Aequi is for anyone who wishes to improve their mental wellbeing. As part of this journey, we provide our Aequi Mental Resilience Retreat. This is in exclusive partnership with the luxurious Soneva Fushi resort in the Maldives.
Aequi provides a team of expert practitioners focused on optimizing mental wellbeing. We offer a one-to-one integrative service that is clinically informed and focuses on developing mental resilience. Our approach aims to help those wishing to reduce the psychological impact of past stressors or prepare themselves for future challenges and opportunities.
Everyone experiences stress at times in their life and though we cannot always control our environment or fully manage its impact, we can be mindful of such situations. Through developing our mental resilience, we can be better placed to meet any potential challenges and achieve our goals.
The retreat is set in Soneva Fushi, a peaceful and private resort in the Maldives.
At the retreat our clients will be guided by our on-site team to explore their strengths and weaknesses and start learning personalised wellbeing techniques. Our approach can help clients to develop an understanding of psychological concepts that are relevant to them and integrate it with other aspects of self-care. Through our unique Aequi concept we will create an approach that enhances our clients' mental resilience.
Our clients must be 18 years and over but they are welcome to bring family and/or friends (including under 18 year olds). The retreat spans over 8 days with; 3 days of retreat work, 1 day of full rest and 4 days of retreat work. The retreat is open to a maximum of only six clients at a time, with set dates and other dates available upon advance request.
After the retreat, our clients have the option of follow-up with our London team as we recognize the retreat may only be the start of an optimal wellbeing journey.
A mental and a nutritional assessment including routine blood tests if clinically indicated is required prior to the retreat. This will be conducted by our London team. Our clients may also opt to do the medical assessment with their own doctors but this requires discussion and approval by our doctors.
This pre-assessment will ensure our client’s suitability for the retreat and help our team to take the first steps in designing a bespoke experience for the client when they attend the retreat.
The retreat does not provide medical or psychological treatment and is not suitable for anyone who has a current or acute mental illness requiring medical treatment. If our clients require an alternative to our retreat, we will guide them accordingly. Clients will be provided with a personalised plan following the pre-assessment which will also include their nutritional recommendations for the retreat.
At the retreat our clients will be guided to better understand their mental wellbeing through one-to-one daily sessions with our on-site team. Through the wealth of experience in our varied professional backgrounds, our team will work with the client to develop an approach to living that draws on their personal strengths and resilience. We will integrate psychological and holistic approaches to self-care to help our clients feel more able to manage life’s challenges and together think how they can take this experience with them into their lives.
We take a maximum of 6 clients at a time to ensure the high ratio of one-to-one dedication to our clients during the retreat. We will be complying with COVID-19 safety measures for our clients and our team. Our on-site professionals will include a psychiatrist, a psychotherapist and a yoga teacher. The rest of the team will be available virtually should it be required; for example our nutritionist may suggest a follow-up session during the retreat if this is particularly important and desired by a client.
At Aequi we recognize that wellbeing is a continuous journey and therefore our clients have the option of ongoing follow up with our London team after the retreat.
Our team is a group of independent practitioners who have been hand selected to ensure the highest quality of training and expertise along with positive personalities. We will be continuously expanding our team to meet our clients' requirements.
