  • Description


    My name is Sorrell Robbins, I am a Herbalist, Shamanic Practitioner, healer, Hypnotherapist and I run a therapy centre from my home in Margate, just a few minutes walk from the beach. We are evolving our therapy centre as an eco-retreat.

    I have a family, a partner, a 7 year old son and 5 year old daughter and a friendly family dog called Luna. We all love spending time in nature, making art, and going on adventures together.

    We moved to Margate to create a seaside garden eco retreat from scratch in an urban site with a lot of rubble. We have made a great start - but we still have lots of fun projects to get on with including:
    clearing the garden of old hedges,
    digging up the rubble,
    creating a magical healing garden and retreat space.

    Our home also needs lots of improvements - so there is a a mix of creative and building projects ongoing at all times. We also have 2 young kids and busy working lives.

    So in summary we would like some strong, hardworking people, ideally with some experience of decorating or gardening would be very helpful. And a person who is confident so they can go out and make new friends here if needed or a couple as we are unable to socialise very much with our busy lives.

    In return we offer you a very good diet, clean, organic food, a warm place to stay and a loving smiley family (and dog) to hang out with.

    What else ...

    Margate is a fun place to visit - for holidays or as a cultural experience with many art galleries, renowned restaurants and beautiful beaches. It is easy to get in and around using buses locally and in and out of London via a fast train line. We are also closely linked to Canterbury a busy university town.
