One of my favourite things about running the float centre is getting to meet all you lovely people! We get all sorts of people come to float – such a wide variety of ages, gender, reasons for floating… People come to float from the Forest of Dean, from around Gloucestershire and surrounding counties, and people even come from all over the country on holiday.
It is so satisfying to see the difference in people before and after their floats (the post-float bliss is a real thing!), and I feel privileged to hear their stories if they want to share them.
I’m a great proponent of the benefits of floatng, so I love that I get to do a job I’m passionate about, and to share those benefits with so many people.
Of course I also get to float regularly myself, which helps me to manage my own stress, to look after my body, and to ‘walk the talk’!
I am very proud that our centre is like a mini art gallery, displaying stunning art works by local artists Monique Oliver and Sara Ulyatt amongst others. We also encourage people to indulge in the simple pleasures of colouring-in or to be creative in the journals after their floats.
I get to work alongside Will, who you may know is my life partner as well as my business partner. We’ve been together since 1996 and he still keeps me entertained. Thankfully we discovered that our skills compliment each other at work pretty well too! We also get to have our wonderful dog Chai at work with us (mostly you wouldn’t know she’s here, and you can rest assured she goes nowhere near the float pods).
Ultimately I find it very satisfying that we had a dream to set up a float centre, and we created this wonderful space out of nothing. I am so grateful to everyone who believes in that vision and comes to float with us.
I’m looking forward to hosting your next float!
