- Insurance to practice.
- Accreditation by an Accrediting Body.
- Accredited Register status.
- His / her own Clinical Supervisor, who oversees their practice.

The Natural Health Centre:
There are several car parks in Woodbridge - probably the most convenient one is the Turban Centre / Budgens car park.
From the Turban Centre car park, walk towards the main street (the Thoroughfare) and turn left when you get to Boots.
Continue along the Thoroughfare, until you see the entrance to the Natural Health Centre on your left, between The Yorkshire Building Society and ‘CC’ - opposite The Cake Shop Bakery.
