There are three main components of our ‘biopsychosocial’ approach that we work on simultaneously:
Evidence Based Psychotherapy – Our program uses qualified AHPRA Registered Psychologists who have extensive experience in trauma, depression, anxiety, mood disorders and addiction. They apply evidence-based tools and techniques to work on the mind to change unwanted behaviours that include but are not limited to; REBT, CBT, ACT. All psychotherapy sessions are delivered one-on-one with each guest. A period of psychotherapy is continued after the residential program.
Life Skills and Personal Development – We provide facilitated communication and topic groups that help a guest build confidence and prepare for the future. Some of the topics covered are; self-acceptance, self-worth, social connection, acceptance of others, gratitude and assertiveness.
Personal development is continued after the residential program via fortnightly on-line webinars (guests have unlimited access for an unlimited time), to help reinforce residential learning.
Exercise, Nutrition, Relaxation and Detoxification – Our program includes a variety of holistic stress reduction and positive mood therapies such as mindfulness, yoga, personal training, nature/beach walks, massage therapy, art therapy, cooking classes, team building and weekend excursions. These therapies are a combination of both one-on-one and group activities.
The combination of these components on a residential program is incredibly effective. Treating the body and mind at the same time is what holistic health is all about. Guests will have the chance to concentrate on their whole health for an extended period of time, surrounded by supportive experienced people that are focused on a guests’ success using natural methods.
Our comprehensive biopsychosocial treatment programs will treat the whole mind and body with a multidiscipline approach.
We also access a wide range of natural therapies and experienced practitioners and consultants to meet this aim.
