Churchill Retirement Living’s Wessex Lodge in Bagshot will open its doors to the public for a socially distanced Grand Opening event on Friday 2nd and Saturday 3rd October.

Interested visitors can now book a slot for the opportunity to take a tour of the Show Complex with up to two friends or family members, whilst enjoying a glass of Prosecco. A range of measures will be in place to keep everyone safe during the event. The Churchill team will be on hand to answer any questions visitors may have, and full information packs will also be available to take away.

Anne Scherrer, Regional Marketing Manager for Churchill Retirement Living, said: “With the Show Complex at Wessex Lodge now officially open, interested purchasers can see for themselves the layout and design of the apartments as well as the attention to detail and high quality they can expect from Churchill.

“After months of lockdown we know that many people will be thinking about the future for themselves and their families. The Churchill lifestyle offers security, peace of mind and independent living for our Owners, along with making new friends and being part of a new community. I’d encourage anyone who wants to find out more to come and see us now to avoid missing out.”

Wessex Lodge, which is located on London Road near the heart of town, is a collection of 25 one and two bedroom purpose built retirement apartments. The apartments boast spacious rooms throughout, which have been considerately designed with the over 60s in mind.

Hypnotherapy – New complementary therapist in Bagshot

When new businesses or organisations come to Bagshot we offer them a chance to introduce themselves.

“Andrew Major has joined the team at the Integral Life Centre in central Bagshot, offering Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, helping clients address mental and emotional struggles as well as physical ones. Andrew has helped many people reduce anxiety, lift their mood, improve sleep, overcome fears, find motivation for weight management, gain confidence and much more.

Andrew practices Solution Focused Hypnotherapy which is a modern and effective technique, based on the latest research from neuroscience. Combining psychotherapy and clinical hypnotherapy, it doesn’t involve analysing past problems or their cause but focuses the preferred future. A collaborative process which supports clients in taking small steps forwards whilst developing a more positive outlook on life and reducing anxiety. Hypnosis consolidates sessions helping the mind relax and focus on thoughts and suggestions that are useful for therapeutic change at a subconscious level. A very pleasant and relaxing experience.

Andrew has a passion for helping people and understands how hard it can be to make changes without support. He uses his knowledge about the human mind to pass on skills to others, helping them take control and gradually feel better.

Having trained with the prestigious Clifton practice, Andrew was also awarded the prestigious Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD), considered to be the ‘gold standard’ hypnotherapy qualification. He continues to update his skills regularly and is committed to the highest standards.

Andrew is looking forward to welcoming new clients to his practice at the Integral Life Centre in Bagshot and appointments are available in the daytime or evenings. For more information please contact Andrew for a chat in confidence on 07464 682 389 or visit his website
