The goal of our mother daughter retreat in France is to create a unique, adventurous, and bonding mother/daughter experience in a powerful, encouraging and supportive all female environment. Together as a group of powerful dynamic women we will create an environment of support and inspiration to uplift and encourage each other’s personal and combined relationship development.
This 5-day retreat includes workshops on discovering personality and relationships with others. There will be a combination of calm/reflective and high adrenaline/active outdoor pursuits and guests will leave with a better understanding of themselves, their unique mother/daughter relationship and how they can better support each other to be the best they can be.
This 5-Day Mother Daughter Retreat will also include:

As the current director of Power4Teens, I wear many hats - Fitness Professional, Life Coach, Youth Empowerment Professional and business owner. I am happily married to my high school sweetheart and a proud mom to an energetic and sassy girl named Kaiya. I am also a dog mama to our lovable and wild 5-year-old pup, Bruno.
Power4Teens (P4T) is something very near and dear to my heart and has been for about 9 or 10 years now! Charlie was “ahead of her time” back in 2011, with recognizing the importance of programs and created Power4Teens for daughters and families. I immediately loved everything it stood for and jumped in with both feet, eyes closed!
Over the years, we've organized women's retreats, teen leadership retreats (local and abroad), and now we're gearing up for our 8th mother/daughter retreat!
In today’s busy world we do not always feel like there is enough time to take a step back, and to celebrate our special bond with our children. Well, my goal on this magical getaway is to make that happen. Reminding you all how awesome we truly are and how incredible we are together as a team.
I empower youth in a unique and indescribable way, I like to challenge and strengthen relationships of moms and daughters and LOVE to look on the positive and bright side of everything! My two rules of life are to smile… and have fun… both of which I know you will do on our retreat. 😊
Charlie is the founder of Power4Teens and is now living in Geneva, Switzerland working as a psychotherapist to teens and their families. She is a mother of 2 teenage girls, a lover of nature, the outdoors and most sports.
She recently started her new business called Pura Vida Escapes in Morzine, France which provides therapeutic retreats for adults, teens, couples and families. Her passion is to help people improve on their self understanding, improve relationships and connect people back to nature. She says that the increase in stress and anxiety in youth (and adults) after Covid lockdowns made her realise the importance of using nature based therapy in her practice and encouraged her to invest in Pura Vida Chalet.
“Swap a phone or a laptop for a hike and a mountain and you’ll see anxiety reduce in a matter of a weekend . Taking therapy out of the office into nature noticeably accelerates the therapeutic impact”
