Hi, my name is Chrissy and along with my colleagues I'll be helping to organize your Couples Therapy Retreat.
I'll explain how we work...
Your retreat holiday is built around your Couples Therapy Retreat Program; a 20 hour program of individual Relationship Counselling and Life Coaching for couples. There are no group sessions, it moves at your pace and we don’t do anything scary.
We only book a handful of guests at any one time, ensuring that you receive the undivided attention you deserve.
I'll meet with you to decide the pattern of our sessions together. Some are with both of you and some are individual. It depends what you need. We'll usually meet up daily and sessions last up to 3 hours. We have our own office in your hotel, so everything is very easy and convenient.
Before you arrive we'll ask you to complete Personality Profiles. We'll review these with you when you get here. It's the most advanced personality profile system in the world and provides you and your partner with essential information for exploring your relationship. This also helps to set goals and realistic targets.
We'll work together through your problems and difficulties and by the end of your stay will create your own Relationship Change Plan which outlines what you are both going to change and how.
At the end of your holiday you'll receive 3 months continued support from me and can choose to join our private Facebook support group.
You'll have no shortage of help for as long as you need.
The Holiday Part
We provide a huge range of activities and excursions.
We'll discuss the kind of activities which will help you to re-connect with the best parts of your relationship. This may include swinging through the jungle on a zip wire (watched by bemused gibbons), learning how to cook each other dinner at The Thai Cooking School, Spa and Massage Treatments (separately or together), or some challenging but fun activities like rock climbing or looking after your own elephant for a day.
The local food tasting tour of local markets is always popular, as are some really special restaurants which we have hand picked for couples who want to enjoy each others company again.
I’ll tell you what, just contact me and I’ll send you the full list... and if you don't see anything you fancy, let me know what you would be interested in. We can find something for everyone!
Where We Are
The original Couples Therapy Retreat Program was pioneered in London and we looked long and hard for the perfect location.
We searched for ages to find a perfect location. We were very fussy. It had to provide year round sunshine, beautiful scenery, a great range of retreat holiday activities and stress free. We wanted it to be perfect. Eventually we visited Thailand and when we arrived in Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand we knew we had found what we were looking for.
I had never been to such a wondrous place. I loved the culture, the serenity and the food! Most of all, the vibrancy, it makes you feel alive. It’s the perfect balance for our therapy retreats.
We use the best 5* boutique hotel in Chiang Mai called Puripunn Boutique Hotel. It’s beautiful. We know the staff really well, including the owners Khun Att and his wife Khun Koy. They will look after you like a member of their own family without being intrusive.
The hotel provides a perfect retreat setting. The pool is beautiful, the atmosphere is calm and serene and the food is out of this world. Each room is individually decorated and furnished and has its own balcony. It’s perfect. You’ll love it.

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, airport transfers and Couples Therapy Retreat Program costs about 79,000 Thai Baht per couple. It maybe more or less depending on when you travel and the activities you choose.
For 14 nights it would be about 98,000 Thai Baht per couple... depending on dates and activities. By the way... 20 hours of Relationship Counselling in most major cities will cost you significantly more than your whole Couples Therapy Retreat... even when spread out over a 2 week stay.
You can reduce the price even more by staying in a guest house hotel. This option could cost as little as 59,000 Thai Baht per couple.
