Why

Hi, I’m Ange.

I started Secret Warriors to help busy women put themselves first, once in while.

I’m Mum to adorable twins and live near the Peak District with my husband Neil. I also work in London and Sheffield.
I know first-hand what it’s like to be tired, and time-poor.

When Ethan and Isla were babies, we survived on so little sleep we felt permanently broken. After two gruelling rounds of IVF, it felt wrong to complain, but it was a tough time. And I know my story’s a common one.

So much so that, after many years and many many retreats, with countless wonderful guests, Secret Warriors is scaling with the help of two fantastic Company Directors – Karen and Shaz.

Secret Warrior (33)

Karen is Derbyshire born and bred and lives with her husband on the outskirts of the Peak District.

She has spent the last 10 years of her career working with local pharmaceutical and wellness company, Weleda UK, and founding the Weleda Wellbeing Advisor Network of 500 women across the UK. This Network is highly trained to give wellness advice and care to their local communities and is now working with Secret Warriors on each retreat.

Karen’s also a certified Nutritional Therapist, Feminine Leadership and Wellness Coach and, with best friend Shaz, is excited to be creating a beautiful partnership with Ange to offer unique, tailored escapes to all who need them.

Sharron’s love of Derbyshire and green fields brought her back home to the UK, after five years in Spain.

She has over 20 years experience in health care, as a Nurse, Clinical Director and Well- Being Recovery Coach . She is also a dual registered Kundalini and Chopra Certified Yoga Instructor, Certified Davidji Master of Meditation Teacher and Ayurvedic Therapist.

After her own journey and recovery from total burnout, she has a deep passion and purpose to create a beautiful space to help people relax, let go, feel nurtured and nourished, and learn about the importance of self-care .

She lives in Derbyshire with husband Nick, their two crazy dogs and three cats.

What an absolutely fantastic weekend !  From the moment I walked through the door I felt at home, welcome and relaxed! It was the perfect couple of days which did exactly what it said it would do…

What an amazing weekend – perfect house and awesome host.  To have everything done for you – food, coffee, booze, tidying up etc, leaving you to relax and enjoy time makes a wonderful change.

As soon as I found out about the Secret Warriors Retreat I booked on.  What a brilliant idea for some much needed me time. My experience has been a mix between going to a spa and a hotel break, with the added benefit of having home comforts at hand.

Such a fantastic, relaxing night away.  It was so well organised and well thought through.  Loved the little touches and personal detail to everything. In just 24 hours I felt completely relaxed and pampered.
