Goodbye The Wellbeing Centre..
.. hello Newbury Wellbeing!
It was with a heavy heart that I closed the doors on The Wellbeing Centre for the last time at the end of 2018. For almost 7 years I’d been focused on creating a hub of wellbeing; a nurturing environment for the local community to access a variety of complementary therapies and a supportive workplace for independent practitioners.
However, the ironic truth was that running The Wellbeing Centre was taking an increasingly heavy toll on my personal wellbeing. Additionally, I was studying with the Institute of Integrative Nutrition towards being a Health Coach and knew that I wanted to have more time to focus on this going forwards.
I made plans for someone else to take over The Wellbeing Centre. With the right person at the helm, I felt the centre could continue to grow as a thriving hub of therapies, support and inspiration for the local community.
Apparently the universe had other ideas! It turned out we were no longer able to continue to use the premises in Pound Street (its on the market) and I eventually decided that I would simply have to close the business. Sometimes we have to make big changes in order to thrive and for me that involved letting go of the centre.
I will always look back on my time at The Wellbeing Centre with pleasure, pride and gratitude. It has meant so much to so many people and has taught me a great many things along the way as well as offering me the opportunity to get to know and love some wonderful people, both therapists and clients.
The Wellbeing Centre may have closed but its spirit lives on. I’m now in the process of transforming our website and social media pages to become the go-to place for all thatâ€™s good for you in the local area. Where The Wellbeing Centre has ended, Newbury Wellbeing begins!
The aim is to provide a one-stop for updates on whatâ€™s available in the field of complementary therapies and whatâ€™s on with a calendar of local wellbeing classes, courses and events such as yoga, mindfulness and much more..
My passion and goal is to increase people’s awareness of the benefit of complementary therapies and to â€‹help people access what’s available where in Newbury and the surrounding areas.
I’ll be sending out weekly e-newsletters packed with updates about whatâ€™s available in the local area (not just Newbury but spreading out to Thatcham, Hungerford and beyond) plus wellbeing tips for mind, body and soul. Think Goop, but more realistic.. certainly more local and affordable!
