I had a wonderful stay at the beautiful retreat in May. I wanted somewhere peaceful to get away from everything at home and that is exactly what I got. I read, did some yoga, went out walking, sunbathed by the pool and chatted to some lovely women. I treated myself to reflexology and reiki and also had a go at chakra dancing. The meals were delicious and healthy all prepared by Shirley. I came away much happier and well rested. I will definitely be back! X

Having never been to a retreat I wasn’t sure quite what to expect But I was delighted with my 8 day experience starting the day having breakfast outside listening to Birds singing and the wind chimes chiming over looking the pool no forced conversation or demanding schedule . Shirley offered and taken up through choice chakra dancing , open conversation, beautiful walks , creativity , treatments on a daily basis and trips out if desired I.e lavender farm . The tranquil setting in a beautiful location gave you the choice to be at peace relaxing , or share in uplifting conversation . The rooms were clean and charming and the food delicious . I enjoyed this experience so much that I would like to share it with my daughter maybe another women who want change ‘retreat..

Shirley's aromatherapy massage was very relaxing and she intuitively chose the perfect essential oils to use. She has extensive knowledge of aromatherapy, which is important as essential oils can be very potent. She is also a lovely person and I felt very much at ease with her. Highly recommended

A few years ago we did a trip to Croatia and at the end we stayed with Shirley and Nigel. We fell in loved with the place! Amazing location close to lovely villages and surrounded by beautiful scenery. A perfect place to have a rest and reenergise oneself. Accommodation was lovely, nicely decorated and with very comfortable rooms. Food was excellent and Shirley and Nigel were great hosts. Such a tranquil place that I am sure we will be back

Shirley is a lovely lady and immediately puts you at ease.

I have received Reiki and Reflexology treatments and enjoyed both immensely.

She welcomes you into her home which is a very calm environment and the treatments are carried out in a very caring and professional manner. She listens, gives excellent advice and you leave feeling the benefit of her healing.

I thoroughly recommend her services.

It is a testiment to Shirley and Nigel, that although I visited Transition Retreat some years ago, I still harbour dreams of returning. I have been to various retreats but this one has stayed special in my heart. I needed to find somewhere totally tranquil to take a friend recovering from a shocking bereavement. This place did more for us than I can even begin to explain. Shirley is an angel and so grounding. Talented in various healing principles. Everything, from the kindness and care we were shown, the wonderful healing treatments, the beautiful immaculate rooms and garden, the chickens and their freshly gifted eggs, the herb garden, the pool, the walks Nigel took us on, the lovely fresh food provided and biodynamic wine, the bespoke and respectful support we were shown to not only relax but also enjoy our time in Croatia - guidance of where to go, extra personal trips with them too. I look back and can't quite believe all the lovely things and good memories we had - even though it was a short trip at a very hard time. I'm sure some things have changed since I went, but if you want total peace, relaxation, beauty, kindness, nature, from lovely authentic people, you can't get much better. This is a retreat in every sense of the word.

I did my reiki 2nd degree with Shirley in 2005. It was a beautiful experience that actually went on to change the entire course of my life! Shirley is an extremely intuitive & healing individual full of love & wisdom & her encouragement was second to none. It’s where my personal journey into self healing shifted from pottering along on a push bike to flying on a jet plane!! I have worked full time as a healer myself now for many years & quite frankly I couldn’t imagine a more fulfilling ‘job’ that exists. To help others find their inner peace, happiness & strength. Meeting Shirley will always be a pivotal moment in my life & I will be forever grateful xxxx

My husband Steve and I stayed with Shirley and her husband Nigel when their beautiful villa was run as a retreat. The villa itself is gorgeous and the rooms are so comfortable and spacious, with views over the surrounding countryside. There is a wonderful sense of peace there and all your cares melt away, within a short space of time. Shirley and Nigel have renovated this beautiful villa to their own specifications and they are such good hosts. Shirley is a great cook and the meals were delicious with a wonderful ambience. They took time to see that we were happy there. Their swimming pool is a lovely way to relax in the sunshine too. Shirley will now be running workshops there and I can't recommend her enough. We have also attended her workshops in the past in England and had a fantastic time with like minded people. Her meditation group was so inspiring as were the others she planned. They are well thought out and I always came away feeling uplifted and much happier. Book now on one of these workshops in Croatia. You will have a great time and feel empowered.

Shirley is the most amazing therapist! The only time I ever truly relax and let go is when I have a reflexology session with her.
