The Confederation of Registered Essence Practitioners (COREP) serves as a knowledge base for the practice of essence therapy - the systematic and holistic use of flower and/or vibrational essences to improve mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.
COREP is a collaborative venture between the two main professional bodies in the UK that are involved with essence therapy: the Bach Centre, and the British Flower & Vibrational Essences Association (BFVEA).
COREP is recognised by the General Regulatory Council for Complementary Therapists (GRCCT) as the UK Lead Body and Professional Council for essence therapy.
Its aims are:
To act as a professional body for persons engaged in the practice of essence therapy
To support the involvement of essence practitioners in programmes of continuing professional development
To co-operate with national regulators on behalf of essence practitioners to confirm and maintain standards of safe, professional conduct within the therapy
To enable persons engaged in the practice of essence therapy, who have each agreed to abide by the Confederation’s Code of Ethics and Practice, the opportunity of listing on a recognised National Register
To set guidelines for minimum content for essence practitioner training courses
To support efforts towards establishing National Occupational Standards (NOS) in essence therapy
To maintain the recognised Code of Ethics and Conduct of the Confederation of Registered Essence Practitioners and apply disciplinary procedures for anyone breaking the Code
To act as a consultative body for essence therapy
Eligible practitioners already listed on the Bach Centre and or BFVEA registers may apply for listing on the GRCCT National Register and a National Registration Number that can be quickly validated by commissioners of services or by the public.
