Time & Space to resolve your life issues

We are all guilty of developing negative habits and beliefs. However, this process can be so gradual that often we dont even recognise it. The fact were called Breakthrough Retreats is no coincidence we are aiming for a breakthrough which brings about the personal transformation you desire. Though this can come in the form of an Aha moment or a wave of self-awareness, all our clients will experience this at some point. Typically, this is followed by a welling up of creativity and self-expression accompanied by positivity surrounding the future.
