France Retreat

Retreat-based therapy is designed to offer respite from the chaos, stress, and often overwhelming demands of everyday life.

At France Retreat we offer a safe space for an individual, couple, or family to slow down, reflect, heal, and restore. At our retreat, people can find the space and time they need to process personal, psychological, emotional, relationship, or spiritual issues in order to return to daily life feeling strengthened, renewed, and better able to meet a variety of challenges.

France Retreat Re Opening Soon

We offer group retreats or one to one bespoke retreats with follow-up support online through Skype or FB or Whats App.

Alternatively if you are unable to attend one of our retreats we can offer a coaching session on Skype or FB or Whats App directly with me.

Please contact me through the contact form on this website if you are interested.

We look forward to welcoming you.

Thanks Linda

No man is hurt but by himself

… that no man is hurt but by himself.

Diogenes said that, and he was right. Every person’s experience is created internally, by him or herself.

No one outside of you can tell you what anything means, or whether you are “hurt” or not.

If you feel hurt by something or someone, it is the result of your decision to feel that way.

This may be tough to hear, but it is true. You can change your mind at any moment about how something is affecting you.

Mistakes

that it is not necessary for you to report everyone’s
mistakes to them, much less to give them corrections.

It can be difficult, when you think you know a better way
to say something, to keep that to yourself. But try.
Unless someone’s life or safety depends on it, do try.

You would not welcome someone else pointing out
your own misstep, or less-than-totally-efficient approach
to something.


Why point it out to them?

Do you see it as your duty in life to make sure that all goes the way you
think it ‘should’?

That would be an inaccurate assessment of your soul’s
grander purpose.

A few questions to get you thinking!

  • What do you look forward to?
  • What friendships make you smile and feel more positive?
  • What hobbies bring out the best in you?
  • What do you deliberately do when you are down in order to feel better?
  • What music tends to lift your spirits?
  • What do your friends and family do that lifts your spirits?
  • Who could you call to get a boost?
