"Self compassion heals burnout"

Kristin Neff, pioneering researcher and author of the book Self-Compassion

Melt burnout with a Self-Compassionate approach to healing

Hello, my name is Adele, and I’m a Trauma Coach from Naked Recovery.

I believe that exhaustion and burnout is often created by the noise we hold within our heads which is a kind of negative self talk. I believe if we removed this negative self-talk from our lives we would have less mental health challenges and burnout in our day to day lives. Burnout has reached pandemic levels in the past 3 years and empowering people to look after themselves better, heal their lives and recover from burnout is something I have dedicated my life to. This retreat is beautiful and kind. It restores and rebuilds your relationship with yourself and melts shame and stigma. This retreat is for anyone who feels burnt out and tired of this negative chatter. I use specialised processes to support people to rewire themselves to shifting that language pattern and cognitive bias to a more empowering and uplifting context for their life. I’ve developed this special retreat called The Sanctuary which is a five-day retreat to help people to recover from burnout and install compassionate resilience in their lives.

So the kind of people that come onto The Sanctuary have burnt out and are tired of this negative cycle in their mind. They want to learn new techniques to shift the context from negative to positive.

If you want to find out more about The Clearing, book a clarity call so we can see if this is a vehicle to help you move forward in your life.

Don't just ride the rollercoaster of burn out and think you will be ok. Processing your emotions and changing your life is critical

Risks caused by delaying the processing of a burn out are significant and real both physically and mentally. But with courage, commitment, and action – you can choose your next steps. We guarantee it.

What makes The Sanctuary special?

There are three magic ingredients…

  • Intensity

    If you jog for once a week, in 6 months time your fitness will improve a fraction if at all. If you train 4 times a week, the results after just 2 months will be vastly superior. This is totally logical. And it’s exactly the same with recovering from burnout and learning how to stop negative self talk. The more intense the effort, the greater the reward. A 5 day retreat, is (obviously) far more intensive than a few calls a month with a psychologist. On the retreat we go into a great amount of detail and review life, help to get you in touch with what really matters and achieve healing, recuperation, discovery and space to work out next steps of what to do next.

  • Face2Face Interaction with expert in trauma

    Whilst the Naked Recovery team are experts in remote communication, there are certain exercises the therapists can do in-person which make a massive difference to the intensity of your transformation. Working with Adele in this retreat is a very intense and personal journey which not only leads to clarity, but to making some clear commitments to your transformation. Adele’s corporate background means you will most certainly leave with a detailed project plan for life moving forward! The Clearing is done alone with Adele and is considered her most transformational work.

  • Location

    Getting out of your normal environment means that you can focus on your healing in a way you cannot do at home. It makes total sense that a vacation will assist in emotional clearing and processing. If you want to reduce stress, and want to gain more happiness you need to escape your normal environment. We choose beautiful locations but often run our retreats on location with our clients too.

Sanctuary Curriculum

WARM UP PHASE (3 hours)

There is a warm-up phase to this retreat where you have an initial call with Adele to explain your situation at a high level. This helps her to tailor the retreat content to your situation and to give you further pre-work to best prepare for the retreat, if required.

The Sanctuary retreat is done 121 with Adele

Divorce CocoonThe first module is focused on restoring balance. You will do this module remotely with your Trauma Coach as you prepare for The Sanctuary Retreat. Before we do any processing of anything, we first need to get you grounded, and emotionally stable. To begin, you’ll create a strong solid foundation so you have a supportive environment to contain your transformation.

You’ll absorb the principles, ethics and structure of the program, so you’re ready and excited to begin transforming. If you are in the middle of a trauma then we may recommend to make the cocoon period a bit longer. Only leave cocoon once you have passed the test!

This will help you to figure out what to do with your life. With intensive work on your relationships, your values, your principles and exploring all ways forward, a space in your mind and body begins to emerge.

The Metamorphosis involves intensive work to focus on your relationship, critical learnings, what the source of the issues are and exploring what to do next. Rapid changes happen within a short period of time.
