The retreats are a combination of my hypnotherapy skills, my passion for tourism and hospitality that I have nurtured for more than 20 years as a hotelier and travel agent, and my willingness to help people that are finding themselves on this life path, are growing their awareness and their curiosity and desire to find their purpose with wisdom, confidence, worth, compassion and an open mind. I’ve been there and I know how it feels and the most important thing is that I now know better than ever how to deal with anger, depression, anxiety and addiction, I can’t wait to help you with any of these issues.
My retreats are a combination of yoga, meditation, hypnotherapy, neuroscience, healthy food as well as the celebration of our physical bodies through dance and movement.
During the retreat you will have the opportunity to have Hypnotherapy understanding and relaxation sessions through trance practice, meditative practice and helping you to be present in the moment which can aid you in connecting with your inner self, and yoga classes for a powerful mindfulness practice, to reduce stress and help you to make healthier life choices.
We are the architects of our own lives and our duty is to learn firstly how to love ourselves. Once that is achieved we’ll be rewarded with health, love, wealth, compassion, gratitude, appreciation and many happy days!

Freud likened the three levels of mind (preconscious, conscious and unconscious) to an iceberg. The top of the iceberg that you can see above the water represents the conscious mind. The part of the iceberg that is submerged below the water, but is still visible, is the preconscious. The bulk of the iceberg that lies unseen beneath the waterline represents the unconscious.
According to Freud, thoughts and emotions outside of our awareness continue to exert an influence on our behaviours, even though we are unaware (unconscious) of these underlying influences.
The unconscious can include repressed feelings, hidden memories, habits, thoughts, desires, and reactions. Memories and emotions that are too painful, embarrassing, shameful, or distressing to consciously face are stored in the enormous reservoir that makes up the unconscious mind.
As a solution focused therapists (SFT) or hypnotherapist one of our main aims is to present clients with knowledge and an understanding of how their brain works, as well as the physiology of neurochemicals. The explanation of how the intellectual mind works is very important especially when we need to make them understand that when we use this part of this brain we usually take things right in life and it always comes with a proper assessment of the situation.
The SFT as defined by the title itself avoid digging into the past or the patient’s memories. Hypnotherapy triggers the brain through trance method in order to connect the intellectual brain to the primitive brain. Only when the two brains are focusing on the same thing we can access the subconscious mind and this is the easiest thing to contrive.
I found myself on the Hypnotherapy path during my self-growing process, a journey that started almost three years ago, just few months before the Global health crisis.
During my awakening I realised that I had lived for 47 years in survival mode as Dr. Joe Dispenza defines it.
I realised that I was living my life based on other people’s models and scripts; I was following advice based on other people’s life experiences because I believed people had my best interests at heart and knew me better than I did. My thoughts and actions were dictated by social interactions, family and acquaintances. My life was slipping through my fingers in an attempt to be a good person for family and society’s benefit while myself and my passions got lost in the process, frozen in time and forgotten in the past.
With the help of science and teachings from books and various mentors, I’ve learned the true meaning of simple words that were part of my vocabulary but of which I never had the real and deep understanding; words like happiness, awareness, mindfulness, gratitude, visualisation, meditation, breathing, relationship, connection and even love. I have consumed around 30 books based around self-help and realisation and actualisation in the last 2 and a half years, which is not a huge amount I know, but it has high significance when you consider that from completing University in 2004 until 2019 I read around 10 books in total (I wrote and published a book of my own in 2013 in Italy).
From 2020 I’ve read only books which are positive for my mental and emotional growth and to be honest this wasn’t my initial intention. I came across a dialogue on Linkedin, a dialogue between strangers as often happens on social media, who were talking about good habits to have when you wake up in the morning, and I discovered the Miracle Morning book by Hal Elrod. A new phase of my learning and realisation started from this book which I ordered straight away, followed by The Miracle Equation, then Life after Life of Raymond Moody, How to Think Rich of Napoleon Hill, Financial Freedom of Dave Ramsey, Ikigai Philosophy, all Dr. Joe Dispenza’s and Terence Watt’s books, books to name a few.
One book was leading into another and the more I was reading the more I was aware of my life, of where I want to be in life, of what I want to do with my life, of who I want to be surrounded with in my life, of how extraordinary and powerful the brain is and the most important thing which is what makes me happy.
Acting, interacting and thinking positively became my priorities even before I knew about the miraculous hypnotherapy practice and results that I found accidentally while browsing YouTube. I followed my gut feeling and after few months of wait and a zoom interview I was accepted as a student at one of the longest-running schools in the UK: CPHT – an accredited solution-focused hypnotherapy training school that uses established and trusted models in this domain. My curiosity about how the brain works and how to empty our stress bucket or how to cope better with depression, anxiety, addictions or phobia was sated by this course discovery.
