Coco Counselling in Communities Makers Market

We are CoCo Counselling in Communities (www.cocoed.org.uk), a small not-for-profit counselling organisation based in the Southside of Edinburgh. We offer one to one counselling and psychotherapy to all those in the community seeking support for their mental health. Our premise is that all people should have access to affordable counselling within their community, regardless of their ability to pay. In addition to our indoor work, we offer a unique ‘walk and talk’ service for those who seek solace in the outdoors.

On Saturday 28th May we will be holding a Makers Market to raise funds for our much-needed affordable counselling service. The market will consist of around 14 traders, all local makers and artists. In addition, there will be refreshments, music and a silent auction where people can bid for a range of prizes.

Creative Acting Classes

These classes offer you the opportunity to creatively explore and learn acting skills, as well as gaining new character building tools in a well-held, playful and supportive space.

We will explore and draw on a range of different approaches and techniques together, including those inspired by Stanislavski (imagination, senses and emotions), Grotowski (creative bodywork and somatic movement), Jacques Lecoq (clowning and miming), and Yoshi Oida (exploring the use of space and developing stage presence).

The classes will involve:

  • individual and group exercises, and drama games
  • deep self exploration and building confidence, imagination and creativity
  • understanding and developing characters
  •  exploring the use of voice and body through vocal and physical expression and movement
  • clowning and miming
  • working with scripts, using environment, sound, space, personal experience and characters to explore text and performance

No previous experience is required, and all levels from total beginners to experienced practitioners are welcome. I will adapt our work together to your needs and experience, as well as to the wishes of the group. Feedback will be given throughout the course and all questions are encouraged.

Spaces are limited to 8 people, to enable in-depth work in a safe space. Initially, we will have 4 weeks together (from-until), after which we will discuss a future course if you would like to deepen your work in level 2.

If you would like any further information and to sign up, feel free to call me under 07548131171 or email me at jelenabasic33@gmail.com

I very much look forward to hearing from you!

Love, Jelena

Lunch-time Pop-Up Event (External)

Would you be interested in doing a lunchtime pop-up event in a corporate building?
We’ve got a big lobby space where you could advertise your brand with some promotional materials like flyers etc. or even sell your product on the spot. All that with no cost.

We are based at Atria One, 144 Morrison Street Edinburgh.
Atria One is occupied by 17 large companies. On average we have around 200-400 employees coming in to work from the office each day.

Pop-ups take place in our lobby area.

It is entirely up to yourself how you want to use the space. You can have a banner, promotional materials, product you want to sell etc. From our side, we can provide a table or a few. However, if there is anything in particular you need, just let me know and we can see what are the options for organising it.

In the past, we had businesses like Hot Yoga, Massage and Glow, Candle and co, Wee bee company, Le Petit Cafe, Pure Gym and more.

In November we are planning to host pop-ups on the 17th and in December on the 8th. Let me know if that is suitable.

Ps. Just to remember… to be in the building you will need to have a valid licence or insurance so you are safe 🙂.
