Counselling Services

Private Counselling

Through your participation in one of our programs you may become aware of unresolved emotional issues and/or important (perhaps difficult) decisions that you need to make. The overall structure of the program is designed to bring clarity and resolution to those issues relating to the program itself, however some participants feel the need for extra help in the form of an individual counselling session.

A limited number of individual counselling sessions are available during the retreat (outside of program session times) with the following members of our therapeutic team.

Please note: Private counselling may also be arranged after your retreat stay.

Paul Bedson
BA, B.Couns., B.Acup.

Paul is a counsellor and meditation instructor who has been working in the field of Mind-Body medicine for many years. Paul specialises in the areas of emotional healing, grief counselling and relationship counselling.

Paul calls his work “Holistic Counselling” as he supports the whole person; body, emotions, mind and spirit.

Paul will support clients in dealing with such emotional issues as anger, anxiety and resentment so they can complete and release the past and be free to make a strong commitment to their future.

Both people experiencing cancer and their support people need help in dealing with the many emotional issues associated with the healing journey.

With respect to heightened concerns about the spread of Coronavirus, we continue to be lead by the directions of the Victorian Government Department of Health and Human Services. In line with current restrictions for businesses and gatherings in Victoria, we have made the decision to reschedule our March, April & May Retreat and Training programs to the second half of 2020. New dates will be available online shortly.
