Our Vision

"Providing the highest quality service to people seeking freedom from emotional, psychological and spiritual distress"

As a service arm of Ora Charitable Trust, Life A Plenty comprises a Therapeutic Retreat Team made up of a group of experienced therapists and educators with extensive knowledge and expertise across a range of areas including depression, anxiety, stress, relationships, grief and trauma.

In looking to extend traditional therapeutic approaches, this team of therapists/educators gathered to discuss an approach to therapy which is transformational, affordable and enables clients to achieve their goals quickly and successfully. The overall aim of the team was to develop a therapeutic context which provided a safe and secure environment for participants to develop hope and meaning and the skills to live positive and vibrant lives. Out of this vision, the idea of a service that provided counselling alongside short-term residential retreats (two to three days), was born.

As friends and associates for more than a decade, the team shares a vision and a commitment to finding and implementing approaches that work. To this end, the practices which underpin our Therapeutic approaches are based on evidence and research. These include modalities such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Mindfulness, amongst others. Each member is committed to ongoing professional development to ensure their services remain up to date and relevant.
