The Arrigo Programme, known worldwide for its excellence, is based on the philosophy of support to achieve deep, transformational and lasting change, from the inside out.

Nothing here is ordinary. There is something about this level of care that sets you on a new path.
— Daisy Finer, as Spa Editor, Conde Nast Traveller

Arrigo Programme retreats takes place in individual, private and secure country cottages in rural Somerset. All our retreats are totally bespoke to meet the needs of each individual and are a minimum of four days.
 

Your personal retreat programme

Following an introductory consultation with Fiona Arrigo, you will be invited to your own country cottage, complete with fresh flowers and fragrant candles. This is your welcoming and warm, personal sanctuary. Your stay with us is treated as strictly confidential. Your personal housekeeper will arrive every morning to tidy and make breakfast. Your chosen menu is freshly prepared for you daily by our cook and brought to your cottage, allowing you to choose when to eat. Your therapists visit according to your treatment schedule.

Your therapeutic treatments can each be 1 - 2 hours long. These may be such as Acupuncture, Tibetan Pulsing, Massage, Breathwork, Kinesiology, Pilates, Psychotherapy and others, curated by expert Arrigo Team Practitioners. Woven in between body and emotional therapy is time for rest and reflection: opportunities to simply stop and regain perspective. All Arrigo Programme retreats are designed and overseen by Fiona Arrigo, even if not always present in person. All Practitioners report directly to her after each session so she can oversee your treatment and how it is working for you. As your Programme is a dynamic process Fiona may make changes to your treatment schedule as required and according to your response to your therapy. Your treatments start as soon as you arrive and continue to your time of departure.

An Arrigo Programme Retreat sets you on the path to recovery and renewal, and we continue to support this after your retreat ends. There is a conversation with Fiona by Skype or telephone after your retreat, as you integrate your treatment and return to everyday life. You are invited to touch base with our Programme in other ways - one-to-one sessions, Skype support, clinic days, workshops.

We are delighted to now offer three levels of personal residential Retreats as listed below.

The cost of the Retreat includes your all inclusive private cottage accommodation with personal housekeeper, healthy meals prepared fresh daily to your menu and Therapeutic or Clincial Team treatments daily - according to the Programme Level of choice. As Programmes can also be tailored according to needs, these costs can be variable.

All Retreat Programmes are designed and curated by Fiona Arrigo.

Level 2   Specialised Programme with Psychotherapy if needed - from £1,790 per day

Level 3   As above with the addition of Clinical Team work (i.e. for depression/grief/addiction) - from £2,000 per day. Night attendance can also be providedif required during these residentials.

Change for Life Programmes There is also an option to choose a more long term and intensive approach to treatment. Change for Life Programmes are bespoke in depth Programmes of typically 7 - 30 days in duration and can be designed as a mix of Retreats, supported by Clinic sessions.

Nothing compares to the bespoke West Country retreats created by psychotherapist and healer Fiona Arrigo, whose burnt-out clients jet in from all corners of the earth to decamp to one of her sweet cottages (prepped with flowers, candles, log fires and hot baths) for some highly focused TLC.

The Arrigo Programme gives you the ultimate gift of going back to ‘you’ - the ‘you’ that gets lost in deadlines, suppressed by ‘priorities’ and buried under pressures. It’s the ‘you’ that silently screams that you have forgotten to listen. It’s a truly joyous journey because you know instinctively that you are going home.
