Welcome ... we are Jill and Dawn and we founded
Dialogue & Space in 2019.
Our vision was to find a place where we could create a community of practitioners dedicated to supporting people to live less stressful and more rewarding lives.
We aim to be a home for practitioners and a safe space for visitors to explore a wide range of therapeutic and restorative needs. The space will be available to rent and we will provide links to therapists/practitioners that can be contacted if you are interested in exploring further.
We have 1 large group space and 3 medium sized therapy/meeting rooms for rent. The group room will accommodate up to 20-30 people comfortably. The other spaces will accommodate 4-8 people comfortably, so ideal for family/couples/ small group work/ Supervision groups.
The spaces are available Monday-Friday with weekend booking available too. There is capacity to book the space as a whole for weekend events.
We rent on block booking basis i.e. morning, afternoon, evening or longer day (9-6pm) /evening (2-9pm) slots. We 'host' Edinburgh Gestalt Institute's extensive Library of psychotherapy and therapy related books and publications. Room-bookers have access to the Library, a communal kitchen and a developing roof-top garden space. Each room has art materials and there is small storage for room-bookers to keep their own materials/items. We are developing body-work space, so if this interests you then please let us know.
WE ARE SORRY BUT CURRENTLY OUR BUILDING DOES NOT HAVE ACCESS FOR THOSE WITH MOBILITY ISSUES. THE SPACE IS UP A FLIGHT OF STAIRS. WE WILL BE EXPLORING OPTIONS TO ADDRESS ACCESS OVER THE COMING MONTHS.
This space is 27 by 16 Feet and has windows along one side. It has a cupola which means it is bright even on a cloudy day. It can be used by larger groups - up to 25 people, or for movement without the furniture.
This room can be used for individual work and small groups too. It's set up to be used in different ways.
This room is 12 by 16 Feet and has windows to the front of building. There is space to sit and move and it is ideal for individual/couples/family work. There is space for additional seating as necessary.
This room is 16 by 13 feet and is set up for individual, couples and children/young people's work. It has windows to the front and space to move as well as to sit. It can accommodate up to 8 people.
This room also has plenty of space for movement or play.
This room is south facing and sunny. It is 13 by 12.5 feet in size, so has space for up to about 6 people. Can be used for one to one or small group sessions.
Room bookers have access to facilities for making drinks/ storing food/ basic cooking within a well equipped kitchen. There is a dining table and space to eat and meet with others. This is also available for room users as part of training/small group bookings.
If you are interested in weekend bookings or booking exclusive use all of our space for events/training then please just contact us.
It's a work in progress but we will be developing our roof-top space into a garden over the coming months. This will be a south facing space to sit, contemplate, eat and perhaps grow some stuff ....
WATCH THIS SPACE FOR EVENTS AND TRAINING.
We will be developing a range of events & training for therapists and counsellors in the future. If you wish to join our mailing list please just contact us.
We are Dawn and Jill and we have worked together (on and off) for the last 22 years. We are delighted to be developing a space for practitioners to come together within a working community that attends to creativity, well-being and growth.
