Chiswick Coffee Break ep 17 with Patsy Richardson

Welcome to the Chiswick Coffee Break ep 17 My guest today is Patsy Richardson, owner of the Greenhouse.

Patsy is originally from Zimbabwe where she had a happy childhood growing up on a remote farm, running around barefoot, and living the simple farm life. She went to University in Cape Town before settling in UK and pretty soon arriving in England she moved to Chiswick, where she has lived for over 25 years.

The Greenhouse is brand new and only opened in November last year focussing on providing high quality rooms for coaches and therapists to rent by the hour. It is a talking therapy space on Chiswick High Road, at the junction of Turnham Green Terrace, and Patsy called it The Greenhouse because it is a place where people can come, get shelter, get sunshine and grow. True to it’s name The Greenhouse has a woodland theme with actual trees and forest plants throughout the space. It is designed to be calm, welcoming, and accessible for clients when they visit.

Before starting her own business, Patsy had an international marketing career in London with big companies like Unilever and Cadbury. However, she has always been a creative and independent person and dreamed of starting her own business so when the opportunity arose, she left corporate life to start a business working in property doing some lettings and some property development and now is enjoying watching the Greenhouse grow and thrive.

Go grab a coffee and enjoy our conversation.
