Trancescend Therapy Holidays Thailand
After just a two hour drive, North of Bangkok, on route 340, lies a way of life untouched by Western civillisation.
The low river plains and small mountain ranges of Suphan Buri Province, literally translated, The City of Gold is, as peaceful, tranquil and relaxing as you can get.
This historical and cultural city sits on the edge of many great lakes such as Krasaew. With not a westerner in site, its small surrounding population of Thai farmers are more than gracious, caring and hospitable Buddhist hosts.
The City of Gold, was named by King Khun Luang Pha Ngua but was founded some time before in 877-822. There have been many battles with the neighbouring Burmese over the past years, as it was an important border city.
Steeped in centauries’ old Buddhist tradition, its sleepy existents remains one of the unspoilt hot spots, to soak in centuries old rural Thai culture.
Whether its relaxation, a brake away or dealing with more extreme forms of stress and anxiety; Suphan Buri has it all.
This is not a place that is in a hurry, ‘we are literally waiting for the crops to grow’. The roads chequered with small farm dwellings, local Thai restaurants and canopied stalls, that slowly barbeque the days catch and harvest.
You start to notice, there’s not a car or motorbike insight and, as you round the many bends to admire the Buddhist temples, set into the rolling mountain ranges, you become aware of the origin of its name.
For me, the Gold, is in the relaxation of the culture. Small families swing in hammocks and share a multitude of the vast number of crops that cover the sun drenched plateaux.
You pass by the many local fisher men, that sit quietly with their rods, observing the gentle currents from there long boats. And before you know it, you have arrived at any number of remote locations that can cater to your many limber needs.
Trancescend Therapy holidays Thailand, empower our clients through a person centred and flexible approach.
We work together with the client to deliver a mixture of relaxation, Counselling and psychology with clinical hypnotherapy, tailored to suite our client’s needs.
Trancescend Therapy Holidays Thailand is set in 5,358 acres of rural Thailand. Here, you are encouraged to submerge yourself in centuries’ old rural culture and Buddhist philosophy whilst, visiting the many temples lakes and markets.

Lets look at what therapy has to offer!
Your therapy begins before you arrive, as you begin to fill out some easy questionnaires. These allow our staff to be fully prepared for your arrival, so you can just relax and feel the benefit of your preferred comforts.
Are team are waiting at the airport on your arrival. So, from the minute you arrive you can be assured of a no fuss transfer to the resort.
From food to accommodation and the day’s activities our dedicated staff with, over 20 years’ experience, will be already getting a feel for what will suite you best. Our therapists will also use these questionnaires to start working alongside our staff to incorporate the many different holistic therapies into your day to day activities.
So, you can experience first-hand, the integrated application of therapy, for your preferred goals, whilst soaking up the rural atmosphere of Thai country life.
There will be plenty of down time for you to relax whether on the lake, in the swimming pool, exploring down town, Den Chang and Suphan Buri or, just in the hotel emailing friends with pictures of your new experiences; you will be in safe hands.
A mobile telephone will be provided on arrival with a direct line to your personal assistant and team organiser. A direct line will also be provided for your therapist, who is just a few minutes ride away, if needed, when enjoying some down time.
Our therapists use both person-centred and psychodynamic integrated therapy. Depending on your needs, our therapists also integrate a cognitive behavioural and clinical hypnotherapeutic approach and psychological education, amongst a few counselling traditions.
So what does all that psycho babel mean, I here you cry? No problem, let me explain in some simple terms.
Person Centred Therapy
Client-centred or person-centred therapy is a counselling approach that recognises the importance for the client to take an active role within his or her own therapy. Here you are encouraged to take your own direction of empowerment supported by the therapist.
The aim is to try to keep you in the present so to clarify your insights and promote self- independence and positive internal recognition, without, heavily relying on social networks that, at times can lower your self-esteem. Person centred therapy allows clients to boost self-esteem and confidence. Our therapists will promote an understanding, empathetic and honest approach to whatever may trouble you, allowing you to become the expert to your own integration of fulfilling relationships and expression of true feelings. A useful part to this therapy incorporates assertive training, which allows you to negotiate and attain psychological well-being in a manner that suggests, you are a, confident and adaptive individual.
This technique is great for overcoming those tiresome work colleagues or those energy drainers who we meet on a day to day basis. During your stay with us, you’ll easily begin to focus more, on your present, whilst experiencing the day to day activities and notice, the expectation of western culture sliding away. A perfect environment for life changing experiences! I’m sure you will agree!
