UniqueMinds is delighted to invite you to escape from the stresses of everyday life with our exclusive weekend retreat using photography to build your emotional wellbeing and resilience. This collaboration of both therapists with professional photographers as your facilitators has enabled carefully selected activities to facilitate this unique experience.
We will demonstrate techniques using a camera or smart phone which can be used after the weekend to help find calm and balance within your life.

The retreat is open for everyone ranging from keen photographers with advanced camera skills, to those individuals who only take the occasional picture on their phone.
