Lately I have been thinking a lot about where I want to go and what I want to do with myself once I have completed my diploma next June… usually these thoughts come knocking a long with the insomnia and I have come to some conclusions… Money isn’t the be all and end all. Whaaaat? I hear you say… ok, let me explain.
I started my course in Complementary Therapies in June and I’ve always known for a while that this would be for me as I like the holistic approach to life, it ties in with previous course I did in counselling, my constant quest of eating clean (going through a period of eating like a horse), and my love for exercise (also on back burner but getting on wagon today). So I have the tools and the means but its putting it all together The pieces of the puzzle are coming together but it’s a lot of hard work.
So here is my plan… We purchase the summer house within the next month, it goes up and gets decorated, I see clients there and I slowly pick up classes in business studies to create the service that I feel I want to deliver. I want to be able to work from home and work around the kids and family life.
The important part: Client base. Most people are happy to work in a salon etc and that’s great but I want to mainly work with people who are/have experiencing PND/Pre natal /post natal anxiety/PTSD and anxiety. I want to be able to provide an afford able service to people who really do need it. Some may even get a free experience based on their circumstances. The aim is to help in their healing process but not to have the anxiety of not being able to afford the treatments. I know what the oils can do, I had treatments when I was going through my journey and it just adds to any other type of therapy that someone is getting. Some people may think that it is silly to want to give out free treatments or charge for services but I see it differently. The power of touch is an amazing healing quality and if it helps people, I couldn’t care less about profit.
I will also be taking on all types of different clients but this is my main focus as will hopefully being able to work in a hospice or with people nearing end of life as I believe it to be a privilege to be with someone when they die. Strange to some but I wouldn’t agree.
This is where I am just now in life and study, a few things have been thrown into the mix but I’m getting there, with lots of support from friends and family.. I wish I had done this sooner but things happen in life for reasons and I wasn’t meant to do this until now. Its been a test of strength and think so far, I am passing! I love what I am going although there have been days where I could throw the covers over my head and stay in bed but I’m looking towards the future.
If anyone is reading this and is currently going through PND etc, please contact me for a free session, I have insurance and I will travel. There are some fantastic services out there, use them, me and use social media. It was the through twitter that I got most help and tapped into things like PND hour with the lovely Rosey, midwife to mum and so many other very supportive people. You don’t have to go through this alone. My ear is always there as well as a shoulder for support.
