|| Lockdown sees Nottingham's at1.SPACE yoga & wellbeing business attract followers from around the world ||
These are extremely challenging times for all small, independent businesses and at1.SPACE is no exception. We are taking each day as a blessing, taking comfort from the growth and strength of the at1.SPACE community.... and are happy to share this lovely write up received from The University of Nottingham.
A local wellbeing business founded by a University of Nottingham graduate has amassed members from all over the world during COVID-19 lockdown. Before lockdown, at1.SPACE, based on Triumph Road in Nottingham, offered classes in yoga, mindfulness and meditation; as well as counselling, acupuncture, sports massage and nutritional consultations. The country-wide lockdown saw Yasmin Gregory, founder of at1.SPACE and Nottingham sociology graduate, make the decision to take the business online with the help of senior yoga teacher Mumtaz Haque. Yasmin commented: “We had to adapt really quickly when lockdown started to be able to continue to reach our members. The business did not have an online presence before this – the whole concept of at1.SPACE is that all of the elements needed for wellbeing are under one roof; members don’t have to rush around from place to place, everything is provided here, from yoga to audiology.”
The company’s proximity to both the University of Nottingham and Queens Medical Centre saw many medicine students and health workers among its clientele and now during the coronavirus outbreak, at1.SPACE is offering free membership to NHS workers. Thanks to social media and word of mouth, at1.SPACE has new members from across the UK and the rest of the world who are now able to access its services online. Through a private Facebook page for members only, at1.SPACE is delivering its sessions by streaming them live to its community at a discounted rate, which include live yoga, mindfulness and meditation sessions. Yasmin and Mumtaz have been working hard to find new ways of bringing wellbeing to the online platform and last week’s schedule included a session from a Specialist Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist and another from a registered nutritionist.
Counselling & Psychotherapy with Ronda Pearce
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and psychotherapists (BACP), as such I adhere to their ethical framework and good practice guidelines.
I have a MA in Counselling & Psychotherapy from The University of Nottingham and have been practicing for a number of years in Nottingham.
Like you, I have experienced life’s ups and downs so can offer a genuine, non-judgemental, safe space for you to explore any difficulties you may be experiencing. Talking to a counsellor can help you gain a better understanding to your thoughts and feelings. With clarity, your pathway forward may seem clearer, allowing positive change to happen.
I am delighted to announce that I am practicing from at1.SPACE on Jubilee Campus, 2B Triumph Road Nottingham NG7 2GA with free parking.
This space is a cosy room that is part of a holistic wellbeing space bringing together self- care for the mind and body. at1 SPACE also offers yoga & hot yoga, sports massage, juice bar and healthy café. Yoga is known for its benefits to ease stress, relieve anxiety and promote relaxation. I firmly believe it can also improve the quality of your life. I am a member of at.1 SPACE myself, so being able to practice from this great space is a privilege for me.
I specialise in anxiety, low mood, stress management, loss, trauma, self- belief and relationships. My work is based on a relational, humanistic growth model, rather than a medical diagnostic model.
Short- term crisis management is also available: There are times when life experiences turn our world upside down. I specialise in crisis management for adults; supporting through grounding and client centred goal setting.
I offer a simple pricing structure of £45 per counselling hour. Call, text or email to book a session.
