Emotional Therapy

Private Emotional & Mental Health Therapy

Bespoke therapy to dive deep into your emotions, perceptions and beliefs to improve your mental health. For example: the past only exists in our memories; it is our reaction to our thoughts and feelings about of the past, when we replay them, which causes us emotional pain. Changing the relationship with those memories resolves that pain.
Holding Heart - Relationship Therapy

Relationship, Couples' & Family Therapy

The way we relate to others, and ourselves, is vitally important to our wellbeing. Deal with past experiences, break through limiting emotions and enjoy healthy, positive and happy relationships with lovers, family, colleagues and friends.
Life Coaching

Life & Business Coaching

Throughout our lives we meet stumbling blocks. Problems at work, in relationships, during life changes (think burnout, empty nest, mid-life/menopause, divorce, redundancy, retirement, health issues) often impacted by triggers we don’t even realize we have.
Health and Nutrition

Health and Nutrition

Food affects mood, increases or reduces inflammation, helps or hinders our sleep, can boost our immune system or cause us damage. What we ingest is vitally important and it doesn’t mean we have to be perfect, restricted or bored.

Private Residential Retreats

Intensive daily emotional therapy for profound, long-lasting change. Combined with delicious and cleansing Gourmet Raw Vegan fresh food and juice. OR less therapy, more rest and cleansing meals. Choosing a retreat is a big decision and often one we put off in case we get it wrong, especially if we are looking for help more than holiday. We are always happy to have a chat on the phone to discuss your needs, how we can help, and what we can provide. We arrange the dates to suit our clients and are flexible with a minimum stay of 3 nights.

Online Intensive Therapeutic Coaching

For clients who aren’t able, for whatever reason, to come to us for a private stay but would love to have a few days of a retreat-like experience or at least to have some concentrated and intensive one to one sessions to make changes to their life.

Online Therapeutic Coaching & Consultations

Working one-to-one, for a number of sessions over the short or longer term, we can help with a range of challenges. Dealing with issues ranging from emotional and mental health, relationships and major life changes, to motivation, business and study coaching, weight management, dietary and nutritional needs.


We help people to be healthier and happier both mentally and physically and to recover from experiences, in the past or more recent, so that they can live life fully without the ramifications of hurt, fear and shame.

When we first began having people come to us for retreats, 14 years ago, on the surface it was due to health challenges. Needing an operation but being too over weight and unhealthy to have it, suffering anxiety resulting in IBS symptoms, extremely controlled eating, drinking too much and over eating etc.
We used very clean and nutritious foods and juices taking people through a gentle detox with lots of walking and talking about where they were in their lives which often lead to talking about things that had happened in the past, problems they were experiencing currently and lack of hope or motivation for the future.

We quickly realised our work was going to be much more based on emotional health and helping our clients put to rest the past or deal with current difficult situations – and more often than not the two are linked.

The health issues were a manifestation of deeper emotional challenges.
We now address the mind and body with every client. The two are intrinsically linked and have a knock on effect on each other positively or negatively.
We help people resolve issues as painlessly, quickly and profoundly as possible and to move forward to a life they want to live.

What Our Clients Say

It’s hard to put into words the profound effects….. Such an incredible retreat. It’s hard to put into words the profound effects that Desri & Robin’s healing retreat has had on me.

Jessica B. 2019

I don’t know if ‘making you better’ is valid clinical terminology. But that’s what they do. When I was diagnosed with a rare neurological muscle disorder, the first thing I had to face was there was (apparently) no effective treatment for it.

Desri, thank you for being you. You are a wonderful, inspirational lady. You have certainly helped our family to get through some difficult times over the last few years!
