the process

"Our holidays and short stays will provide you with a safe space to heal, to nurture and to grow. To help you find the focus and clarity you may be looking for."

about us

We organise therapeutic holidays with the aim to support you in achieving the better quality of life you may be searching for - so you may leave empowered and ready to embrace life once more.

You have the choice to choose either a bespoke holiday where we will arrange every last detail for you. Or you may find one of our group retreats more appealing.

Some of you may wonder are therapy holidays even a thing? Red Kite Retreats is founded by Yasmin Shaheen-Zaffar.

Having arranged successful wellbeing retreats since 2010 -  Yasmin, a qualified counsellor became increasingly interested in mental health & the mind/ body connection. Especially how the relationships in our lives affect our emotional and physical health.

Often her therapy clients would struggle to fit in weekly appointments in their busy schedules. Or some committed to wanting to solve difficult life hurdles it seemed an hour a week was not going to be enough.

Yasmin began offering breakthrough days and short counselling stays, offering clients a good space to work on their issues. Red Kite Retreats was born.

We work with a close team of qualified, experienced therapists. So whatever your issue that you are seeking support with, you can be assured we will match you with a professional who is suited to your needs.
