Rachel Scriven started her publishing career in 1993, working for an International business to business publishing company. She then set up Haywood Publishing in 1998 and successfully launched two trade directories for the Housewares and Flooring Industries. Both titles were sold by 2004 and then worked for the company who purchased her Housewares directory until October 2005.
It was at this point that her career took a change in direction, with a passion for health and nutrition she briefly worked and studied at the College of Naturopathic Medicine where she gained an insight into the fascinating world of Complementary Therapies. Shortly afterwards she made the decision to launch Healing Within, offering weightloss and nutritional advice for both sports and general wellbeing. Using her publishing skills and knowledge she produced a monthly newsletter which was emailed nationally and posted in her local area. Due to it's success she developed the concept even further with the launch of ‘Wellbeing Magazine' in 2006. Rachel also organised wellbeing events for the general public and employers as part of their 'Wellbeing in the Workplace' campaign.
