Throughout the programme at your Serenity Weekend Wellness Retreat conversations are therapeutic in nature, skilfully guided during your time with Theresa, your qualified counselling psychotherapist and host. She is always aware of the subtlety required between times for speaking, listening and being in silence, in the company of others and time alone.
