Looking for a place and time to relax, revitalise and be with like minded professionals where you can explore and develop in a confidential and safe setting? Then this may be the weekend for you. Explore with others what you need to do and be to make the most of your potential – both professionally and personally – to become who you would love to be. Can you remember why you chose to train to become a health professional? Does it feel like those hopes and aspirations are going to be realised?

Highly rated by participants for its caring and nourishing environment (including wonderful food!) and with experienced professionals leading the weekend you will have the opportunity to build on the present towards a more fulfilled future.

These courses are run by Sandy and Derek, both retired health professionals, one a neonatologist and the other a GP. Both have extensive experience in not just clinical work but of the management of the NHS, education and research. Derek has taught students for many years and has extensive experience in mindfulness training.

The retreat starts on the Friday late afternoon and runs until Sunday 4pm. It consists of great food, some mindfulness exercises, stretching/yoga, outdoor physical exercise, and group discussion.

The course is run in building adjacent to Sandy and Derek’s home and meals are taken within the main house. Accommodation is comfortable not luxurious. The nine acres of grounds are private and very beautiful. There is a commitment to a minimal impact on the environment (the oil boiler has gone replaced by a river sourced heat pump for all heating and we provide as much of our own home grown food as possible). It provides an excellent environment for such a weekend. Reflecting the ethos of the Centre, the cost of the weekend is low as we run on a not for profit basis.

Students £40, qualified professionals (only recently qualified will be considered) £80.
