butterflyTo apply for membership, you first need to register with us online and submit your details. (A link to the registration process and form can be found at the bottom of this page, but please read the information below first...)

This involves creating a user profile for the website, and then later filling in your public profile (description, primary practice address, contact details, etc). You can also upload a logo image and a profile photo.

Before you begin, please check that you meet our criteria for membership. If you are unsure about this, please contact our membership secretary.

Please note that you can edit your profile details and add additional listings once your membership is approved, so initially you don't have to fill in the form in great detail - it is sufficient to fill in the required fields and then add the rest later. If you wish to submit full details in the first instance, we recommend that you allow plenty of time to fill in the form (i.e. don't try and do it in a hurry!). If you have any problems submitting the form, please contact us.

You can add more than one directory listing if you practice in different locations.

After submitting your listing(s) online, we will email you a payment link for submission of your membership application fee. The amount you pay depends on when in the year you join, as outlined on our 'Join Us' page.

You will also need to send in:

  • A copy of your membership certificate to your registered body.
  • A copy of your AFN-recommended course certificate.

Please send copies of your accreditation documents either by email (scanned) to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., or by post to the address below (copies only, not originals):
