What will you experience?
Mindfulness and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy
Vanessa will work with you to help you to manage your negative thoughts and develop techniques to deal with overwhelm using Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. She will show you evidence based techniques to bring compassion and mindfulness into your life enabling you to feel happier within yourself, helping you to become more positive in your relationships both with yourself and others. Vanessa also teaches a variety of mindfulness techniques to support you to be more focused and in the moment, bringing peace of mind, calming down worry and anxiety and lifting your mood. We provide a space where you can talk about your problems with no judgement.
Our yoga teachers all have personal experience of anxiety and depression so are very attuned to your needs and tailor the session specifically for this purpose. The yoga sessions are physically gentle and can be adapted for all physical needs. Yoga provides you with a sense of wellbeing, and helps to build self esteem and confidence. It supports you to balance your moods and feel generally rested and rejuvenated.
Relaxation and Fun
We aim to make your experience fun and relaxing as well as taking a serious concern for addressing anxieties and feelings of depression and healing you as a person. There is a swimming pool and sauna and time for you to relax on your own or with others. The gardens provide tranquility for a peaceful walk and reflection and there is time for this in our relaxing but balanced programme.
The evenings are filled with fun activities with a therapeutic theme to them. It is time to talk with others or engage in some fun activities to help you relax whilst socialising with other like minded people.
Empowering you to make the right choices for you
We provide you with the tools to take your life forward with hope and excitement for your future. You will explore your values and how working with these supports you to be more content and at peace in life. We guide you through this process enabling you to understand and feel connected with your true needs as well as developing a plan of how to bring these into 2021 as new goals for your wellbeing.
Connection with likeminded people
A benefit of a retreat is the opportunity to connect with likeminded people. By sharing with others you can eliminate any sense of isolation and loneliness that often comes with Anxiety and Depression. You can come away feeling a sense of being heard and knowing that you are not alone. Group sessions are facilitated by Vanessa Wallace and her psychotherapeutic team bringing a family feel to the whole retreat and safety to share and be open about your feelings. You are not asked to share more than you feel comfortably able to and there is an opportunity for 1-1 session if you prefer to not share in a group.
One to one sessions
We provide 1-1 sessions prior to the retreat, on request, during the retreat and for 3 months after the retreat. The sessions will be with one of our expert psychotherapists and counsellors who are highly skilled and qualified in delivering, counselling, CBT and mindfulness. With your allocated therapist you can develop a plan for your recovery and have the ongoing support to implement all the skills into your life when you are back home.
The post retreat sessions can be held face to face, over Skype, zoom or the telephone dependent on your location and preference.
Deep Tissue Massage
Our Deep Tissue Massages help you to truly relax into your retreat experience. It is pure indulgent time out for you. The massage will leave you with a deep sense of calm, relief from stress and feeling renewed and revitalised. Deep tissue massage also helps to release emotions that get locked in the body, supporting you to move forward and relieve the tension caused by stored up emotion.
