Conversations with Tess
You are invited to join us for an intimate 7 Day Healing Trauma Retreat at my home San Flaviano Monastery, Italy
Tess Hunneybell – Psychologist and Paola Garm – Life Coach
A life carrying a hidden trauma, or an unresolved trauma is still a life being lived with trauma. Deeply buried and sometimes even forgotten your life carries on unaffected, or so you like to think. Issues do creep up on you, you know you could do better, & you know in your heart there is something not right.
Then San Flaviano is for you
We are not about boot camps, and sweat lodges. What we are about is firm yet gentle trauma relieve in a sacred 15th century monastery, in Italy.
Psychologist Tess Hunneybell is well versed and accredited in holding successful trauma release retreats, far before it became trendy. She has had many years of people arriving at San Flaviano feeling heavy, exhausted and not knowing why. By the week’s end they feel completely different, lighter and truly understanding their life is good, and will get even better.
Feel you can do more with your life? That you have suffered enough? Let us hold you and your heart in a safe professional way, while we gently lead you into realising where and how trauma has been appearing in your life. Then most importantly to then let go of the patterns of practice and ingrain new ways to blossom, to grow.
We will always be a small group of maximum eight people. In this way we can be sure that each person will receive enough attention. Our food is prepared locally, organically and vegetarian. OF course life is about balance, so Italian wines, chocolates and coffee are all included.
The dates we have availability are:
Tuesday 31st May to Monday 6th June 2022 (Fully Booked)

We will also dance, play and laugh a lot. When we laugh it changes our brain chemistry that brings us into the present moment making us relax, feel good and connect to ourselves and other people in a joyous way
“I had a session with Tess whilst at her retreat at San Flaviano, Italy, a beautiful and welcoming space with amazing food.
I had held trauma in my body for 40 years and recurring nightmares of the event throughout my life and could never really move forward with any sense of safety in the world. Tess brought me back to that event and changed the scenario so I no longer felt stuck. The session was pretty heavy emotionally, but I felt completely safe and held in her presence. I no longer have those nightmares and very grateful they are gone. I highly recommend staying with Tess, you will receive a very warm welcome and if you get the chance to have a private session with her, do so.”
“Tess is an incredible woman, a wise soul, a skilled coach that can deliver some powerful sessions in a caring a safe way. Her loving, transformational and thought provoking conversations during private sessions changed my lifeHighly recommended.”
