Welcome to the April 2018 edition of newsupdate

Michael Watson, CNHC Chair
Spring is now in full swing, and I hope you all had a wonderful Easter break over the long weekend. Clocks have moved forward, and we can look ahead to even more daylight as summer approaches.
At CNHC we have kept ourselves busy this month with numerous activities to promote public awareness and integration. CNHC Chief Executive, Margaret Coats, attended a meeting with the Royal Society for Public Health and the Professional Standards Authority, in addition to the meeting of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Integrated Healthcare in March. CNHC’s presence at these meetings ensures that the voice of complementary health practitioners is heard at government level.
This month we have also confirmed several events throughout 2018 at which CNHC will be exhibiting, including those with The King’s Fund and The Royal Society of Medicine. We hope these events will present opportunities for CNHC to meet and engage with delegates to discuss complementary healthcare integration.

In other exciting news, we have opened the CNHC register to Colon Hydrotherapy. Core curriculum for this new category is now up and live on our website here. Many thanks to the Colon Hydrotherapy PSB members and CNHC staff involved for all their work to make this happen.
If you are interested in becoming a PSB member, don’t forget the election process for Hypnotherapy and Healing begins this month.

Best Wishes, Michael


Kool to be Kind Initiative in Primary Schools


The Kool to be Kind initiative was designed to help children learn coping strategies if they got angry or frustrated at home or at school. Janice Barclay, CNHC registered Hypnotherapist, was contacted by Moray Firth Radio on behalf of their charity Cash for Kids to participate in this initiative.

The initiative started by identifying 3 local primary schools who were willing and eager to participate. They visited the children for up to a full day and worked with them in a group setting in their classrooms. Janice engaged with the children by asking them what they would do to be kind to someone, and while answering they got to cuddle a Care Bear. She then taught them about hypnotic anchors, so that if they ever felt insecure all they needed to do was take a deep breath and blow out their frustrations, and the lovely feeling of calm would return to them.

The sessions were a great success and many positive responses were received from the children and their teachers. Janice’s registration with CNHC gave confidence to the charity and teachers for these initiatives, and she very much looks forward to working on more activities like these for her community. You can read the full blog from Janice on our website here


New to the CNHC register – Colon Hydrotherapyoga

We are pleased to announce that a new discipline has been added to our register, and the core curriculum has now been published for Colon Hydrotherapy. All current registered CNHC Naturopaths who applied through the Association and Register of Colon Hydrotherapists (ARCH) have already been moved to this category, and you will have received communication from CNHC about this. If you are interested in adding Colon Hydrotherapy to your CNHC registration, visit our website here for more information and instructions on how to add another discipline.


GDPR Update


The deadline for the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) is fast approaching on 25 May. CNHC has been in touch with registrants by email to provide the latest updates from the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) regarding these new regulations.

This short checklist for small organisations on the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) website will help you comply with the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) as well as the Data Protection Act (the Act): How to comply checklist. Not all of the additional guidance that’s listed underneath the checklist will apply to you, but the Electronic Mail Marketing link, will be relevant if you text or email clients.

Random Sampling 2018

This year’s sampling will begin on Monday 7th May 2018 and the deadline to return documents will be Monday 4th June 2018.

If you are selected, you will be contacted by email and post to send us your completed CPD log and insurance certificate. If you need to update your contact details, you can do so by logging into MYCNHC. Please note that you are not required to send these documents unless you are notified that you have been selected as part of the random sample.
