What We’re Here For

Stress; Grief; Anxiety; Depression; Suicidal Thoughts

We hear you. Taranaki Retreat is a peer-led, holistic, non-clinical service, here to walk alongside YOU and your whānau in finding hope.


I was at my lowest point of my Life, I knew I wasn’t going to survive this time round. If my Counselor hadn’t recommended the Retreat I would not be writing this or sharing my story.

An Awesome Survivor and Mum


I came to the retreat hoping to find the cure all for my problems. Obviously this was not that case as my problems were still there when I got back. What had changed though was my ability to handle the situation. The retreat gave me the tools to grow as a person.

A Beautiful Survivor


 I have come home and put into place an action plan and started to act on it. it has given me the opportunity to re-energise physically, mentally and emotionally and I feel so much stronger. I also came away with a sense of personal balance, less mental and emotional extremes than when I arrived.

Support for YOU

We understand what it is to go through tough times, and acknowledge how tough it is to reach out. We ARE here for you. Through our Portal you can access our Knowledgebase; find out how we work, and ask any questions you may have. You can also keep a blog/journal, and stay in touch with our Care Team / Your Support Worker.

Concerned for Someone?

We want to hear about it. We know that the hardest thing in the world can be to reach out for a little support. Having someone to explore stuff on your behalf can change everything. We encourage you to register and to share your situation, whether you’re a friend, neighbour, whānau member, or part of another support service.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to sign up with your Tautoko/Support Portal to work with you?

Of course not! Not everybody is tech-savvy, and it’s perfectly fine to chat with us over the phone. 

Is my information safe?

We know how important confidentiality is. Our server is secure and your personal data is kept safe. We don’t pass on any information to ANYONE without your consent.

When will I hear from you?

If this is your first time connecting up with us, we encourage you to register, have a read-through, and share some of your story. We will be in touch within 24 hours.

Do you provide crisis support?

No, that’s not our role. We are here to walk a long-term journey alongside individuals and whānau, and to get to know each other well. There are other services here for when things are at acute/crisis levels. Click here to find out more.

How will the Retreat contact me?

We’ll figure out the best way to be in touch with each other. Some people prefer text contact; some Skype or phone; others face-to-face; others through this secure Portal.

I’d like to get involved with your work.

Cool! Please go ahead and sign up, and share your story with us. We look forward to hearing from you 🙂
