Tell us about Dovelight wellbeing, what do you help people with, how long have you been in business and where are you based.
Dovelight wellbeing is a person-centred, holistic business offering counselling and therapies to support clients. Clients come to us with a variety of issues they may be struggling with at that time such as bereavement, depression, trauma and anxiety.
Counselling and therapies can also help with coping with life’s downs, allowing people to move forward positively. We also run workshops and classes, offering meditation and Alexander Technique among many others. We are based on Colinton Road, Edinburgh, just up from the tennis centre and have been in business for a few years now.
Can you tell us, why you started Dovelight wellbeing and what led you to go down this path?
At one time I worked at Stevenson College (now Edinburgh College) and more than one student approached me to ask for help/ support/ advice. I realised I needed more training to meet those needs more fully and began a person-centred counselling course at the college (with Higher Psychology), beginning my training in the field.
How does Dovelight well-being benefit your local community?
Any local community can benefit from the services Dovelight offers, whether that is our one-to-one counselling and therapies or attending a workshop in one of our bespoke colourful spaces. We support and promote personal growth.
What's your favourite part of running Dovelight wellbeing?
My favourite part of running the business is interacting with people, either those who work here, staff or clients.
I am passionate about a holistic approach to wellbeing and continue to learn from those who come to provide a service at Dovelight.
What's your least favourite part of running Dovelight wellbeing?
My least favourite part of running the business is dealing with finances, in particular apportioning costs for the many services we offer.
If you were talking to someone who was just starting out in your field, what advice would you give them?
Michelangelo said: “I am still learning.”
I believe an openness to experiencing the world, connecting with people and seeing the bigger picture in situations are all vital.
Positive growth and awareness of expanding as a person are also to be encouraged.
Can you tell us which one or two marketing activities have brought in new clients to your business?
Open days have been a successful marketing activity. They enable a full view of our lovely spaces and therapy garden which encourages potential clients.
Advertising through social media has brought results also.
Can you tell us which collaboration partners you are looking for, if any?
Any collaborative partner would need to be in the field of wellbeing. Perhaps promoting each other’s services would be a starting point.
We collaborate already with people who are hiring spaces for workshops and classes at Dovelight.
Anything else you'd like to share about your Dovelight?
Dovelight is quite unique in its attention to detail maximising a person’s visit to dovelight as a positive experience.
We are professional yet warm and welcoming also, supporting clients on many levels.
