The British Autogenic Society (BAS), is the professional and regulatory body for autogenic therapists in the UK. It was formed in 1984 as the British Association for Autogenic Training and Therapy, and became the BAS in 1999. The BAS is working to establish Autogenic Therapy as a widely-used form of treatment in the UK – available on recommendation from doctors, health centres, primary care centres and schools.
The British Autogenic Society has no political affiliations and does not discriminate against anyone on the basis of nationality, race, gender, sexual orientation, age, social class, disability, political, religious or spiritual persuasion or practice. The BAS promotes an Equal Opportunities and a Diversity Policy where every individual is recognised, respected and valued. All BAS members are required to adhere to the Codes of Ethics and Practice.
Dr Roger Neighbour OBE, MA, DSc, FRCGP, FRCP, FRACGP Past President of the Royal College of General Practitioners and author of standard GP training works.
The British Autogenic Society is led by a voluntary Board, whose officers have chosen to dedicate their time and energies to ensure autogenic therapists receive the support they need to continue practising AT, and that more people learn and gain from the benefits of this effective non-drug, self-help approach to reducing the symptoms of stress and other conditions.
