The life challenges we are helping women with include:

Whether you are recovering from one of these life situations, or you simply feel drawn to join one of our retreats, you are very welcome.

 

Research shows that women in the UK today, from all walks of life, face their own set of challenges. Women are still earning less than men and are in many ways at higher risk of developing mental health problems;

  • Women working in the UK earn on average 23 percent less than men
  • 1.5 million people in the UK have an eating disorder- 90 percent of them female
  • One in Four women living in the UK will experience violence at the hands of a current or former partner.
  • The NHS reported in 2009 that more than one in five of the adult female population experiences depression, anxiety or suicidal thoughts
  •  Research from 2003 shows that eight out of ten doctors said they prescribed more antidepressants than they should, many to women.

Day of Women recognizes the many pressures and stresses that women face.

We believe that every woman deserves the chance to access the coaching, alternative therapies, meditation and emotional support that our retreat programmes provide.

No woman should have to suffer alone; Day of Women is here for you. When you are ready to emerge from your dark times, we are there to provide you with the support you need. You’ll leave feeling more confident, more empowered, more on purpose and living a life that you may never have thought possible!
