Mind management coach Irena-Marie Makowska and Rod Capps came to France ten years ago to follow their dream of creating a well-being centre.
Irena-Marie began her career in PR and media relations after training as a BBC journalist. She has worked in South Africa, the UK and France. After a series of life changing events, Irena-Marie decided it was time to retrain as a mind management coach specialising in physical, emotional and mental well-being. Irena-Marie uses a combination of transformational coaching, creative visualisation, BrainWorking Recursive Therapy, hypnotherapy and mindfulness and works with children and adults, both privately and for companies. She runs workshops on-site for companies such as the Airbus Group and together with Rod they provide retreats and workshops from their home, La Blanque, 40 minutes from Toulouse.
Rod originally from Brighton, England, was a well respected greyhound trainer for 15 years before changing his career to 'trading the markets,' prior to moving to France. Rod is a fabulous cook and enjoys preparing delicious and nutritious meals for their guests at La Blanque Well-being Retreat.
Focus La Blanque is a private retreat and well-being centre located near Toulouse, France. They work with clients across the UK, Europe and the USA, running face-to-face and Skype sessions, group relaxation, company 'awaydays' and well-being in the workplace.
Throughout the year Irena-Marie and Rod provide retreats for Anxiety Management; Weight Loss; General Well-being; Heal and Rejuvenation...
Other types of private retreats are available on request.
