Have you noticed or listened to what your body has been trying to tell you?

On the outside you may appear to be calm and self-assured. Inside, however, there is frequent turmoil.

You may be under tremendous pressure to improve your performance each day – resulting in exhaustion. Not knowing how to manage stress affects your body and mind.

As your mind continually wanders…occupied by a myriad of thoughts and ‘Things to Do’, you may feel over stressed.

But now, in a short space of time I can assist you to gain freedom from the thinking mind.

With our Mindfulness Retreat, you will gain skills to communicate with your body sensations and understand your own limits in any given moment.

Knowing your limits is the key to improving your well-being. By recognizing and then not exceeding your limits, you will prevent injury and illness caused by stress and over work.

Away from the hectic schedule of everyday life, this short break in the country will trigger dramatic changes in you.

Are you currently experiencing any of the following?

Allow our Retreat to be the first step you take towards transforming your life.

Treatments address and transform Depression, Anxiety, OCD, Insomnia, Fatigue, Chronic Pain and STRESS related symptoms.

After 3 days, previous participants with depression and anxiety successfully reduced their high BDI (Beck Depression Inventory) and BAI (Beck Anxiety Inventory) scores back to normal.

Some of the comments received from previous participants:

The feeling of complete relaxation and calmness that I am left with is indeed something else and I cannot tell you how much that has helped me through this difficult period. Your calming way and understanding makes it so easy for me. Thank you for all your help.

 This has been a truly enlightening experience for me. I will take away with me the key principles that will be in my heart for many years.

“Infinite possibilities”, flexible way of thinking, applying a gentle compassionate logic. Thank you. This method will be in me, I am so grateful.

I run my own business and have a very hectic and pressured life with lots of deadlines, meetings and targets to hit. Over the last few years I had found that I was getting anxious about things that were out of my control and it was starting to take over my rational thought process and become a real burden, to the point where I was starting to feel unhappy.

It got to a point that I felt I needed to take action to address the issue and found Etsuko by searching online, when I initially spoke to her she assured me that with some minor adjustments the problem could be sorted long term.

I spent 3 days with Etsuko on a one to one basis, spending time rationalising the issues, but more importantly learning to be aware of the present and not to worry about the future or the past, I learned yoga practices and breathing techniques and how to be more mindful every day.

After the 3 days I felt incredibly calm and relaxed and all anxiety had evaporated.

From home, I continued to do a morning and evening 15 minute programme which reinforces the practices and techniques.

It has now been a month since my visit and other than a couple of minor moments of stress I am pleased to say I remain anxiety free and I am calmer and happier than I have been in a long time.

Thank you Etsuko, what you do works and I hope you continue to help more and more people who suffer from anxiety and depression.
