This retreat is designed to let you focus on YOU, whilst enjoying an Alcohol-Free vacation with like-minded women
The Reset Retreat will take place at Prince Hall – a beautiful Georgian manor house in the heart of Dartmoor National Park, and we will take over the whole property for the duration of the retreat, with access to its gardens, sauna, hot-tub, woodland meditation area and stunning moorland views. All rooms are en-suite and the whole property is super-comfortable, with squishy sofas and cushions aplenty.
You may arrive feeling stressed and harried, but you can not help but relax and unwind here, and you will leave feeling truly peaceful.
Delicious Healthy Food
You are what you eat. All meals will be prepared by Sal Dhalla, ‘The Food Witch’. She is a renowned intuitive chef, with a book and TV appearances to her name. Her food is a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach, and she will serve us with delicious vegetarian meals throughout the retreat, and will also be doing a demonstration in Prince Hall’s fabulous kitchen, so that you can go home with the ability to reproduce some of her culinary masterpieces.
Sal will happily accommodate any dietary requirements (we will discuss this with you when you book.) Your body will thank you for nourishing it properly!
Coaching around Alcohol
The coaching on alcohol will be the ‘main event’ of this retreat, with the aim of putting alcohol firmly and permanently behind us as well as on creating a life that you don’t want to escape from.
The coaching will be based on This Naked Mind’s successful method, and each day there will be three to four hours of group coaching around alcohol and self-compassion. This will be highly interactive and may involve working in pairs as well as with the whole group.
During the course of the retreat, each delegate will also receive two hours of one-on-one coaching around alcohol.
Your coaches will be Tabbin Almond and Anna Donaghey. Tabbin is a Certified Senior Coach with This Naked Mind and a Certified Gray Area Drinking Coach, and Anna is a Certified Coach with This Naked Mind. Both Tabbin and Anna struggled with alcohol themselves and went through programmes with This Naked Mind to become alcohol free, before undertaking the training to become certified coaches. They know each other well, having worked together for a decade in their previous lives in advertising. They both held senior positions and have first hand experience of the shame and anxiety that accompanies trying to hide the reality of having a problem with alcohol. Crucially, they can also both vouch for the wonders of a life lived alcohol-free!
Daily Exploration of Self-Care Practices
Self-care means looking after ourselves, physically, mentally and emotionally. And that can be difficult with all the stress of day-to-day life.
Each day during the retreat, you will experience a different aspect of self-care, led by an expert in the field. These sessions will help you discover the benefits of the practice, show you how to do it, and give you practical tips for how to incorporate the practice into your daily life.
You will be inspired by experts in:
- Nature - Walking on Dartmoor, taking in Bronze Age monuments
- Nutrition – demonstration from our chef
- Creative writing and journalling.
What people have said about Tabbin and Anna
“In my mind I was ready to stop drinking, but it wasn’t happening. Tabbin helped me to get going and get through the all-important first month. I felt very nurtured, and that I was being heard. It is so rare for someone to genuinely ask how you are and really listen to the answer - that is such a good feeling. I can’t see myself going back to drinking, but if I felt I might, I know that I could contact Tabbin and she would have my back .”
- Gina (Australia)
"Anna has a pragmatic and empathic approach to coaching, and she manages to weave some humour in there too which helps when tackling some heavy and deep topics at times! She has such a lot of knowledge, and practical and emotional ways of helping which I have found so useful. I would highly recommend working with Anna if you want to lookat your relationship with alcohol. She is an excellent coach who will put you at ease, and you will definitely feel ess alone being able to talk to someone who has her own jounrey with alcohol. Anna is a star and I cannot thank her enough for all her help. "
- Tracy B
"In out coaching sessions, Anna was able to help me see the things that were holding me back. I became aware of how I was thinking, and Anna helped me challenge my negative thoughts to create more productive outcomes. I felt at ease with Anna and loved that she took the time to listen, without judgement, and point out the areas where I was stuck. It was great that Anna shared so much of her story too, which made me feel like I wasn't alone and that achieveing my goals was possible."
- John L
"Working with Tabbin has been a very positive experience. I have appreciated how freely she shares from her past personal relationships and professional experiences, and how she currently uses various strategies to remain joyfully AF. I appreciate her compassion, but also her challenging nature, which I believe builds confidence and offers the "nudge" that I will continue to need moving forward on my path. I have appreciated the small "assignments" we discuss and agree upon ... giving me concrete steps through short readings, activities, acts of self-care, and boundary setting. I look forward to continuing this work with her "in my corner"! "

Creative Writing and Journalling with Sally Page
Everyone has a story to tell and it is through our stories that we make sense of the world around us. Sally Page, author of the bestselling novel, The Keeper of Stories, will explore how journaling and unleashing creativity can help remove blockages within the subconscious, enabling us to make sense of our lives and the challenges we face. Sally will share her own experiences with you and introduce you to some practical exercises that can form part an on-going programme. And it is never too late to start – Sally’s debut novel was released when she had just turned sixty.

Daily Walks with Tabbin
Tabbin will lead a morning walk for anyone who would like to join her. These walks will give you the chance to tune into nature first thing in the morning, to meditate and to practice gratitude.
Dartmoor is a spectacular place, designated one of England's six National Parks. All across Dartmoor you will see granite boulders and granite outcrops (known as 'tors') on top of hills. The rocks on the ground are often used for building walls, as is the case at the now-deserted Teign Head Farm, where this photo was taken. You will see wild ponies, as well as sheep and cattle all across the moor.
Tabbin was brought up on Dartmoor and has a deep love of this wild and beautiful place.
This is designed be a small, intimate and intensive retreat
WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
"I have recently landed what feels like my dream job, and my partner and I are relocating to an area of the country that we absolutely love. This feels like such a positive new chapter, and I really don’t think I could’ve done it without all Tabbin’s help and support. I am extremely grateful."
Anna is a brilliant coach. Her ability to help you get to the "heart" of the issue which is often lying somewhere deep in your subscious is excellent. Her active listening, empathy and pertimnent questions support you to unlock a place of hope, changing thought patterns, beliefs and ultimately behaviours.
