Renowned Medical Wellness Retreat coming to Blue Mountains, NSW

Envision Wellness Retreat is back in Australia for 2023 and this time, it’s bringing a taste of Europe to Guestlands, New South Wales. After successful retreats on vineyards in the Southern Highlands, Hunter Valley, and Bordeaux in 2022, the retreat is set to run from Friday 5th May until Sunday 7th May.

Envision Wellness Retreat is brought to you by clinical psychologist Dr Aileen Alegado, who incorporates both clinical psychology and medical assessments with Dr Jill Gamberg to help you achieve your optimum wellbeing while staying in a luxurious Italian village, with a private chef and 5-star amenities just an hour out of Sydney.

This retreat is a carefully curated intimate gathering of ten hand-picked participants, specifically designed to give you an experience that no other retreat can. Guests are selected using psychological principles to determine how group dynamics can bring about the most effective change based on individual personalities, in a revolutionary approach to wellness.

The retreat incorporates psychological interventions based on advanced Cognitive and Behavioural Approaches such as CBT, Schema Therapy and IPT. These assure meaningful shifts in the areas of life you are wanting to work on much more than any wellness retreat in the market.

An exciting addition to this year’s retreat is the interpersonal group sessions facilitated by Dr Aileen, an evidence-based process popularised by Dr Irvin Yalom. “When done correctly, group dynamics become part of the process of one’s growth and learning. This allows for the incorporation of many different points of view, and we see huge shifts in individuals.” Says Dr Aileen.

Dr Jill will be offering bespoke medical assessments with a focus on preventative health care and lifestyle medicine. Appropriate pathology and radiology testing is also available for those who want a more in-depth assessment.

Guestlands is a uniquely designed Italian village just tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city. From the cobblestoned street strung with fairy lights to the Lake Como styled gardens with cascading water features and a grandiose pool, you’ll be forgiven for thinking you are not living your own Italian adventure.

The ENVISION retreat aims to close the gap between a life well-lived and a life of fulfilment and joy. The retreat provides you with the skills needed to tackle stressors of everyday life, as well as identifying blind spots that could be holding you back.

The ENVISION Wellness Retreat at Guestlands in NSW is a transformative three-day experience that will take you on a sensory journey that combines the rich feeling of a European escape with the time and space to connect with yourself. Book your spot today to transform the way you live your life.
