Fiona Arrigo is internationally acclaimed as a profoundly intuitive healer, mentor and life teacher, acknowledged as a leader in her field.
Fiona is also a biodynamic psychotherapist. In addition she draws on experience derived from the long-time study of ancient philosophies and teachings from other cultures. To this background of knowledge, experience and intuition, Fiona applies a practical and human approach. With the ability to go straight to the heart of a problem, she offers understanding, care, gentleness, patience and humour. In this way she helps her clients to find their way to the truth about who they are and learn how to re-balance their lives. The Arrigo Programme, which attracts clients from all over the world, has a profound ability to bring about real life changes.
In September 2016, in recognition of her personal work Fiona Arrigo was awarded and recognised as one of the top 144 Evolutionaries in the UK by Source TV. In the same month The Arrigo Programme also won England's Best Wellness Retreat 2016, a World Spa Award.
In February 2015 The Arrigo Programme was presented with the Best Holistic Hideaway 2015 at the prestigious Conde Nast Traveller Spa Awards ceremony in London. In association with Healing Holidays, this annual national award highlights the best spas around the globe to relax, detox and improve well-being. The Arrigo Programme was the only UK retreat recognised this year.
On receiving the award Fiona said: “I am delighted to have our collective work recognised; I feel this reflects the understanding and appreciation that healing, well-being and finding deep peace is so necessary in our world in these times.”
Prior to founding The Arrigo Programme, Fiona co-launched Stop the World in 1990, the first alternative health retreat in the UK. Stop the World built a reputation for excellence in its field and Fiona's work became widely acknowledged. From 1984 to 2006 she ran a private practice in London as well as individual and group programmes in Ireland, alongside giving lectures and seminars. She is also a mother of two children.
With her interest in women's health and well-being, Fiona has chosen this year to work with the charity 28 Too Many. In view of her dedication to this, Fiona has received the honour of being made an Ambassador with 28 Too Many, forming a partnership to donate from profits and support their work to end female genital mutilation (FGM). 28 Too Many's primary focus is on research and enabling local initiatives to end FGM in the 28 African countries where it is practised and across the diaspora.
