Creative Retreat Day

Saturday 10th September 10-4pm

A creative space for Counsellors, and Mental Health Workers to gather for the day.  Each session has a theme but will usually include a mixture of outdoor work and creative work. The aim is to give you space to reflect and grow around the theme of the day.

What to Expect


We will base ourselves at The Beulah Bistro, Tong Rd, Farnley, Leeds LS12 5EP. We will use one of their downstairs rooms which is rustic and peaceful. The Beulah is the base I use for Outdoor Group Supervision so it makes sense for us to meet here. It's not far from Farnley and Pudsey yet it has wonderful views.


Buffet proved by the Beulah. Please make sure you tell me of your dietary requirements on the sign up form


The theme of the day is The Compass.

In the morning we will walk down to the woods to experience the wonder of nature and in the afternoon we will do creative activities. I will help you reflect on the direction you've been in; leaving behind things that need to be forgotten and taking your growing points with you.  I will then help you find your North, which is where YOUR dreams for your practice lie.  You will leave the retreat feeling fully refreshed and inspired with renewed vision and purpose for your future and a plan on how to get started.  



Includes, lunch refreshments and all resources to be used on the day.

What do I need to bring

Items suitable for the weather on the day, walking shoes waterproofs etc. You might want to bring a notebook and pen. I will contact you nearer the time if there's anything else you need to bring.

About Nicola

I love working in creative ways and I love supporting others to work in that way too. Whether its taking a walk in the woods or using a box of pastels it opens up your subconscious to things you didn't originally see.

I have been wanting to run retreats for many years but didn't quite know where to start.  I supervise many brilliant Counsellors and I see us all exhausted and depleted from recent events. 

Creative Retreat Days, seems the perfect solution, It's part supervision, part CPD, part retreat-ful and part networking. If you already work with me this will completely make sense and if you don't know me then take a look around my site find me on social media or better still give me a call. I'm more than happy to tell you more about the work I do.