A Psychodynamic approach offers the tradition of psychotherapy over a shorter period of time and, is often more intense hence, integrating a person centred approach to support your exploration of past experiences. These past experiences form patterns of emotional content that are linked to fixed ways of behaving whilst in similar situations within the present or the future experiences. Whether these patterns are still conducive to the present experience, or not, we tend to keep on using the same pattern. Psychodynamic therapy helps us pin point where these patterns originated so we can make sense of them, work through them and, make changes in order to overcome them.
Psychological education is simply suggesting, to ourselves, social and developmental theories that have proven, specific variables, that can be linked to certain personality traits or behaviours.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
Our therapists use an integrated style and mixture of therapies to suite your personal needs. Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is immersed into your day to day interactions with your therapist.
Here negative patterns of thought or beliefs, morals and ideals about self and the world, are challenged, in order, to change unwanted patterns of behaviour or treat many mood disorders such as depression.
Our team of staff, with your permission, can be made aware of what you might like to work on, therefore incorporating a supportive role whilst on your day to day sight-seeing trips.
And the cream on the cake, Clinical Hypnotherapy
Clinical hypnosis can be used to overcome a wide range of issues, from pain control too lowering the symptoms of stress and depression, addictions, weight control and attachment difficulties, the list is endless.
Our practitioners, if required, incorporate hypnotherapy into your daily sessions. Firstly, hypnotherapy is a deep state of relaxation that can be anchored to your own resourceful states out of therapy.
Secondly, and, something that is covered in more detail in the psychological education, when we become stressed or depressed and out of our present focus of attention, our body is using a particular branch of the nervous system to negotiate the demands of a busy schedule. This fight and flight response can cause the release of cortisol’s that become over stimulated and can cause a breakdown of positive neuro biological messages.
Deep breathing or this mindfulness state, whilst under hypnosis, allows the release of the feel good chemicals that, allows you to remain calm and relaxed.
So, an example of how the therapy is integrated into your activities could be morning yoga sessions, alongside hypnotherapy that, really allows you to develop internal experiences and deepen your understanding.
Thirdly, hypnotherapy can suggestively, alter unconscious patterns of ingrained behaviour that really compliment your therapy and so work on many levels of both conscious and unconscious awareness. I’m sure you’ll agree, now you have become a little more aware of the different therapies, your potential for change whilst working with our experienced practitioners will be greatly strengthened.
Meet the Team
Things You Need to Know
Trancescend Therapy Holidays Thailand, is about as rustic an experience as you can get, we aim to take you right back to the bare essentials that Thai nature has to offer, in order to deepen your therapeutic experience.
So to some degree, there is a small amount of pitching in and immersing yourself within the day to day buying, picking and cooking of the local produce. The degree to which you feel comfortable with pitching in, is entirely left up to you and we don’t expect you to do any heavy exercise, just some gentle guided tours with the opportunity to pick and cook what you gather.
Although you will be, at times surrounded by Thai speakers this is nothing to worry about. Trancescend Therapy Holidays Thailand will supply you with a basic Thai beginners course before you arrive, so you can learn some basic ways to meet and greet people Thai style, ask for things that you may want or, just enhance your knowledge. Our dedicated English translator is with you every step of the way, when experiencing Thai language and will enable you to have a smooth and flowing conversation with some of the local people you might meet. It is truly a once in a life time adventure.
Thai people are amongst one of the friendliest people you can encounter. They really enjoy meeting foreign people and sharing their cultural experiences with you. They love to prepare and cook food, joke and laugh and generally make you feel a part of the family. And, don’t be surprised if you get asked to sample the local Thai whisky and soda water, it’s very popular around meal times. So let go of any worries you may have in this department.
The Thai language doesn’t really have, ‘please’ and ‘thankyous’, it really is, just in the interaction. So some translation or interaction may at times seem somewhat abrupt, you’ll soon get used to not having to explain your every move or worry about offending the people around you. There is not much of a good bye either, because it won’t be long before they are dropping in again. So don’t worry you haven’t offended anybody.
Saying ‘no’ in Thai is deemed to confronting, so just remember to give a brief explanation. So for example, “thankyou (Krap), spicy food is too hot for me to eat”. Mi penri, roughly translated ‘no problem’ is at the top of rural Thai culture, along with, it’s ‘up to them’, or it’s, ‘up to you’, people aren’t easily offended. Take notice though, that shouting at or aggression is viewed very negatively.
Thai people may look small, but I can assure you, they are very strong and don’t have many rules for defending themselves. We have all got some knowledge of the Muay Thai kick boxing culture. Thais can be very speedy!!! So a pleasant and calm manner goes along way and ensures you’ll be well liked, quickly.
