Eliana’s London Road will be open Monday March 7th, offering a unique service.

While relaxing, nail technicians will encourage customers talk about their mental health.

Safwan Zulfukar is a Southampton native and a former counsellor at the local YMCA branch.

“We are offering one-to-one services while the clients are getting their nails done,” said the 27-year-old, who lives in the city centre.

“Maybe the customer will have underlying mental health issues, maybe they wish to speak with the person doing their nails – if they’ve got any issues in the past, or they’re dealing with things now.

“I believe a lot of businesses are not touching upon anything to do with mental health, and it’s a big thing, but it’s just not looked upon and people struggle.

“So I want to offer a place that is friendly where you can come and speak to someone and go from there.”

Mr Zulfukar holds a law degree at the University of Winchester and hopes that his experience in helping people with mental illness will help him to build a successful business.

“I’ve chosen to do this as a new project, something that is a new topic and hasn’t really been done before,” he continued.

“I haven’t seen any beauty businesses, an industry which can often set standards high and hurt mental health, do this kind of thing.”

45 London Road is part of the former Natwest Bank. It has since been split into smaller units.

Although there was talk in 2018 that the building could be converted to flats like those shown above, no planning application was ever filed.
