Hi, My name's Chrissy and I'll be helping to organise your Counselling Retreat.
It's ideal for individuals who want to get away from it all, relax, sort out problems and find new ways forward.
Your Counselling Retreat is more than just Counselling and Life Coaching. It condenses 5 months of weekly counselling, life coaching and therapy into a unique programme which allows you to sort out problems and make lasting changes. Your holiday includes:
- • 3 -14 nights at a partner hotel on the Essex Coast in the UK or Chiang Mai, Thailand
- • Clinical Personality Profile and Full 360 Degree Assessment
- • Goal Setting
- • 10 or 16 Hour Individual Counselling Retreat Programme
- • Private Transfers (where needed)
- • Life Change Action Plan
- • Dedicated Follow Up Support
We offer 2 programmes which are the same except for the length of time. One is 10 hours and one is 16 hours. Every day you'll meet with your counsellor who will lead you through your programme, sorting out difficulties and problems along the way. This process starts with your Personality Profile and works towards your Life Change Action Plan. There are no group sessions, it moves at your own pace and we don't do anything scary or weird.
Over the past 30 years we've worked with thousands of people who have successfully changed their lives. Our programme is informed by recent advances in Motivational Psychology, Personality Profiling and evidence based counselling interventions. We are qualified senior practitioners with over 100 years combined experience.
Whatever life is throwing at you we'll be able to help.
Counselling Retreat Location
We have partnerships with a range of hotels and self catering options on the Essex coast, just one hour from London and also in Chiang Mai, Thailand. We have organised this programme to be totally flexible in order to match a wide range of interests, needs and budgets. We will send you a range of options, or you can simply book your own accommodation and meet us in our office for counselling.
Both the Essex coast and Chiang Mai offer a wide range of options for accommodation and both are easy to access from a wide range of destinations.
Counselling Retreat Activities
It's important to have time out from counselling so we have a range of activities to suit everyone, from top class wellness and spa treatments to wine tasting and coastal walks. There are about 50 different activities and outings to choose from in both locations.
Who We Are
We're the original Life Change Holiday people.

Counselling Retreat Prices
We work hard to fit within your budget. Let us know when you would like to come and we'll give you a price.
To give you a rough idea:
A 7 night stay in a 5* boutique hotel in Chiang Mai including breakfasts, airport transfers and 16 hour Counselling Retreat Programme costs about 69,000 Thai Baht. It maybe more or less, depending on when you travel and any extra activities you choose.
A 3 or 4 night stay on the Essex coast including a bespoke 10 hour programme will cost approx £700-800. Again it may cost more or less depending upon your accommodation and the time of year you travel.

Just send us an email we're always happy to help.
