What The Doctor Recommends

See How Far You'll Go When It's

“Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of the living.” — Miriam Beard, American Writer 

Travel, when done intentionally and mindfully, can facilitate a seismic mindset shift that allows you to gain clarity on who, what and where you are in life. The newfound perspectives gained through exploration, authentic interactions, vibrant cultural exchanges and thought-provoking experiences sparks imagination, forces introspection, builds resilience and reinforces tolerance.  If you integrate these discoveries into your everyday life and recognize that the positive changes do not automatically end after the tan fades,  travel can be a hugely transformative experience.


Your Guide To Prescribed Travel

Our Philosophy And Approach

What The Doctor Recommends is the world's first doctor-led wellness travel consultancy dedicated to prescribing travel to reduce the rising rates of stress, anxiety and burnout affecting the global workforce.


The company was founded with the belief that travel can be a powerful tool in promoting mental and physical well-being, and that it should be accessible to everyone.

At What The Doctor Recommends, we understand that the demands of modern life can take a toll on our mental and physical health, and we are committed to helping people take control of their well-being by providing expert guidance on travel destinations and experiences that promote relaxation, rejuvenation, and overall wellness.

Our team of doctors and wellness experts have carefully curated a range of travel experiences designed to address our clients’ specific needs, whether they are seeking to reduce stress, improve their mental health, or simply recharge their batteries. From luxury spa retreats to wilderness expeditions, our travel recommendations are tailored to each client's unique needs and preferences.

At What The Doctor Recommends, we believe that travel should be more than just a temporary escape from the stresses of daily life. By prescribing travel to promote wellness and prevent burnout, we hope to empower our clients to make lasting changes in their lives and achieve a better, more balanced state of well-being.

We are dedicated to providing you with all the tools you need to disrupt the neverending cycle of overwork and overwhelm; so you can develop healthy coping strategies to manage the work/ life challenges standing in the way of your goals

The core of Prescribed Wellness Travel™️ is to assist you in creating a new pattern for yourself that supports and sustains an ongoing transformation after your trip. Once this model is in place, you will finally be able to conquer the fear and self-imposed limitations that have been holding you back from creating the type of lifestyle you crave and deserve. You will move forward with the belief that ANYTHING is possible.


Think of travel as a spark plug, a catalyst that can trigger ripples of change across many areas of your life, as you journey inwards while exploring the world around you.


And the match needed to ignite said change?



If you are ready to use the power of travel therapy to detox from technology, break the neverending cycle of overwork and overwhelm and build positive life coping skills so you can better manage the stresses of work and everyday life, hit the button below and let's get started.  

“I needed to get away for clarity and a sense of direction in my life. Everything was getting on top of me; my job, a complicated relationship, family life. I was probably on the way to completely burning out or a nervous breakdown before the prescribed wellness holiday to Italy. Dr Noreen, I cannot recommend you enough.”

Meeting with Dr. Nguru was the best thing I've ever done for myself. Her coaching style is firm but very supportive. She gave me lots of anxiety self-management tools and mindfulness exercises to try for the plane ride and since our meeting I have felt more in control of my thoughts and emotions than ever before.

The Benefits Of Wellness Travel:


This is not about self-absorption or self-indulgence, but rather acknowledging and understanding your own legacy, strengths and weaknesses. It leads you to clearly identify and interpret who/where you are, who/where do you want to be. And how to use all your travel experiences to arrive there.


By travelling independently, you develop the ability to find ways to solve problems and overcome obstacles on your own. Resourcefulness involves thinking outside the box and finding solutions that may not be conventional.


As you grow confident in your ability to take action and make decisions on your own, you can be assured that your efforts will result in a sense of empowerment that is crucial to your long-lasting wellbeing.

Our founder's story...

"I was burnout and merely existing -"

Standing at the base of Mt Batur on my penultimate day in Bali, with the early morning sunlight dancing across my upturned face, I finally felt it. Peace, contentment and connection. Connection to the breathtaking landscape towering above me, to the locals sleepily setting up their market wares for the day and most significantly, to myself. With that sudden clarity, I realized that somewhere along the line I had fallen out of alignment with my mind, body and soul's purpose. Burdened with the pressures of achieving career milestones and trying to meet everyone else's expectations of me, I was burnout and merely existing.

That was in 2017.


Looking back, the trip was the catalyst for positive transformation in many areas of my life. And as I began to research the multitude of mental, physical, spiritual and scientific benefits that travel provides when we slow down and holistically explore our inner selves as we explore the world, the foundations of What The Doctor Recommends and Prescribed Wellness Travel™️ were laid.

Today, my team of dual-trained health and travel specialists support overwhelmed professionals and high-achievers in demanding careers, battling stress, sleep disturbances and occupational burnout to connect with the essence of what makes them feel alive.


We provide life coaching using a range of cognitive behavioural-based psychology techniques which, when combined with Prescribed Wellness Travel™️ support our clients to press reset, detox from technology and break the toxic cycle of overwork and overwhelm so they can achieve greater levels of well-being, happiness and personal fulfilment.

If you're ready to explore with purpose and tap into the transformational power of wellness travel,  let's get started.
