The National Federation of Spiritual Healers (NFSH) was created in 1954 and is the largest professional organisation in the UK, with affiliated Healing organisations worldwide. The NFSH was founded on the initiative of one John Britnell. Nationally renowned Healer, Harry Edwards, was recorded as Member No 1 and the Charity’s offices were based at his home at Burrows Lea , near Guildford.
Harry Edwards was to remain President of NFSH until his death in 1976. His vision for the future was that of doctors and Healers working alongside each other, and for Healers to be available across the country. In 2009 it was decided to use The Healing Trust as the working name of NFSH.
