I have always thought that when life is difficult the ideal thing to do is get away from it all to somewhere where you can think clearly, work out what to do next and then go back and do it.
What would make this even better is to have someone to help with the “thinking it through” bit. Ideally not just a friend but someone who knows how to really help, a good Counsellor or Life Coach, not someone that will just smile and nod sagely but also not someone that has just copied loads of exercises out of a Life Coaching manual.
Whilst teaching counselling and motivational psychology at university I fondly imagined that something like this existed. I imagined all kinds of retreats and holidays tucked away in nice parts of the world….. I was astonished when I realized this was total fantasy.
I either came across rather austere Counselling Retreats that were based on shared bedrooms and a “ therapeutic community” approach or high end executive life coaching for high end executives to achieve even higher business goals. All well and good, but where then should people go when they need to sort out their lives, when they want to get away from it all but don’t want to spend a fortune, oh and also enjoy a really good tailor made holiday at the same time?
We thought it was about time to create what we had always imagined was out there.
Counselling Retreat: Why It Works
It works very well for several reasons…….
- Firstly because we really do know what we’re doing when it comes to helping people change. We’ve been doing it for a very long time and are also involved with recent advances in motivational psychology.
- We choose to remain small so we get to know every guest before we actually meet them, and can take really good care of everyone.
- We don’t abandon you when you go home. We support you for 3 months after your return with our online counselling and life coaching program, making sure the changes you make with us really do stay changed.
I’m sure there are other important factors involved, such as our beautiful partner hotel, Khun Sonthaya’s magical trips and tours, the good weather, sunshine and blue skies and the fact that we are in the heart of the land of smiles, but that’s all for another day.
Keep in touch with us and if you have any questions about our Counselling Retreat, Couples Therapy Retreat and Life Change Holiday please don’t hesitate to contact us.
These really are…. “holidays that change your life.”
Bye for this week.
