      THERAPY RETREATS

 

 

 

 

These individual retreats are designed to address any difficulties you are struggling with.  You may wish to improve your confidence, your self esteem and develop a more positive mental attitude.  If you are having difficulties with speaking to others, dread giving presentations, or you are finding you are feeling isolated in social gatherings, then a therapy retreat would be ideal.  

Some clients feel they would like the time to address specific areas such as giving up smoking or dealing with a phobia or fear.  Relationship problems can be addressed on these retreats.

Whatever the issues, we offer you the time to work on your issues and the space for any changes that need to be made.  All therapy retreats will have one-to-one sessions spread throughout the day, a note pack plus the individual programme you will be asked to complete during your day.  There will be time for reading, reflection, relaxation and time to explore the countryside around the hotel, and the facilities nearby.

Cost of a therapy retreat:

1 Day 10am - 5pm £350 (Includes light lunch and refreshments)

(3 days, 2 nights) - £1,200. (Includes hotel accommodation & food).

CROCKSTEAD FARM HOTEL

Located in the heart of the Sussex countryside, Crockstead Farm Hotel is conveniently placed with Brighton, Royal Tunbridge Wells, Eastbourne, Lewes and Haywards Heath within a short driving distance.

The hotel is located within its own 200 acres of parkland, which was once a working arable farm right up until 1991. Guests are most welcome to walk in and around the land and although much of this is now cut for hay, there are many fields in which you can wander and relax in, or alternatively, sit by the enchanting pond and admire the attractive wildfowl.
