Holly Ramsay, 21, has shared that she spent months in private rehab hospital The Nightingale after suffering anxiety, PTSD and depression. The daughter of celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay explained that she had to drop out of studying fashion design at university when she began to feel “very affected” by her mental health.
I didn’t tell anyone about it afterwards
Speaking on her new podcast 21 & Over, Holly explained that she enrolled in fashion design at university, saying: “I loved it. It was a very intense course.
“But by the second half of the first year I was being affected by my PTSD and I had no idea that this was happening.
“I was going out a lot, I was missing class because I’d been out.
“I was going clubbing way too much I wasn’t enjoying myself at all. I was struggling a lot more, but I didn’t notice because I would think it was just a hangover or a lot of work.”
Holly dropped out of Ravensbourne University after one year and was admitted as an inpatient to the Nightingale Hospital in Marylebone.
She continued: “Since then, I have been in therapy up to three times a week. I now have these diagnoses that I carry around with me.
“It’s confusing and I’m trying to take control of my narrative and use that to make something good.”
Of her diagnosis, Holly said: ‘It was like a huge weight was taken off, and it was something I could explain why I was acting like that.”
Holly is the second eldest of Gordon and Tana’s children along with her twin brother Jack.
She explained that two sexual assaults contributed to her PTSD.
Holly revealed: “The PTSD was a result of two sexual assaults when I was 18.
“I didn’t tell anyone about it until a year afterwards. I just buried it in a box in the back of my mind and just tried to get on with everything as best I could.”

Holly said she hadn’t realised that you could suffer from PTSD after a sexual assault.
She thought that it was usually felt by those who had “been in the army or violent situations”.
She then said that her family, including her dad Gordon, 54, mum Tana, 46, her twin Jack, sisters Megan, 23, and Tilly, 19, and youngest brother Oscar, two had provided her with “the greatest unconditional support”.
Speaking on her mental health battle, Holly said: “it’s brought me closer to them in many ways”.
The 21-year-old said: “I’ve lost friends. It’s definitely a journey. But I hope that by speaking out I can help other people.”
As well as launching her podcast, Holly began a course with the Condé Nast College of Fashion and Design last year.
She has also helped run social media for her father’s restaurants.
Sharing the podcast episode to Instagram, Holly wrote: “Wow. I hope by listening, we can continue to break the stigma surrounding our mental health.
“Asking for help is not only the bravest thing you can do, but it is also your first step to reaching a happier & healthier you.”
