Sharon Shelbourne, Owner
When you come into Beehive, I want you to feel like you are walking into a calm, therapeutic and welcoming atmosphere with soft music playing in the background. The key focus is your journey, from when you find us to when you walk out, feeling that you have had a positive experience and where excellence is a given. I enjoy receiving the positive feedback that you give us on the difference that all of us at Beehive have made to your lives and it means we are doing it right which the most important thing.
I have worked in the NHS for the majority of my professional career and seen first hand the impact that people’s health can have on the whole of their lives, how they feel emotionally, physically, how they function daily and how it affects the people around them.
Having worked in different disciplines in the hospital and the community, I am passionate about making a difference to people’s health. This has led me to setting up Beehive as I wanted to create a one stop shop where clients can find everything to deal with their physical, mental, spiritual wellbeing in a tranquil and relaxed environment. The choice, expertise and flexibility means that you can chose a professional and build a trusting and caring relationship to optimise your health.
Joanne Wood, Practice Manager
I have been with Beehive since the beginning, when Sharon shared her vision of an integrated health centre with me. I had been a research scientist and worked within hypnotherapy and coaching so saw first hand the great benefits that can be achieved when different disciplines are combined to tackle a health concern. It is far greater than the sum of the parts!
My role here is to manage the operations of the centre, to keep it running smoothly with quality services available and to ensure that every customer who walks in is helped in any way we can.
There are so many different treatments, classes and workshops available here that I like to take the time to chat to you to find out what you are looking for and what factors need to be taken into account. Choice and flexibility is something I believe strongly in and so will always offer contact details so you can work out which approach or professional is right for you.
I also hold discussions with any professional who wishes to work from the centre, we welcome contact from any health based discipline who would like to move their business to Beehive or expand into Chester.
Anne Cutress, Reception & Marketing
I first came to the Beehive as a client, had a positive experience and when I saw the position advertised I thought, “oh yes – I could work there”- and here I am!
At Beehive being a receptionist is more than booking appointments – it’s welcoming our clients, making sure they’re comfortable, explaining the many therapies our professionals provide, advising on the suitability of different wellbeing classes, keeping all the information up to date and ensuring our therapists have everything they need to be able to deliver excellent service to our clients.
A day is never dull and I’m constantly understanding more about the benefits of holistic care and also of particular therapies. I’m lucky that I manage the website and social media so always have a reason to need to find out more about the therapies which our talented professionals deliver.
The best part of my day though is seeing the transformations which occur – both from when our lovely clients walk in the door to when they leave after treatment, and also seeing the changes over a period of time when they’ve had a course of treatment and you know that their quality of life has improved.
