New therapy rooms launched in Stroud

A new business in Lansdown, Stroud has announced the opening of its bespoke therapy rooms.

Formed from partnership between Bill and Liz O'Dell and Sarah and Paul Holden, 'Ownzone' offers independent practitioners private, flexible, convenient and professional rooms to conduct client consultations.

The facilities provide individually designed rooms ranging in size from private space suitable for individual or couples' therapy, to a large meeting room ideal for workshops, training or other group activities.

Ownzone also offers a welcoming reception area, kitchen and disabled facilities.

Qualified practitioners can take advantage of a fully automated booking system with secure coded entry to both the premises and room.

Open seven days a week from early morning until evening, each booked session allows access to the room for 90 minutes, giving time to both prepare beforehand and catch up with notes after, allowing a full hour for the consultation.

Prices start from as little as £8/hour, with monthly membership allowing practitioners to book rooms on an ad hoc basis or regular and consecutive sessions reserved far in advance.

Paul Holden, co-director of Ownzone, said: "According to NHS England and the mental health charity Mind, approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK experience a mental health problem each year.

"However, our research showed that whilst a growing number of facilities are available, there is a real lack of local venues for qualified therapists and counsellors working with those who seek help."
