I have always been interested in the Natural Health Sciences and was a practising Reiki Practitioner. Since I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2007, this had a profound impact on my life and what I wanted to do with it.

As I was left with Lymphoedema from the treatment, it was important to learn to deal with stress and this led me to seek out a course to help with this. The advertisement was in The Holland and Barrett Healthy magazine for the School of Natural Health Sciences and, once I investigated the prospectus,it was clear that the Stress and Relaxation courses were just what I wanted to do. I have successfully completed both courses and have used the skills and knowledge to become a Stress and Relaxation Therapist. After all this, I enrolled for the Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) course but I was unable to do much, as I was taken ill, so the course was transferred to my Husband.

I have decided to tackle another course which is Drug & Alcohol Counselling which will help with my voluntary work for a local organisation  who deal with Drug issues. I would highly recommend anyone who wants to take a course to go through the School of Natural Health Sciences as they are always very helpful and knowledgeable with what ever course you do.
