This register serves as a check-list for anyone interested in receiving safe and quality assured Functional Imagery Training (FIT) as a patient/client. Please note that Functional Imagery Training practitioners might refer to themselves as Functional Imagery Training coaches in keeping with their overall business identity.
If they are not included on this register, but they are offering Functional Imagery Training, they are in fact offering a copy, not endorsed by the Functional Imagery Training developer team. Therefore, quality standards and safety of these services cannot be assured.
Functional Imagery Training Practitioners included here are those who have been trained by one or more of the original developers of Functional Imagery Training and have completed their Functional Imagery Training practitioner assessment and certification with us.
The original developers of Functional Imagery Training are:
Emeritus Prof David Kavanagh (QUT) https://staff.qut.edu.au/staff/david.kavanagh,
Prof Jackie Andrade (UoP) https://www.plymouth.ac.uk/staff/jackie-andrade

We have published our early Functional Imagery Training research in the name of ‘Functional Decision Making’ and then changed to Functional Imagery Training, for those of you who are searching the research literature for papers/studies on FIT.
Please assume that other variations on the name functional imagery training are attempts to sell a product without the training and quality assurance that we provide.
