Trauma Resolution

At Resurface, we've unlocked the secret to healing through the unique combination of surfing, group therapy, psycho-education, mindfulness, and bonding in a small, intimate group. By seamlessly blending flow activities and group work, we've seen profound therapeutic breakthroughs and accelerated recovery from past traumas.

Our holistic approach to healing, which focuses on the mind, body, science, and fun, sets us apart. By creating a safe and supportive environment, we empower individuals to transform unconscious traumas into conscious understanding, supported by a toolkit of positive strategies and a community of like-minded peers.

While our program is suitable for all, it is particularly effective for those recovering from addiction, dealing with PTSD, facing childhood issues, or struggling with a fear of life. At Resurface, we're committed to helping our clients turn their traumas into opportunities for growth and positive change.

Day Retreat - Learned Optimism

Can you learn to have a positive outlook? And if you could, how would that change your life?

Learned optimism is a concept from positive psychology’s founding father, Martin Seligman, that argues that we can cultivate a positive perspective.

On Saturday January 28th, we will be facilitating our first city day retreat of the year. This will include all the therapeutic aspects of a Resurface retreat into day of creativity, self-discovery and self-care.

This retreat will focus on the concept of learned optimism: defining what it means and how to improve it.

Resilience and Flow Retreat @ Soul & Surf Portugal

The goal of our programme is to give you the knowledge, tools and practice to transform your life strategies, in a fun, action-based week. It is the truly unique fusion of the power of surfing, positive psychology and bonding in an intimate group that translate our aim into reality.

This exclusive program is dedicated to understanding and learning the science of human flourishing. It has been carefully structured to maximise resilience and flow whilst acknowledging that we need a variety of interventions and approaches to successfully instigate positive change. Our research shows significant decreases in depression and anxiety, as well as significant increases in change in outlook following attendance on a retreat.

The Resurface programme is primarily based on three evidence based modalities recommended by the American Psychiatric Association (APA), World Health Organisation (WHO) and the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) as safe and effective trauma treatment: EMDR, CBT and Mindfulness.

A detailed assessment and follow-up after-care suggestions are made before and after attending a retreat.
