Serenity Weekend Wellness Retreat 
Talking Therapy, Sound Therapy, Meditation Practice,
Sound Therapy Training Workshop for Personal Self-Care


Our two night, weekend retreat, is intended for individuals who want to avail of an opportunity to take a step back from life in order to focus on their personal self-care and development. It is experienced through a balanced programme of therapeutic activities with ample free time to relax, unwind and 'simply be' during the afternoon and evenings. 


You can take the time to walk, think and talk, without being rushed or constrained by the clock and schedules. 


Our programme activities are guided by your counselling psychotherapist, Theresa who offers support and a listening ear throughout your retreat. All conversations with Theresa are therapeutic in nature; focused around your individual needs and areas for growth and development. 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 with your therapist. 

The itinerary consists of a ten hour therapeutic programme of Talking Therapy, Sound Therapy, Meditation and Sound Therapy demonstration for self care practice - delivered between Friday and SundayYou will be subtly immersed in the practice of mindfulness throughout your time with us.

You will have ample time to wind down during your free personal time, which will enable you to process, reflect and rejuvenate your body, mind and spirit throughout your day because our programme is guided at a leisurely, relaxed yet progressive pace.
