About The NFSH (NZ)


The NFSH is a national non-denominational healing organisation for spiritual healers in New Zealand, and is a registered charity. The word “Spiritual” in its name refers to the acknowledged Universal/Cosmic Source of the Healing Energies and to that responsive element in Man seen by healers as comprised of body, mind and spirit.

Through its Constitution the NFSH is not aligned with spiritualism or any religion, ‘-ism’ or ‘-ology’. We accept into membership all those, irrespective of personal religious persuasion, who wish to help themselves and their fellow Man through spiritual healing and/or expand their knowledge of this natural complementary Healing Therapy modality.

The NFSH is internationally recognised, our training program is comprehensive and internationally recognised, our healers provide a nationwide support network, and all members respect our Code of Conduct. The NFSH is a professional organisation advancing the cause of spiritual healing in the community.

In the United Kingdom

Spiritual healing is officially listed as a therapy within the National Health Service. Doctors are permitted by the General Medical Council to refer their patients for spiritual healing, healers can work alongside doctors in hospitals and surgeries, and healers may attend hospital patients who request their services.


The NFSH (UK) was originally founded in the UK in 1955. Now renamed The Healing Trust. The NFSH in NZ was founded in September 1996 and is a registered charity and Incorporated Society. Our headquarters share premises with the Holistic Healing Centre in Thames. The office is open during normal working hours, and there is a telephone message recording service out of hours.

The NFSH is affiliated with the NFSH (UK), HNI (Healer Network International) and The NZ Charter of Health Practitioners Inc.

What the NFSH (NZ) Inc. does

Among its aims and activities, the NFSH exists to:

Help bring spiritual healing to the public as a mainstream Natural Therapy, complementary to all other medicines and therapies.

Gain recognition and acceptance by the Medical Profession and the publicly funded NZ Health Care Services (as occurs in the UK and is being considered in many other countries).

Help both healers and patients to move forward positively along their pathways in life.

Help further the development of the healer through self-awareness Healing Courses, and so create a professional healing service for the public.

Provide a national Healer Referral Service to the public. We maintain a Register of locally available healers at our headquarters. We regularly handle requests for healing by telephone, letter and email from sufferers and friends from around the country.
We connect healers with healers, and healers with patients, both nationally and internationally.

In general, to give public service, to help all people — wherever and whenever needed.

Identify potential healers, encourage them, and accelerate and fine-tune their development as healers.

Act as a focal point to which aspiring healers may turn for advice and training. The training courses support the progress of newcomers to healing, as well as expand the knowledge and expertise of established healers.

Conduct Distant Healing sessions for patients and other people in need, internationally. Individual NFSH members also offer distant healing in their own time.
