You may be facing a transition in life; whether it be in work, relationships, menopause, midlife, illness, parenthood. You may be finding life challenging, or you may just wish to explore what really matters to you. You are in the right place. It is sometimes hard to find the time and space to tune in to what is really meaningful. Time Out For Transitions makes the space to pause and step back from the pressure of daily life or work. Whether it is a retreat or individual counselling together we create the conditions for you to connect to what is important.  

"Transition is a natural process of disorientation and reorientation that marks the turning points... a natural process of self-renewal" 

- William Bridges

In our programmes we offer both group retreats and individual sessions.


Our retreats use a powerful combination of physical practises and meditation (drawing on yoga and qi gong), stories and myths (as maps to the unconscious), time in nature, group processes (such as shadow and archetype work) and creativity. These processes and different ways of knowing help us to enquire into our inner landscape to find new possibilities and insights.They allow us to access other, sometimes deeper parts of ourselves beyond the noise of our internal dialogue. Being part of a group process can be empowering, rewarding and enriching as we witness each other and reclaim our own stories that have often been disowned or forgotten. We learn together and connect with one another, providing support and compassion.


Individual sessions with a qualified counsellor allow for time to really focus on ourselves and our specific issues, and provide ongoing structure and support.
