About Us

Life Right is a team of innovative and forward-thinking wellbeing practitioners who believe brain, body, and mind can work together in harmony to create longevity, good health, quality of life and happiness and that disease, injury pain and disability happen when there is an imbalance in this harmonious relationship.  Using their considerable knowledge, clinical expertise and experience, our team will work with you to resolve any emotional or physical issues that are preventing you from being as well as you can, or would like to be.

Our health Retreats are ideal for anyone suffering from anxiety, depression, stress, chronic pain, injury, weight issues, relationship matters, focus, motivation, and self-confidence.  Our scientifically structured programmes combine the essence of wellbeing and happiness principles with mind-control, physical excellence, personal insight, education, learning, activity, breathing, relaxation, mindfulness, meditation, detox, cleansing, and nutrition.

Leading our team is Lilly Wickham, a Clinical Trauma Psychotherapist and holistic practitioner fully experienced in a wide range of emotional, psychological and behavioural therapies including psychotherapy, NLPt, CBT, hypnotherapy, EMDR, narrative therapy, timeline therapy, brief solution-focused therapy, attachment therapy, couples counseling, family therapy and wellbeing.

Lilly is often called upon to lecture in commercial, voluntary and academic environments (including at Oxford) and has used her industry-informed skills and experience to put each Retreat together.  She is joined by Dr. Ian Wright (DC) who complements the holistic approach with his knowledge, experience and education in chiropractic, bodywork, rehabilitation, dynamic neuromuscular techniques, acupuncture and sports performance.  Together Lilly and Ian devise a programme that is individual and personalised to take you forward through physical and emotional blockages. They will also coach, treat, encourage and support you towards being the very best that you can, thus helping you to live a long, active, dynamic, happy and blessed life.

Lilly and Ian are joined by a team of holistic individuals who offer other therapies and treatments to complement your wellbeing journey.

Whilst each Retreat seems very relaxed, it is highly structured to deliver the best results for the small groups chosen to attend.  Within that structure is a flexibility and dynamism to steer the programme in the necessary direction to meet the evolving needs of those on our Retreats.  This is achieved through one-to-ones with our lead practitioners, daily interaction, journaling and interactive workshops.

Established in 1999, Life Right has changed the lives of countless people, some of which have traveled from as far as Dubai, Hong Kong, Canada, Europe and the US to benefit from our Team’s expertise.

We pride ourselves on our Retreats being held in a private, safe and inspiring locations, completely free from any outside distractions or interruptions, allowing you to focus fully on yourself and your treatment pathway.

When you book on a Life Right Retreat, not only do you get an initial consultation from our health professionals, but you are also fully looked after by our dedicated support team who will build your own personal login page, answer any questions you have and arrange every step of your travel arrangements for you.  In short, you couldn’t be in better hands from the moment you book.

Why not take a moment to listen to some of our previous Retreaters and what they had to say about their Life Right Retreat experience.

As one Retreater recently said “I cannot imagine anyone coming off of a Life Right Retreat and not feeling 10 feet tall”

Erling is our yoga teacher for our UK Retreats.  He started teaching in 1996 and works in conjunction with Lilly’s structure of wellbeing, less focused on posture work, rather letting the body find its natural way into functional movement that suits the individual.

On our overseas health Retreats, Rupi is responsible for creating a range of unique flavour-packed meals using organic whole foods.  Fusing an ‘East meets West’ variation on Lilly’s specially designed recipes, the result is a taste explosion which is very much looked forward to, as our Retreaters sit down for meals on the terrace or the feature-packed dining room

Jenny produces the healthy and delicious recipes created by Lilly just for you on the Retreat.  Jenny is often called upon to cook for Lady Gryls (Bear’s mum) as well as Colin Firth and Peter Crouch when their families come to the island.  All of the recipes are taken from a range of delicious whole-food meals featured in Lilly’s recipe book for a healthy life

Shani is our nurse and phlebotomist, so if blood tests are required, she is the lady to quickly and painlessly relieve you of ‘nearly an armful’ (for those old enough to remember the sketch!)  Shani also helps the team behind the scenes provide an integrated experience for those lucky enough to be a part of the Retreat.
