Good areas in which to retrain?

I'm looking at leaving my current workplace and retraining in something else. Basically I am being bullied out of my workplace by my ex. But also, maybe this is time to look at retraining and doing something more interesting and rewarding . .

Does anyone have any ideas about what would be the best option out of hairdressing, beauty therapy, or childcare? Or go back to university and retrain in a health profession? I am a bit limited because I have a small baby.

Ultimately I want to work for myself . .

Retrain in a job you want to do and have aptitude for
The jobs you've listed hairdressing/beauty are similar.childcare is unrelated
If you train in health what role?many health jobs have shift and weekend working. In health degree you do placements you need to think how that fit with kids

Don't pick a career unless you'll enjoy doing it.obvious,but true
What's your skills that you'd be self employed?satisfying if you've can do it,but hard work

Can you try get job in one ofthe area that interests you?dip toe in water see if you like it
