Healing Retreats

Trauma Counseling

Grief and Loss

Healing Retreats

Personal growth is a lifelong process. These retreats are designed for those who would like to transform feelings, especially grief, anger, depression, negativity, emotional outbursts, anxiety, and fear into more manageable emotions. In a safe and secure place, working with inner feelings can result in dramatic, life-changing breakthroughs. This 8-day retreat helps the participants connect with core feelings and beliefs that hold them back, transforming them and their everyday functioning.

Grief and Loss

Grief counseling is a form of psychotherapy that aims at helping people cope with the physical, emotional, social, spiritual, and cognitive responses to loss. These experiences are commonly thought to be brought on by a loved one’s death, but may more broadly be understood as shaped by any significant life-altering loss. This course trains the participants in understanding manifestations of grief and loss, and introduces them to methods and interventions used in working with grief and loss.

Trauma Counseling

Managing trauma in a timely and proper manner is important today. Seeking help from a trained professional can be vital. The counselee will have to be addressed depending on individual needs. Sometimes medication might be called for. This program trains participants in understanding the various aspects of trauma, its pathological manifestations, and introduces them to techniques and interventions used in trauma therapy.
