James and Sean would like to invite counsellors and psychotherapist (therapists and healthcare practitioners) to take some time out for themselves and come along to our summer retreat. Our theme for this retreat is “meeting yourself again” and we are excited to be with you as you reconnect with parts of yourself and learn new ways of self care.

The retreat will run from Friday 14th July until Sunday the 16th July, We will gather for a weekend of sharing, nature, reflection, and connection. Over the course of the weekend, we invite you to join us to experience the deep work of awareness and connection such as drumming, breath-work, ritual, fire, silence, small groups, time, and immersion in nature including forest bathing, solo-time, teaching. We will also spend some time on creative activities to reconnect with our inner child.

James is an accredited psychotherapist with IACP (Irish Association of psychotherapy), an eco/forest therapist, and a sound therapist as well as a shamanic practitioner. James has a deep connection with nature and shamanic practices which have grown through training in transpersonal psychology. James has a devotion to LGBTQ mental health and well-being and in particular building community through connection and sharing of stories.

Sean is a Satir Coach and Mentor, Mind coach, and NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) Master Practitioner, certified with the Irish Institute of NLP. He has long had a passion for mind, body, and spiritual wellness and is also trained in many different energy and bodywork modalities.

The theme for our weekend will be focussed around reconnection with ourselves taking some much needed time out for ourselves.

Very often as therapists, we don’t take time for ourselves to relax and to heal. This retreat will give you a much needed opportunity for a weekend of self care among like minded healers.

This retreat is open to all therapists who are 18 or over.
