Our therapies

Our therapies and approaches to dealing with the concerns of our clients are a unique combination of the most effective and validated treatments available. They range from aspects of ancient spiritual wisdom of the past (long before the new 'science' of psychology was established 150 years ago) to those utilising the most recent research from neurology and the biological sciences. Cultural and social research also make significant contributions to our approach. Therapy Retreats offers programmes devised from the clinical experience of nearly four decades. You can have complete confidence in choosing one of our retreats to help you resolve your concerns. "All that a man achieves and all that he fails to achieve is the direct result of his own thoughts." James Allen 1864 "You can't stop negative thoughts from popping into your head, but you can choose to stop letting them control you and your life." You are what you think! Therapy Retreats shows you how to overcome your past for the benefit of your future.
