Anila Ahmad


For many years I have been very passionate and interested in complementary & Holistic Therapies. I decided to qualify as a therapist. I studied full time courses in this subject for 3 years and I am still continuing to persue and learn more about complementary therapies. I have a variety of qualifications from VTCT and other professional bodies, which allow me to work as a fully qualified therapist. I enjoy giving therapies, and for me there is nothing more rewarding than having a career which allows me to do this.

As part of my holistic therapy training courses I had opportunities to work in Palliative Care Environments (Spinal Injury and Cancer Care), Glasgow City Council HR department, and local councils offering Stress Management and Therapies to staff and carers. I also did freelance therapies; fundraising & volunteered with the ‘Tak Tent' Cancer Care charity at Gartnavel Hospital. I believe it's important to gain experience, as it allowed me to become inspired and learn more about healing therapies: I am also a trained Crystal therapist and Reiki practitioner at master level.

I have been a practicing therapist for several years at Neal's Yard Remedies, I enjoy working here as every therapist in the clinic is professional, kind and caring with outstanding reputations. All therapists here are knowledgeable and embrace the Holistic approach while practicing
