Holistic Health Practitioner

Vicky Rayson is our Holistic Health Practitioner. She specialises in working with clients to manage the emotional impact of living with a health condition.


As a qualified counsellor and with 20 years of experience working in the health and rehabilitation field, Vicky is very aware of the impact that having a long-term condition can have on you and your family. Often a diagnosis can be sudden and life-changing. In other circumstances, there’s a general sense of something not being ok, but you don’t have any answers. Both can affect you not only physically, but emotionally.

Vicky previously worked within the NHS and has had many conversations with people in a similar situation to yourselves, and supported many individuals along the way.

A Holistic Health Session

Within holistic health sessions, Vicky uses her extensive knowledge and experience in health and wellbeing to help you to explore how you are currently coping.  She can then discuss together with you strategies that may help. For example, you might discuss anxiety management, pacing, breathing techniques and working with health professionals. Additionally, she’ll help you to understand other techniques and tools to help you manage your condition. 

This is a space for you to ask questions about how your condition is affecting you both physically and emotionally. If it will be beneficial to you, Vicky can provide you with a home exercise programme suitable for your condition.

At Appetite for Wellbeing, our focus is your health and quality of life. Your work with Vicky will be educational as you will learn more about the physiological changes and ways you can regain some control.
