New centre opens as community hub for wellbeing

A new centre for health and wellbeing is being launched by two businesswomen who want to put community at the heart of their new venture.

Jaqui Barnes and Suzanne Burnell-Gray have joined forces to open the centre at Fairwater Stables in High Street, Wroughton, and are holding an open day on Sunday, July 20.

Jaqui said: “When we met we just clicked, we’ve both had similar life experiences and similar skills though we’ve got them in different ways. We are both continuing with our own businesses but bringing it all together at Wroughton Wellbeing Centre.”

“We are both mums of grown-up children, we both were single mums and we both are at a stage in our lives where we are ready to shine as business women. We both feel that our most productive years in our life are still to come,” Suzanne said.

The centre will offer therapies, workshops and one-to-one coaching around health and wellbeing. There will also be support for carers and training for business people.

Suzanne and Jaqui first met at a Wiltshire business networking group a few months ago.

Suzanne’s business is Lodestar Coaching and specialises in many therapies especially the Hypno-Band Weigh Loss System – a virtual gastric band – and 6 Hypnobirthing courses.

Jaqui’s business, Barnes-Monaghan, offers personal and professional development through training, coaching and mentoring.

The open day at Wroughton Wellbeing Centre takes place between 10am and 4pm. There will be an opportunity to try out various therapies and classes free of charge.

Visitors can take part in taster sessions and workshops including reflexology, massage, a confidence workshop and stress-busting techniques.

A collection will be made on the day for the Prospect Hospice. For details visit or call Jaqui on 07798 635529.
