Our Programs Provide Solutions for:
- Stress, anxiety and depression
- Substance dependency
- Alcohol dependency
- Eating issues
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
Our programs are individually designed to treat people suffering from stress, depression, anxiety, eating issues, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and drug and/or alcohol dependency.
If you or a loved one are struggling with the normal functions of life or if you are feeling detached from family and friends, we will customize a program to teach you new strategies to combat the condition, to eradicate old habits and replace them with new effective and sustainable habits. We will apply evidence based proven techniques delivered by qualified and experienced therapists within a nurturing retreat environment free from your current daily triggers.
The duration of the program can vary from one to four weeks depending on the severity of the depression or anxiety, together with the prevalence of drugs and/or alcohol. We routinely turn down clients who do not fit our program criteria or who are unwilling to spend the time required to give themselves every chance of permanent change.
Our holistic programs include one-on-one psychotherapy as well as group based personal development and team building activities. Therapies include, but are not limited to CBT, ACT, Gestalt, NLP, Mindfulness and Process and Topic Group Workshops.
We also integrate personal training sessions and group mindfulness into the holistic therapy programs and educate you about the significance of the mind-body connection. We show you how nutrition and physical activity can help improve a person’s mindset and mood.
