What's this about?
Are you a caring person? Do you get on well with a range of people? Are you interested in improving people’s health and well-being?
This is a growing area of employment as people live longer and take an interest in their diet and lifestyle, work- life balance, fitness and mental and physical health.
Most people who work in this area are self-employed although some people are employed by the NHS.
There are many types of therapy that you could become involved in such as psychological therapies and counselling, art therapy, music therapy, and drama therapy.
You could also be promoting wellness by offering acupuncture, massage and reflexology, osteopathy or sports therapy.
You could be teaching yoga, Pilates, Tai Chai or mindfulness or offer nutritional advice.
