Residential Retreats

I have been running three-day residential retreats now for several years. Each one of them has been highly successful for those attending. People have managed to tackle all different types of substance addictions as well as addiction to activities including OCD, gambling, over-spending and more.

The beat anxiety and stress tools I teach on the retreats have been a key factor in helping people maintain their new found freedom from addiction and control over their feelings and emotions.

Some people don’t come for any type of addiction and simply want to tackle anxiety and stress – this retreat really is for anyone needing to make any life-change.

Even those who have not achieved all they wanted to achieve – have gone away with a better understanding of how their mind and body works and how to create life-change of any kind. Some for example, have gone on to make relationship decisions, work and career decisions and actually achieve them.

What I teach is very different to anything else; in that it is not ‘fear-based’, ‘non-religious’ and does NOT use or need any willpower! I teach how you reprogram your subconscious mind to allow your ‘conscious’ self to take charge of where you want to go in life and what you want to achieve. So that you are not constantly being pushed every which way, responding to feelings and emotions.

The process is very simple but specific and after this three-day retreat, spent in a small group of no more than eight people, working very closely with me in a personalised way.

Retreats include a two-week mentoring programme 
Once you leave and go home, you’ve actually entered into the 10-day withdrawal period or life-change period (you’ll understand more when you begin the programme) so we’ve now extended the learning from the retreat to ensure two weeks of mentoring and support to each attendee. You will be helped through the withdrawal / change period and out the other side and mentored to help you make the necessary adjustments as you return to you life, work and relationships.

Lifetime access to my online course also included
You’ll also get lifetime access to my online course which is a series of short videos to embed the learning you’ve achieved on the retreat and to use as revision. Many people have reused the course to change other aspects of their lives with no further investment. Life-time access means that when we add new parts to the learning and update different sections – you’ll get these at no extra cost.

The retreats tackle:

  • Anxiety / stress
  • Addiction to recreational drugs
  • Alcohol
  • Nicotine
  • Sugar addiction including how to maintain a healthy weight
  • Your relationship with food and how to stop emotional eating or over-eating
  • Repetitive behaviours such as OCD
  • Phobias and any other fear-based conditions

It can also work well for people looking to stop negative thinking and redirect their minds to a more positive mindset in order to achieve business goals or any other life goals. To stop fear-based procrastination and work outside of their comfort zone.

The retreats are held in a stunning Grade II listed home Chantry House, in Harlow, Essex (Carbon Retreat) and start on the Friday afternoon, ending Sunday evening.  The house is absolutely stunning, and luxuriously furnished to ensure you have a wonderful environment in which to rest, relax and learn. Accommodation and meals are included. Meals are cooked fresh on-site by a professional chef and are all healthy options.

On the retreat you will:

  • Be able to relax and get away from it all – totally refresh your mind and focus on yourself
  • Do gentle exercise (to prepare your mind and body)
  • Meditation to calm the mind and prepare for learning
  • I will teach you my full Beat Addiction Programme over the two days
  • And the beat anxiety and stress tools which we’ll practice
  • Get to talk to me and get my support on a one-to-one basis and in a small group
