Student of Blackburne House: I Now Run My Own Business

Fiona, Complementary Therapy Student, Blackburne House

I completely changed my career direction two years ago following the death of my dad and brother. For over 25 years, I had worked in social housing but losing people so close to me so quickly made me rethink what I want to do with the rest of my life. I had always been interested in complementary therapies but never got around to doing anything about it. I already knew about the fantastic work Blackburne House had been doing for many years, advancing and supporting women into construction and health care, so I contacted them about their courses.

I applied and was accepted on the Level 3 Complementary Therapy course, and I have loved every minute of it. Blackburne House is a friendly, vibrant place to be, and a unique place where women from diverse backgrounds can come together to learn, improve their confidence, make friends and learn vital skills to excel in their chosen fields. I would encourage anyone to come here no matter what your background because you will be valued and supported on your journey by the staff and fellow students of Blackburne House. I now run my own therapy business, and although I could go somewhere else next year to complete my Level 4 Qualification, I have chosen to stay at Blackburne House.
