Anywhere retreats

Healing practices

Lead a life of optimal health & inner wellbeing from wherever you are.

We run online retreat programmes based on food, soul healing, and a mind-body practice.

Our programmes are made up of three core components, each more powerful than the sum of its parts.

Food map

Understand your food habits 

Learn more

Food is not only for energy, it is to be enjoyed. But this doesn’t mean it needs to be overcomplicated!

We take a balanced approach towards nutrition and guide you in the pursuit of a healthy relationship with food. To us this means understanding where and how the food we eat has got to our plate. Learn to cook with love and create dishes that will not only taste great, but more importantly will help you achieve optimal health.

Wellbeing classes

Exercise patience

Learn more

Release any stagnant energy by strengthening the connection between mind and body within a series of our Inflow classes. Here we really explore which tools and practices are best suited to your personal goals. At Val & Fred we incorporate different tools into our classes such as breathing and chakra healing, elements of Qigong, meridian stretching, yoga flow and meditation during our live classes.

This will help you to accumulate new energy and stimulate optimal health and wellbeing.

Unleash your uniqueness

Learn more

Healing is a multi-layered, non-linear journey full of personal revelations and self-discovery. This is why no two programmes at Val & Fred are the same; sessions are 1-2-1 while we use verbal and physical tools to untangle any self-constructed constraints which may be preventing you from growth.

We will work together in clearing your path from anything holding you back, and guide you in connecting with your inner truth and healing. This way the process remains organic as we support you in making decisive, purpose-driven change.

Our story

Part 1: Where we began

Once upon a time, there was a holistic center in sunny Brighton, John Harris known as Fred was a regular member there. He realized that the practice he was learning was improving his lifestyle, his thinking, and his work.

One spring day a young woman came through the door, Valentina suddenly felt strong energy emanating from the center and she was definitely keen on starting the practice as well.

That’s where Val and Fred met, and after years of training, they both became Masters and Teachers of that discipline.

Part 2: The journey of learning

The more Val and Fred trained and worked together the more they realized their values and ways of teaching were very different but with similar goals, a spiritual evolution was occurring in both their lives. One day when the time was right, they would join forces and put their skills together to create a new alternative holistic approach to wellbeing. At this point, they just weren’t sure what it might be.

Part 3: A change of events

Val was temporarily back in Rome, the city where she was born, but she was feeling that the creative connection was leading somewhere; her gut told her to get herself a one-way ticket back to Brighton.

The two of them made the perfect working partnership, the Yin and the Yang of an ongoing creative process. They both knew they should work together, training, teaching, and developing. It took time to see how they could put their gifts together creating something new, something more than the sum of each of their individual talents.

Part 4: The birth of Val & Fred

The Val & Fred Factory was born from a strong intuition, and finally was coming true.

With the support of their community of like-minded people who wanted to improve their life outcomes, Val and Fred never stopped believing in the potential of creating a new direction for spiritual expansion.

Part 5: Fred

Fred had many years of experience working in the food business. Developing his skills, not just in how to cook but why people eat the way they do, even when it is harmful to their health and wellbeing. He wanted to be able to share this knowledge and train clients how they could eat better, be healthier, happier, and use this new-found knowledge mixed with physical practice, meditation, and healing.

Part 6: Val

Val’s work in social inclusion, human rights, communities, and cinema led her to embark on a journey in different yoga practices, QiGong, healing hands, and multidimensional healing to unleash her Soul language’s gifts and being able to share healing pathways for clients to navigate their emotions with ease and resolution: a path for self-discovery.

Part 7: Where we are today

Val and Fred are most curious about the hidden force behind everything, which is Energy. The perfect foundation to start a new business venture using food and soul mapping to create conscious living.

This journey isn’t finished yet, Val and Fred are both involved in more training to provide high-quality teaching for their community.

But most importantly, their knowledge, experience, and expertise would mean nothing without their capacity to work together to obtain more and more powerful results on healing and nutrition.
