Alba Life Coaching

Professional coaching for people who want change and success

Luxury Coaching Retreats to make the most of life

Be the person you want to be
Live the life you always wanted
Take control, be confident, find focus, clarity and commitment
Invest in yourself and partner with a coach who will bring out the best in you
Take time to find out what's right for you and MAKE IT HAPPEN


Why not get away with a small group of friends on a two-day retreat designed specifically for you and your group. The retreats are all about having fun, finding meaning and putting the sparkle back into your life with a plan to make it sustainable. The purpose is to make a big difference to your effectiveness, happiness and wellbeing by taking a little 'time out' for you to regroup, refocus and gain clarity on your priorities. You will leave an Alba Life Coaching Retreat experience with more energy, confidence and clarity.


Take control of your life - there's no reason to wait. Call Sue for a chat.


Ideal for busy professionals and anyone who wants some "head-space" and time out to clarify your purpose in life, know where you are going, what you want, where things are going right and what you want to change, and make plans. You choose the focus for the retreat - see some suggestions below. At the same time, enjoy the luxury of a high quality hotel in Edinburgh city centre or a Scottish Castle in the countryside, pamper yourself and relax in the spa, play golf or indulge in other activities you enjoy.


Discover the power within
self belief and self esteem
life balance
purpose and passion
happiness / positive outlook
mental toughness
emotional intelligence
maintain priorities: attend to the things that matter most
minimise and manage stress


The retreats are designed entirely around you and your group - what do YOU want to explore with your time here. I can make suggestions around some of the topics above and others - just call and have a chat about what you are looking for. A good place to start if its your first retreat is based on "Get Sorted" followed up by more in depth exploration of issues that are relevant to you and members of your group.



  • Group sizes: from one person up to six people.
  • Retreats last two days. Each day includes three hours group coaching activities plus a 1:1 session for each person, lasting 1 hour for up to four people or 45 minutes for groups of five or six people.
  • Includes a 1 hour follow-up 1:1 coaching session after 4 weeks for each person.
  • Includes questionnaires and coaching tools to get to know yourself better, gain insights and clarify your future direction. When you truly know yourself, your talents, your strengths, your passions and your purpose you will be much clearer about where you want to be. We evaluate where you are now, identify the gaps and plan how you will make the changes you want.
  • Can include personal assessments for mental toughness, emotional intelligence, strengths and personality types if desired.
  • Location: in or near Edinburgh and other luxury venues around Scotland.
  • Stay at a luxury Edinburgh city centre hotel or glorious Scottish Castle in Midlothian. Alternatively, choose the flexibility of a spacious self catering flat in central Edinburgh.
  • Dates set up to suit you, depending on availability.
