Pioneers in the holistic solution for people suffering
from depression, anxiety and addiction.

The Fountainhead Retreat & Educational Centre


Mental well-being is an often daunting experience, especially when it negatively impacts on the quality of your life, so accepting that you need help is often the first step.

Our uniquely designed health programs assist people suffering from stress related conditions such as stress, anxiety, depression and mild substance dependencies. Over the last twelve years, we have been making a real and lasting difference to our clients, and we are dedicated to helping you improve your mental health and well-being.

We understand the need for an individually tailored program and we offer an effective solution to overcoming stress, anxiety, depression or substance abuse. Our results are achieved by using a comprehensive range of therapies selected to target a particular condition and our programs combine psychological, physical and educational strategies along with a focus on nutritional elements to help you combat and eradicate the root cause of your condition.

Our Holistic Detox Health Programs for Depression and Anxiety

The duration of our programs range between 7 and 28 days, they are specifically designed to deliver outcomes for a range of stress related conditions. For example, if you have chronic depression, long-term anxiety or substance abuse issues, you will require a longer period than 7 days as you will need more time to eradicate old habits and replace them with new, more positive, sustainable ones. A 7-day program would only provide a foundation for our unique process and won’t allow enough time to unravel the root cause of a chronic or long-term condition. There are no rapid solutions.

The program cost is determined by the intensity and length, together with the type of accommodation. During the admissions consultation, we match the nature of a condition to the best program to deliver results. Our admissions process is non-evasive, professional and confidential.

The Fountainhead Method™

By using The Fountainhead Method™ at our holistic mental health retreat, we educate you on how to adopt new behaviours, apply new skills and engage in new ways of thinking. Our programs offer change that is lasting because of our unique and comprehensive range of proven rehabilitative therapies. We look at the symptoms of the individual and unravel the root cause. The Fountainhead Method™ is delivered by trained Life Coaches and its use is exclusive to The Fountainhead Retreat, we do not endorse its use elsewhere as we cannot guarantee quality or consistency.

Outcomes of our Natural Depression Treatment Programs

Our programs offer alternative solutions, which we are proud to have a very high success rate. We survey each client on departure to rate our program success, program delivery, retreat environment, staff professionalism and service delivery. Many of our clients would recommend our programs to a friend or family member. The majority of clients have successfully achieved long-term change and are now living a life they never thought possible.

We see profound changes in our clients during our programs and some have been moved to provide video testimonials. Feel free to review the testimonials on our website or YouTube.

It might seem difficult to imagine at the moment, but you CAN combat your condition and move forward to achieve a more positive mindset combined with a healthy fulfilled lifestyle.

"The time I spent at Fountainhead is by far the most powerful, eye opening (and confronting at times) experience I have ever encountered. I have learnt life long valuable lessons and the experience has completely changed my outlook on life, how I view and experience others and most importantly, how I view myself and the life experiences yet to come my way."
- Tracey Reynolds

"To the team – thank you all so very, very much for all the catch ups, the chats and the g’days. It made my experience so wonderful and warm. You are all inspirations to me in all different ways."
