Yes – we am fully insured to practice with Hiscox Professional Indemnity Insurance
Victoria is a member of the The Federation of Nutritional Therapy Practitioners and The International Association of Hypnotherapists and NLP Practitioners.
Some people ask why she am not registered with BANT or other Nutritional Association within the UK. The reasons are many – but simply put, her qualifications are mainly from American trainings and extensive, self-directed study. She is not a graduate from one of the UK-based nutritional programs, she is not a doctor and she does not choose to practice only within the remit of the nutritional organisations mentioned above. The FNTP has its guidelines – which are stringent but less so than BANT – and she adheres to both their guidelines and codes of professional good conduct.
Victoria is still a member of the ADAPT Academy within the Kresser Institute and has added to her training by studying Metabolic Analysis and Functional Biochemistry independently, as well as continuing her clinical diagnostic education in complex digestive disorders (including SIBO), genetics and nutrigenomics, hormone function and metabolism, detoxification protocols and herbalism.
All of this means that whilst Victoria carries lots of certifications – and over a decade of experience and education – she does not actually meet the more modern criteria for registration with certain institutions. Instead, she actively maintains any “CPD” herself – both for her own interest and out of a fascination with healthcare, and a desire to continually offer the best and most up-to-date treatments possible to her clients.
