Counsellor Retreats in the Snowdonia Mountains

Connect - Reflect - Recharge - Heal

BOOK NOW!

Vicarious trauma, burnout & counsellor isolation is a widespread issue for counsellors & we don't talk about it often enough

Do you:

  • Feel isolated in your work?
  • Feel guilty when you are struggling with your own mental health?
  • Sometimes neglect your own emotional self-care to take care of others?
  • Crave time with  a community that nurtures and supports you for a change?
  • Want to meet other counsellors who aren’t afraid to talk about their struggles too?

Our annual retreat is a fully immersive, nurturing & creative experience for you to connect with like-minded counsellors, and focus on taking time to reflect, recharge and heal.

Our retreats offer you a chance to:

  • Come together with other counsellors
  • Reflect and take time out – just for you
  • Enjoy creative activities
  • Spend time recharging in nature
  • Connect with like-minded counsellors who understand what you’re going through
  • Reaffirm your sense of community and belonging

Your retreat experience

Once a year, we take a small group of counsellors into the Snowdonia hills in Wales. The estate sits in a stunning location, surrounded by tall often snow peaked mountains with a beautiful lake lapping gently onto the grounds.

We hire out the entire property so you can fully relax and immerse yourself in the retreat experience.

The entire focus of your time away is for you to unwind your body, your mind and your soul. We create an environment for you to feel nurtured, safe and rested.

Absolutely everything is organised for you. Choose to join in with as many or as few of the activities as you want.

We offer:

  • Meditation

Our first retreat - A mission is born

At the beginning of 2018, we realised that our community members needed something just for them. They needed a safe haven to spend time with other counselling professionals who really understood what they were going through

We decided to organise a retreat. When we put it out to our community, the spots booked out really quickly. We then took that small group of counsellors up to the Welsh hills.

It was a life-changing experience for us all.

In the evenings we had glasses of wine around campfires. In the mornings, we held group meditations. We immersed ourselves in art and creativity, movement and drumming.

 “Our closing circle at the first retreat. I’ll never forget it. Everyone sat together in a room, and we all burst into tears. People were crying, because for the first time they felt held. They felt safe. They felt that they weren’t judged by anyone else” Tanja – Creative Counsellors Founder

It became so clear to us that vicarious trauma has a huge impact on people working in our profession.

“I now get to organise a new retreat every year and bring counsellors together under the stars and I love it!” Gaynor Rimmer – Events & Retreats Lead

And so our mission was born.

 To put an end to counsellor isolation – and create events to support this mission.
