In The Making

Is a 12 month customisable programme designed to create freedom, choice and lasting change in any area of your personal or professional life that you think needs it.


Think of it as a gap year for grown-ups minus the back-packing globe-trotting bit, yet with just enough time out to think, plan, and bring your ideas to life in the company of a small group of likeminded people having a year out to do just the same.


In fact, all you need bring is your imagination, commitment and an itch to shake things up a bit.


Believe me, you’ll be on a mission once you get going and realise that you can do and be anything you want when you have the time and space to make it happen.


Why a year?

Because experience tells me that miracle cures and quick fixes are a false economy. Far better to take the scenic route, learn heaps along the way and emerge wiser, happier and more fulfilled.


What’s in store?

A programme of discovery and learning designed around 6 retreat style days, and then a year on, a final morning of reflection and celebration to mark the close of the programme.  All of this in a pared back, beautiful, off-the-beaten-track setting with as much or as little coaching in between as you need.

What will you get?

A new lease of life with:

  • Clarity about what’s important to you

  • Confidence to create or let go

  • Commitment to get stuff done

  • Coaching tools and techniques to set you up for life


Liken it to a little gift of wisdom all to yourself.

Who’s it for?

Open to men and women, all ages and stages of life and career welcome!  Each programme runs as a closed group with a maximum of 8 places.

Programme Calendar

The programme begins in May each year, with a full retreat day every other month over the duration of one year. All retreat days fall on a Thursday to protect those precious weekends. A year on, there is a final half day for time to share, reflect and celebrate the anniversary and close of the programme, followed by lunch and farewells.
