My name is Rich. That’s me in the white t-shirt over there. My wife is Fi, the smiley person next to me (on this page and in life!)
We both have a passion for helping people. I suppose my desire to help others comes from times in my childhood when I felt quite helpless. As I got older I realised that helping others felt great so I wanted to do it more for others.
I help people through hypnotherapy and coaching and Fi helps people through the antenatal classes she runs.
We have been together since 2007 and in that time have been loving the path our lives have taken together. We are now in a position where we work together in a great building and share that space with other therapists, coaches and professionals who also love helping other people.
Our approach is to be very open and easy going about what we do. With the least number of rules in place and an approachable attitude it tends to make things go as smoothly as they can.
We decided that there had to be two essential elements of the wellness centre that would be our priority in driving forward the venture.
The wellness centre is a place where those wanting to increase their physical and/or mental health could find skilled professionals to help them achieve their goals.
The wellness centre focuses on providing health professionals with a mature, flexible and supportive location from which they could practice their own brand of therapy or support.
Through this website will will give the therapists and professionals who use the wellness centre a space where they can talk about themselves and what they do to help others.
This way you get the facts straight from the horse’s mouth and get to ask these professionals about the details of what is possible when you work with them.
This whole wellness centre venture was borne out of a frustration with the state of the private health and wellness offering in Sheffield. As therapists we were amazed to find that some wellness centres in Sheffield
- Charge extortionate room hire fees
- Charge therapists using their space for referrals
- Have very fixed times that therapy rooms are available
We wanted to provide a multi-disciplinary space where we could support each other as therapists and to offer a quality working environment for a reasonable price at times that suit you.
The frustration that this was not being offered pushed us to look into making it happen.
We like to think we have succeeded. We would love to hear what you think.
