Our Rooms

Room 1

The first room is peaceful and filled with ample natural light. The room has three big, cosy armchairs and is decorated in a more classical style. Shelves of books, wall photos with beach scenes and highlights of teal green through the armchairs provide the perfect lift to the more neutral greys and whites in the rest of the room. The room has also professionally soundproofed doors

Room 2

The second room has a more relaxed Scandinavian look, with its comfortable and modern couch and armchairs. Golden yellow cushions bring warmth into the room and accentuate its modern and inviting feel. This room has able light via a garden facing window, while it also includes a small desk. The room has also professionally soundproofed doors.

Room 3

The third room has a contemporary feel, with two large, comfortable armchairs and a sofa and is filled with natural light. Geometrical shapes in greens, blues and a touch of yellow provide a natural contrast to the neutral greys and whites, and dark green foliage in the rest of the room. The room has also professionally soundproofed doors

Our Location

The Life Academy Wellbeing Centre is situated in a transport hub in the heart of Bruntsfield and just a few minutes from Morningside at 3B Greenhill Park, Edinburgh, EH10 4DW. We are in a quiet street, just off Morningside Road, easily accessible by car and public transport and we offer a quiet and discreet entrance helping retain privacy. The Centre is accessed through a gate on the right hand side of the car park. As you walk in through the gated main entrance, please turn to your right, where you will see the sign for the Centre on the red brick wall and another small gate that leads you to the Centre’s entrance. Go around the back to the Centre’s green door, where you will see three separate doorbells. Your therapist will have provided you with a room number, please only ring the doorbell matching this room (i.e. room 1, 2 or 3), as other clients may be in the middle of a session when you arrive. If you arrive earlier and your therapist is not available to let you in, there are a number of coffee shops just across the road (including several that are open very early in the morning and remain open until late), as well as a large selection of supermarkets, restaurants and other food options.
