How to change career; an insight from chasing a career change to now coaching our therapists into the industry

The experience of changing career & completely retraining

My journey into the world of wellbeing and specifically becoming a holistic therapist began in 2012. I had over a decade of working in health and social management I needed some time out after becoming disillusioned with where my career was heading and meeting the demands of the role alongside being a single parent. 

I was looking for something that lit me up again and also gave me some working time flexibility. 

I chose the Cotswold Academy after meeting Chris and getting his passion for the industry and providing quality training, I felt the family vibe at the college straight away and have been fortunate enough to have been part of that family ever since. 

After qualifying I threw myself into building my therapy business studying further CPD courses and eventually specialising in working with individuals with additional needs such as autism and dementia which looking back doesn’t surprise me considering my background. 

What I wasn’t prepared for was mammoth learning journey of running my own business having never done it before. It challenged my mindset, technical skills and time management in ways I never imaged and sent me on a rollercoaster of highs of successes and lows of setbacks. 

I was lucky enough along that journey to be asked by the academy to become a tutor supporting budding holistic therapists in becoming qualified and developing some of their CPD training. 

I truly believe in the wellbeing industry and the amazing therapists that are part of it. The industry as a whole is growing and there appears to be no sign of it slowing down, there are more people than ever looking for ways to take responsibility of their own personal wellbeing and wanting reputable therapists to support them with this. 

Kickstart your Therapy Business

It’s also an opportunity to explore ideas and ask questions from someone who has been there been there and gets exactly how you’re feeling about building a profitable and sustainable therapy business. 

I really look forward to seeing you at the Cotswold Academy soon.
