Return to Practice Looking to return to practice? Sometimes after training for a career in nutritional therapy, life gets in the way. Perhaps you didn’t get started in practice, or maybe you put it on hold while dealing with other priorities. For qualified nutritional therapists who have been out of practice for three years or more, we offer courses as a pathway to registration/re-registration with CNHC and full membership of BANT (MBANT). For those out of practice for less than three years, please refer to the BANT membership website for the BANT RTP process.

Your student care team will observe in real time your clinical consultation online. Your training clinic supervisor is there to guide and encourage you over the course of the client appointment session. You will take them through your consultation and initial thoughts on the case and client care plan. The supervisor will observe and make notes throughout the consultation.
