Taranaki Retreat

Taranaki Retreat

Taranaki Retreat is a time out space, a place to leave behind all the noise of life, to breathe deeply and reassess....

Taranaki

We offer: - A no-cost residential retreat space for time-out, hospitality, support, and assistance to those going through tough times. We offer :

Someone to talk to

Sometimes, when really intense stuff is happening for us, or someone we care about (for example, suicidal thoughts), it is unsettling and even frightening. We know how much it can help to talk to someone who will understand. We are available to chat in person, over the phone or even by email if that's easier.

Residential Stays

We support people looking for some time-out and “Space to Breathe”. We offer short stays 5 or 10 nights.

Building Mates

We offer a programme offering the chance to work with our qualified builder who also has her own mental health journey. Through doing, usually making things out of wood, safety and wellness are explored in a number of workshops.

Workshops

We offer regular workshops at the Retreat covering topics such as Anxiety, Setting Boundaries, Mindfulness and Grief. Relaxation and yoga are also offered for those keen to explore such areas.

More about us

Taranaki Retreat is an NZ Registered Charitable community organisation, here to provide hope and support when times are tough. The service we provide is at no cost to the individual, and doesn’t require a specific set of circumstances, a diagnosis, or a GP or other organisation to refer. We know that all of us, at one time or another, need a little extra support and some time out from the pressures of our environment – and a good listening ear.

Finding the right kind of support

We have excellent friendships and connections with many supportive services. It may be that doing careful research as to what’s out there is the best way we can help. Once we know a bit about a person's situation, we do all we can to find what may be available in the area, even if it isn't us.
