Our leadership retreats are run in collaboration with Make It Wild at the beautiful Heather Lea eco-friendly Holiday Cottage and surrounding ancient woodland. They are compassionately crafted to & suitable for up to four individuals who may already work together, or who may never have met. Over two nights (and one and half days) you will be supported to make the changes needed to improve your well-being and resilience, a unique programme delivered by us here at Where the Mind Grows. 

These Retreats are ideal for…

The retreats are compassionately crafted for leaders who are aware their Mental Health & well-being is currently being impacted.


 We appreciate that being a leader is challenging & ever changing, meaning you have to be constantly adapting. 

2020 has bought new challenges for you and your team both personally and professionally and I am sure you feel like all the hard work and effort you have put in to help your team thrive has fallen at the wayside, amidst Covid-19. 

When you began your role you probably had visions of being profound and inspiring. Instead you find your self plate spinning and exhausted and wishing things could be different. 

Now you find yourself over-worked, stressed out, restless and even resentful and bitter at the situation you are in. 

The Retreat programme and therapeutic coaching approach is tailored to provide a safe, nurturing space to learn new ways to navigate your your life & leadership, putting your well-being & resilience as priority. 

Take stock, identify ways to keep well and gain back a sense of vision & control in taking next steps. 

Our leadership retreats will give you:

  • space for rest and recuperation from your role

  • time in a beautiful natural setting

  • one to one coaching sessions helping you recognise and re-strategise your well-being. 

  • New skills to help you manage the stresses in your life. 

  • personal resources with which to maintain and enhance your well-being

  • the tools to develop and action plan for positive change


The retreats are a bespoke experience for individual leaders who need time out before you burn out!

The 2 day experiences are available for solo bookings giving you the whole experience for your self. 


Peer retreats can also be booked for a arty of up to 4 leaders, happy to share the beautiful cottage space together ( each with their own private room).
