Below is our admission process.  Click the '+' for more info

Step 1: Your initial contact

Whether you use our livechat, send an email or speak to us on the phone, we will guide you through the available options. If you're not sure what you need to book, our team are on hand to answer all your questions.

Step 2: Your application

With completely bespoke retreat places built around your needs and goals, you'll be wanting to secure your place - to do this you need to apply for a place.  You can do this here

Step 3: Application review

Retreat creator and Clinical Trauma Psychotherapist Lilly Wickham will review your application and if accepted, you will be invited to attend a telephone consultation to help us understand your personal, family, work, medical & social history in more detail.

This call will help our team create a bespoke program suited to your individual needs.  If we are able to offer you a place, you will be sent a formal invitation via email to join the retreat.  This will also confirm all of the associated costs.

Step 4: Travel & Deposits

Now you have your bespoke package, it's time to start planning your travel.  You'll be pleased to know that we can take care of all of this for you including flights and transfers, unless you'd prefer to do this yourself.

At the time of booking, you will pay a non-refundable 25% deposit.  The balance of the retreat place is due 6 weeks before the retreat date.  Treatments are paid for at the end of the retreat. 

We also take the travel costs at the time of booking, so we can get the best rates for you.

If you book within 6 weeks of the retreat date, the full retreat cost is due at the time of booking and is non-refundable.

Step 5: Login Page

Shortly after your deposit is paid, your private login page will be accessible.  This is where your itinerary is shown, together with full downloadable travel arrangements, financial statement plus helpful information about what to pack, contact numbers, a countdown to the retreat and much more.

Step 6: On the day

We keep you updated of any delays to your flight.
When you arrive into Faro, members of our team meet you personally and take you to the retreat, which is just under 30 minutes away

On arrival, once you have relinquished your phone & electronic devices, you will go through an entry health-check before the welcome meeting
