Would you love to run a retreat, but don’t know where to start?

This is for you if you are a writing coach or book mentor who

  • has been running a business for a few years and would like to offer something special and unique to your clients
  • wants to gain confidence running a retreat 
  • would love to run a retreat but hates the thought of organising it all 

Hello, I’m Rebecca Adamsmentoring in the sunshine 2 - copia

I work with coaches and writers to help them run retreats.

Running a retreat can be rewarding and extremely enjoyable. It gets you out of the office or your training room and doing something different. It’s an opportunity to offer a learning experience to your clients whilst they also get time to reflect or relax. It provides a space for them where they can get away from every day distractions and really benefit from what you have to teach them.


Productive time out

Whilst living in a beautiful corner of South West Spain, I realised the importance of productive time out in an inspiring location and felt compelled to share this wonderful location with others by offering retreats to personal development professionals who would like to take their clients to Spain.

So, I set up European Coaching Retreats to help coaches, writers and consultants to create something special, somewhere special with their clients whether that’s in the U.K., Spain or elsewhere.

Running a retreat might not make you rich overnight, but it will help you grow your business by building a special relationship with your clients. Change that might take months in our normal surroundings happens quickly outside of our comfort zones which is why retreats are so special for your clients.

How I can help you

  • I provide coaching to help you gain the confidence to run your retreat.
  • I give you tips and advice based on experience.
  • I work with you to build up a vision of your retreat and your ideal client so that you gain the clarity you need.
  • I support you through coaching and mentoring to organise your retreat. From sourcing a location to support with pricing and budgeting and designing your agenda, I take you through my five-step-process to make sure you are ready to go.
  • I can help you plan the content for your retreat if you haven’t run workshops before. Having worked in education for years, I have plenty of experience of designing and delivering content with a learner centred focus.
  • I can facilitate on location, so that you don’t get stressed out trying to do everything yourself. This means you are free to make sure your participants are enjoying themselves and having a great time while I sort out the logistics: a welcome pack, dinner arrangements, taxis, transfers and organising walks amongst other things.

I take you step by step through the process of organising a retreat and give you the support you need to carry it out successfully. As a trained coach I’ll listen carefully to what you are looking for and give you ideas based on experience, to make it work brilliantly.

If you’d like to run a retreat, but you’re not sure where to start, then retreat coaching could be for you. 

Through my coaching and mentoring sessions, I support you to

  • build up a vision of your retreat and your ideal retreat client
  • find a location that suits your needs
  • give you tips and advice on running your retreat gain confidence in your role as a retreat leader a
  • help you plan and organise your content so that your participants get the most out of the time they spend with you
  • create a plan and countdown action sheet for your retreat

Giving your clients an exciting experience they will never forget  is easier when YOU feel confident and supported.

Retreat Host and Facilitator

As a retreat host I provide practical on-the-ground support at your retreat.  I will take care of your guests and sort out any problems that arise. Having someone to lean on allows you to feel relaxed and confident and get on with what you do best.  If you want to organise your retreat in Spain, I speak fluent Spanish and will organise accommodation, taxis, food packages as well as providing translation and interpretation. 

Reflecting on our time away, thinking how lovely it was to arrive in the apartments and have everything prepared there and enough food for breakfast for the week and having the support of Rebecca around us and on hand, many thanks Rebecca for organising that.

If you choose to run your retreat in Spain, I can provide you with accurate information whether you want to offer a VIP experience with no expense spared or an intimate cosy venue. I lived in Spain for 18 years, so I know the area well. I know and trust the service providers I work with and will source the best service for you. I can introduce to places and people you may not discover alone.

I speak fluent Spanish which means communication with local service providers is smooth and carefree and takes the hassle out of all those complicated bits that you don’t have the time or inclination to worry about.  I can translate, trouble-shoot, deal with enquiries and offer advice about the area, the food or whatever else you’d like to know!

I have an eye for quality and detail and will source the ideal location for you in Spain. I take pride in ensuring that you and your clients are well looked after and that you have everything you need during your retreat. I’ll make sure that everything’s taken care of. So, all you have to do is turn up, get on with what you do best and enjoy the experience. I’ll even get you to focus on what you need to be doing to get your clients to sign up for that extra quality time and space with you.

Work with me,  Rebecca Adams, to learn how to create  a bespoke retreat and run it with confidence.

As a trained coach, I  listen to exactly what you want and work in partnership with you to create the tailor-made retreat you are looking for.

You get support every step of the way from developing the idea and sourcing your venue to accompanying you on the retreat if you’d like an on the ground host. This allows you to feel confident and excel in what you do well when you get there.
