Who We Are
We are After the-Storm, your go to place for finding the right services and support you need to help you through all the challenges and life lessons that might come your way.
We are about CONNECTION:
- Connecting Individuals to services and resources that can support them through times of growth, difficulty or personal change.
- Providing a platform for Service Providers to connect with the individuals they are looking to support.
- Through engaging and informative content we bring people to our site to share in the insight, gain the motivation, inspiration and support they need.
So many people continue on in isolation when a life changing event happens, they are unsure of where to turn, what help is credible and whether they can trust the information found on the internet. They might not even know that there is support available for what they are experiencing. There are people who really want to change the circumstances they find themselves in and want to understand the best way to go about it, whether a change in career, lifestyle or behaviours.

There have been many events that have led to the creation of After the Storm, but COVID 19 was the catalyst that brought it to life. Verity and Nicola share some insight into why After the Storm means so much to them
After the Storm founder, Verity Hart, shares her story as to why she decided to form this unique business:
After the Storm is a product of my personal experience throughout my life, but was triggered during lockdown, when I realised the vast scale of the impact on people in so many different aspects of their life. I could see the rising alcohol intake, the panic and the confusion and knew that now was the right time to bring After the Storm together. After the Storm is your go to place for finding the right services and support to help you through personal change and all that life can throw at us. Whether it's mental health and wellbeing, overcoming loss of a loved one or wanting to seek help to get fitter, After The Storm cuts through the noise giving you access to credible services quickly.
Hi! I’m Nicola. A vintage loving, victory roll enthusiast with a background in psychology. I currently work as Programme Manager for a Talent Outsourcer by day, and as a co-founder of After The Storm by night.

We have seen and verified any qualifications that an individual / organisation says they have obtained.
We will have verified any registered Charities or Limited Companies with the Charity Commission and Companies House to ensure credibility.
We ask for a minimum of 3 client testimonials or references.
