about me

Hi, I’m Betty. 
I’m passionate about creating wellbeing retreats which are affordable and accessible to everyone, ensuring that self care is not just a luxury but might be something that can be undertaken regularly as part of a routine to a healthier, happier life.

Attending Jon’s Mindfulness classes during the 2020 lockdowns marked a significant turning point in my life. After a major upheaval left my mental well-being fragile and my future uncertain, these sessions became a vital support. They taught me to observe my thoughts and emotions rather than reacting impulsively. Jon guided me to discover a newfound inner strength – the ability to enjoy solitude, appreciate my self-worth without guilt, and find happiness within myself. I learned to embrace my value confidently, take transformative steps to overcome my fear of being ‘too much’, and recognise that my inner dialogue is just fleeting chatter that I can control.

I still attend Jon’s Mindfulness sessions every fortnight. I firmly believe that you shouldn’t stop the ‘treatment’ just because you feel ‘better’. If you stop, those symptoms may gradually return, and I can confidently say that I am content with the Betty I am today.
The dedicated professionals I collaborate with to offer wellness classes are committed to creating a safe and inviting space for you to discover, learn, unwind, progress, and flourish.
You can find a full list of upcoming retreats available for booking on our retreats page. We warmly welcome any ideas, suggestions, or collaboration opportunities.
