No, we only work with one person or couple or family at a time.
You have your very own haven with bedroom, bathroom, sitting room and terrace.
La Rochelle airport is closest to us, and we can collect you from there.
Alternatively, Bordeaux and Paris airports both have train links, and we can collect from La Rochelle railway station.
Eurostar from the UK can be taken from London to La Rochelle and we can collect from the railway station.
Driving is easy with good roads in France so possible from other European countries including via ferry or the tunnel from the UK.
That is very unlikely. We provide juices, smoothies and meals that are filling and nourishing and there are fruit and drinks provided. We are always happy to provide snacks too.
Don’t be, you are always in control. Being in either of those states simply focuses your attention, all choices are always yours before and throughout sessions.
Of course, we are often asked to do this as some clients need it, others simply want to be sure.
Confidentiality is paramount and nothing is discussed with anyone other than Robin, Desri and the client.
NB We would need to break confidentiality if obligated to in the name of public safety or the client’s health – e.g. if a client indicated they were about to inflict harm on somebody or themselves, or had committed a serious crime or abused children.
We do not provide alcohol and if you use it as a crutch we advise that you don’t but the space is yours and you can make your own choices. If you are here to detox, juice fast or deep cleanse then no.
We advise that you take a break and if you are doing a full detox or fasting the answer is no. But if you on our standard regime are a one coffee a day person and enjoy that and it is not causing a problem go ahead.
The house and grounds are a no smoking zone. If you do smoke and want to stop we can help with that whilst you are here.
There are doctors, a pharmacy, supermarket various shops and banks, a post office, church, hairdressers and beauticians within a 10 – 20 minute walk. We can translate if needed.
We try to stick to a plan but always listen to our clients.
We encourage where needed and also recognise that sometimes a few hours or even a day (mainly applicable to longer stays) of doing nothing on the beach or cocooned inside is more important.
We work with clients to give them what they need but if a client consistently doesn’t turn up to sessions, eat their meals or meet up for our walks we will address this and help make a plan that works.
People come for our help and we make sure they get it whilst being sensitive to their choices.
