Memories to last
What we do here is get into your neurology so you never forget it.
"You have sparked the fire inside me,
reminded me that anything is possible.
No matter how much wind & rain
there is the fire can burn on.
ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!”
"It's refreshing to know that I'm not alone and I've truly felt the support and acceptance of everyone here. I am leaving feeling like I'm now permitted to be my whole true self.”
Hibernation is a survival strategy to help us rest so we can build strength.
Let's embrace the dark and the cold as a necessary part of the year and find warmth inside ourselves.
We'll have hot chocolate and slow-cooked stews. We'll huddle around the fire toasting marshmallows. We'll slow down together, breathe together, be quiet together. We'll sing together, walk together and learn together.
We'll reflect on time past, gather what we need, lay down what we don't and consciously choose and embed the direction we want to go looking forward.
We'll move into the new year with a sense of balance and restoration. Not looking for the new year to 'start' but instead taking stock of where you are and where you want to go.
Hi, I’m Steph, I work with humans, and I love it deeply. I’m a twice trained Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) Practitioner and Multiple Brain Integration Techniques (mBIT) master coach. I’m also an acting coach and director who specialises in The Meisner Technique, a training tool which is specifically about getting out of your head and becoming less self conscious. However, it’s not just relevant to actors. At the heart of what I do is create a space for you to explore what makes you human, what makes you, you. Many of us go through each day not fully knowing why we do what we do or even what it is that we do and therefore not realising the importance of that knowing.
I would love to spend some intensive and immersive time with you so I can share a plethora of really powerful tools and guide you through the process thoroughly enough so they are a part of you once you leave.
Is this therapy?
Nope. I am not a therapist, I am a coach.
We’ll be working with your present and where you want to go and not focussing on your past. It’s likely your past has already had a lot of attention, be it in your head and/or in a therapist's room. This tends to give your past more power than it needs.
I am not here to undermine your story, you are you because of your past and we certainly won't be shoving it under the carpet either - but it is time to take the reigns and determine where we go from here.
Why group coaching?
Firstly, people are inspirational if you let them be and secondly holding space with and for others gives us the space to reflect on ourselves. The more we listen, the better we get at listening. The more we reflect, the deeper our learning and richer the change.
I'm also very collaborative, I don't believe I have all the answers. Sure I have a wealth of tools to share with you but we are better together and X amount of heads are definitely better than one!

Your home for the week
The site is cosy and we’ve thoroughly enjoyed finding ways to give you as many adaptable options as possible to help you come together as a group whilst offering you little spaces of solitude and spaces to breathe.
There are 3 en suites bedrooms, each with bunking for 4 people and each bed with it's own curtain, shelf, plug socket and light. Plus we've built stairs instead of ladders.
We understand sharing accommodation can feel daunting to some people so we’ve put lots of thought into how we can make it as comfortable as possible to give you ease of mind.
