Alexander Technique(*)
STAT – Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique
PAAT – Professional Association of Alexander Teachers
ATI – Alexander Technique International
