Anxiety is on the increase in today’s world. Stress, panic attacks, anger, irritability, social anxiety, work presentations – all can give rise to a sense of fear and helplessness. This retreat is designed to eliminate worry and anxiety and let the new you rise, phoenix-like, from the ashes of your past. This is where you will learn how to loose anxiety, stop panic attacks and hyperventilation, remove symptoms of nausea, palpitations, dizziness and General Anxiety Disorder, eliminate stress, subdue anger, banish tension, overcome irritability and learn how to regain control of your life. In other words, to become stress free – at work, at home, at all times, which is why we call it the 'Aniety eliminated' retreat.
A combination of Mindfulness – the Buddhist practice of training the mind to remain in the present – and CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, probably one of the most effective contemporary psychotherapies), is our key to success. Our method of teaching how to regain control of your mind rather than allowing your mind to be in control of you, will help you overcome those unwanted damaging emotional responses that spoil life and will ensure an ability to live an increasingly mindful life. With an increasing culture of pressure and demands at work, home and play this is an indispensable tool for living a harmonious life, despite these everyday strains. A retreat where you learn how to see life as it should be seen; calmly, serenely and peacefully. The ‘Happiness’ retreat.
Relationship failed? Recently divorced or separated? Bereaved? Redundant? Business failed? This retreat will help if you are having difficulty coping and moving on with your life. We know that life can and does go on. This retreat shows you how by developing new outlooks and new attitudes for new circumstances. A retreat which believes that ‘Tomorrow is the first day of the rest of your life’ for those wanting a new approach to life, reviewing priorities and perspectives. Leonard Cohen said “There’s a crack in everything… that’s how the light gets in.” This retreat shows the way forward through the dark into the light.
Fear destroys lives. Phobias, flying, going out, meeting people, lifts, escalators, MRI scanners, underground travel, Eurostar, crowds, packed buses and trains, post-road traffic incident, driving, being driven, examinations… the list appears endless. Combining the best of cognitive approaches to reclaiming the power of your mind while returning to that emotional and physical state we were all meant to enjoy - that of peace and calm and relaxation - this retreat puts you back in control of your life, your thoughts, your feelings and your behaviours.
