Who we are

The Confederation of Healing Organisations (CHO) is the leading registered charity (number 1119533) advancing the practice of Healing, as well as a company limited by guarantee (number 05712128).

Our chief executive, Sue Knight, is an experienced organisational leader as well as a long time healing practitioner. She works alongside Jane Butterworth who chairs the CHO Board of Trustees, all of which are also directors of the company.

The trustees, some of whom are healers and some lay, have been selected to help the CHO promote the benefits of Healing as a recognised complementary therapy by providing education, research and information to a wider audience of healing and healthcare practitioners and society as a whole. They do this by bringing a diverse skill set to the Board and include a former financial planning advisor, directors of healing colleges (human and animal healing), two former SRNs, a research fellow and a healthcare executive.
