Retreat Details

The date

The retreat runs from Monday, 7th October to Friday, 11th October 2024.


The location

Our retreat will be held at the Six Senses Resort in northern Ibiza, a hotel well-versed in delivering deeply restorative wellness experiences. From luxury accommodation options to beachfront caves, every corner provides a meaningful setting for deeply healing experiences rooted in the local culture.


The resort itself is beautifully secluded, merging into the rugged beauty of the Northern Ibizan coastline. This being said, it is still an easy 35-minute drive from Ibiza’s international airport (a 2-hour flight from most major European cities.)


The accommodation

Guests will be accommodated in the Village Wing of the Six Senses Ibiza hotel. The Junior Suites exude a modern yet cosy ambience, featuring spacious bathrooms and living areas with large daybeds. Each suite also boasts a generous terrace with partial sea views.


The guests

The retreat welcomes anyone prepared to experience deep transformative change. We begin with a detailed mind-body assessment with leading practitioners to design a bespoke and personalised therapeutic programme which will be presented to you upon your arrival in Ibiza.


The mind-body assessment

Your journey begins with an in-depth mind-body assessment before the retreat, conducted by leading practitioners from The Chelsea Psychology Clinic. The initial assessment will take 60 – 90 minutes.


The cost for the initial assessment is £500. If you choose to attend the retreat, this cost is deducted from your overall payment. If, at the end of the assessment, you do not choose to attend the retreat, the assessment can be used towards a future retreat or to help guide recommendations for treatment within the clinic.

 

The schedule

Guests are matched with dedicated psychological facilitators for personal sessions, alongside engaging group activities.

We offer a unique mix of individual sessions and group activities, including Pilates, sound baths, mindfulness, Motion Release Therapy (dance therapy), hiking, a sunset ceremony, and workshops on sleep and nutrition. Activities are designed to meet your specific needs and goals, ensuring a bespoke journey of mental and physical wellness.

A Wellness Retreat like no other…

Wellness is more than the occasional salad or yoga session – it’s an all-encompassing journey. It’s about the whole person: mind, body, spirit, and emotions. At our retreat, we understand that true health requires a holistic approach – one that looks at the bigger picture.


Our mental and emotional health is intricately linked with our physical well-being. An imbalance in one area can affect all others.


That’s why our retreat focuses on getting to the root of issues, balancing every aspect of your being.

What to expect on our Wellness Retreat

Whether you’re looking to address specific challenges or pursuing personal growth, our all-encompassing approach integrates evidence-based therapy, sleep assessments, nutrition, sound healing, motion release therapy, and nature-based mindfulness. 


Here’s what you can expect:

Personalised programme
Before your arrival, our lead retreat practitioner will carry out an in-depth mind-body assessment. They will evaluate your current challenges or growth objectives, mental and physical states and intended outcomes for the retreat to create a 5-day programme entirely bespoke to you.

 

One-on-one expert guidance
Each participant is paired with a psychological facilitator who will guide and support you throughout the 5-day programme.

 

Multiple evidence-based therapies
Experience a diverse range of therapies and interventions like Schema Therapy, imagery work, chair work, and EMDR, alongside Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and mindfulness-based approaches.

 

Group activities and workshops
Participate in motion release (dance therapy), pilates, sound baths, nutrition workshops (led by expert dieticians and nutritional therapists), and sleep talks from our sleep expert and clinical neurologist. For those interested, a personalised sleep study is also available as an add-on.

 

Holistic approach
Whether it’s understanding the mind-body connection, working with emotions stored in the body, or deepening personal growth, our retreat offers a blend of physical and psychological exploration

Deep dive into your wellbeing

Our approach at the retreat is designed to go below the surface, guiding you towards a deeper understanding of yourself.

Mind

Your emotional wellbeing is important. We’ll discuss your feelings about the retreat, recent emotional experiences, and daily stressors. It’s about recognising patterns in your behaviour and their impact on your wellbeing. We’ll align your core values with your goals, helping you pinpoint three key achievements for your time here and the months following. We’ll also think ahead about potential challenges and how to navigate them so that you leave the retreat feeling empowered and with a clear plan for sustainable, lasting change.

Body​

On the retreat, we will encourage you to explore your body – how you feel within it, the nature of your movement, and your overall physical well-being. We’ll talk about your sleep patterns, nutrition, and address any physical concerns you might have, like fitness or wellness goals. The aim? To identify personal goals for your stay and the next six months, keeping in line with what really matters to you.
