Therapy Retreats ~
Counselling in comfort
Evidence based 'Fast therapy' solutions to life's personal, psychological and spiritual challenges in an exclusive country house setting.
Problems abound in today’s stressful world. Personal, emotional, psychological and spiritual challenges are faced daily. Many are reaching the point where they feel compelled to re-examine their lives and many are looking to achieve a new direction. 'Therapy Retreats Ltd.' is alone in the UK in combining the best of traditional and modern approaches to address and solve these problems. We deliver a unique range of retreats that produce tangible results for everyone who participates in them. Our residential retreats, in the restorative atmosphere of a country cottage, house or hotel setting provide a productive experience designed to eliminate underlying problems of anxiety, poor confidence, low self-esteem or depression. Far more intense and effective than expensive formal counselling sessions. Accompanying partners or friends also enjoy the facilities of our venues. Our retreats allow for exploration of personal growth, lifestyle change, eliminating anxiety, increasing confidence and self-esteem, overcoming negativity, spiritual concerns and general de-stressing. Of increasing interest is our "Harmonious Relationships" retreat for couples which aims to eliminate the myriad problems which hamper harmony with our chosen partner and restore them to what they were in happier times.
The programmes we run at 'Therapy Retreats' return the handset of thinking back to the client. Running on 'Automatic Pilot' becomes a thing of the past. Our evidence based 'Fast Therapy' approach over a few days, either midweek or at a weekend, provides instant control over those destructive and negative thought patterns which may have become ingrained over many years and which have developed the unwanted status of a habit. This therapeutic programme has excellent results in boosting confidence and self-esteem, eliminating anxiety and saving relationships. We do not go in for the traditional approach of long, drawn out psychological archaeology as we remain focused on what you are capable of tomorrow, not what you have been doing wrong in the past. Rapid cognitive change is expected and can be achieved by this intense process which allows for rapid and permanent results over the usual tratitional week-on-week counselling approach; a process which in many cases may actually worsen the condition being addressed.
Becky, from Oxford, left this testimonial after a private retreat in July: "David's therapy sessions are very informative and incredibly solution focused. David has genuine understanding of your needs and equips you with the tools and resources to help heal yourself. Self-awareness was the key to David's approach. Highly recommended therapy!"
Sue from Devon wrote this in May: " This retreat was an ideal, intensive programme which allowed the client to identify what needs to change and provides the tools to make that change.This is highly recommended for busy professional people".
Sara Tomlin, of Hertfordshire, wrote this after a recent private retreat at Talmage House in April this year: “I didn't know what to expect from a therapy retreat and doubted that my problems could be fixed in such a short space of time. David didn't spend time dwelling on the past and his matter-of-fact and sometimes humorous approach had me feeling different after just the first day. Since the retreat I have never felt better about myself and I have effective strategies to deal confidently with situations that used to have me in a state of complete anxiety! Life is very different (for the better!!!). It was truly the best investment I have made in years. Thankyou”.
Sarah S. London. "I hope the places on your retreats are being taken up because you certainly delivered what you promised on mine".
From a couple wishing to remain anonymous; written in September: "David was the perfect guide for what we were looking for - someone to help us focus on the future and to help arm us with the skills to get back on track and choose a different way of thinking about our lives and where we wanted to go. David is a skilful communicator and I will always value the guidance he gave us, and the toolbox we left the retreat with. If you are serious about committing to a future where you learn from the past but don't want to be restricted by it, then I highly recommend David".
