By law, there are specific titles which are referred to as ‘protected titles’. This means that only those people who are registered or endorsed in a particular profession can use the titles associated with that profession. This may require the practitioner to obtain Licensing and or Registrations required by a regulatory authority. Protected titles can include but are not limited to complementary therapy professions such as: Traditional Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture, Naturopathy, Kinesiology, Homeopathy, Herbal Medicine, Massage, Art Therapy, Dietician, Psychotherapy, and Counselling.  For practitioners who do not possess the required registration or endorsements for a ‘protected title’ profession, using particular symbols, words or descriptions which allude to this may be illegal. In Australia, this is referred to as ‘holding out.’  Protected titles vary by country, and in some cases by state. For example, each state in Canada and the United States have their own specific occupational regulations. HERE is a list of protected titles in Australia.
