Time & Cost for Treatment


How long you stay will depend on what you need to get better. We will happily advise on the best length of time. The most common time frame is two to five weeks on site. As every person is looked at individually cost will depend on the length of program. Because of the level of care , qualifications , experience and accommodation the cost is substantial and our guests tell us it was worth every cent to get their health back. Please have a look at the reviews and case studies. Non residential programs start at $8959.00.

We are happy to give you a definite cost once we have a better understanding of your needs, circumstance and preference. We are not a hospital and so private health cover will not cover your residential stay but may cover some of the therapy. If you own your own company or think the company you work for might fund a program please talk to us about tax deductibility.

Please call 1800 210 038 for more information.

When guests arrive on the program, we don’t believe there is any one way to take them from where they are to where they want to be when they leave. Different things work for different people and so having qualified staff with a variety of skill sets and a huge amount of combined experience is crucial for success. These powerful psychological approaches are an effective means for finding the cause and changing behaviour.
  • Cognitive behaviour therapy, (CBT)
    a type of psychotherapy in which negative patterns of thought about the self and the world are challenged in order to alter unwanted behaviour patterns or treat mood disorders such as depression and anxiety.
  • Rational emotive behavioural therapy (REBT)

REBT is an action-oriented psychotherapy that teaches individuals to identify, challenge, and replace their self-defeating thoughts and beliefs with healthier thoughts that promote emotional well-being and goal achievement. 

  • Personal construct psychology (PCP)

PCP helps guests to uncover their own “constructs” (ways of seeing the world) with minimal intervention or interpretation by the therapist.

  • Interpersonal psychotherapy (ITP)

IPT is based on the principle that there is a relationship between the way people communicate and interact with others and their mental health and that this can be changed.

  • Narrative therapy 

Narrative therapy seeks to be a respectful, non-blaming approach to counselling, which centres people as the experts in their own lives. It views problems as separate from people and assumes people have many skills, competencies, beliefs, values, commitments and abilities that will assist them to reduce the influence of problems in their lives.

  • Solution focused brief therapy (SFBT)

SFBT is an approach to psychotherapy based on solution-building rather than problem-solving. It explores current resources and future hopes rather than present problems and past causes.

  • Dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT)

DBT is a specific type of cognitive-behavioural psychotherapy developed in the late 1980s by psychologist Marsha M. Linehan to help better treat borderline personality disorder. Since its development, it has also been successfully used for the treatment of other kinds of mental health disorders.

  • Schema-focused therapy

Schema Therapy (or more properly, SchemaFocused Cognitive Therapy)is an integrative approach to treatment that combines the best aspects of cognitive-behavioural, experiential, interpersonal and psychoanalytic therapies into one unified model.

  • Psychodynamic psychotherapy

Psychodynamic therapy, also known as insight-oriented therapy, focuses on unconscious processes as they are manifested in a person’s present behaviour. The goals of psychodynamic therapy are a client’s self-awareness and understanding of the influence of the past on present behaviour.

  • emotion-focused therapy 

Emotionally focused therapy proposes that human emotions have an innately adaptive potential that, if activated, can help clients change problematic emotional states or unwanted self-experiences. Emotions themselves do not inhibit the therapeutic process, but people’s inability to manage emotions and use them well is seen as the problem.

  • Neuro Linguistic Programming

NLP identifies patterns of thoughts, beliefs and internal dialogue, to give guests the tools and skills to effectively remove and reset those influenced behaviour and patterns. The more often someone consciously redirects their thoughts and adjusts their behaviours, the less energy is sent down old neuron pathways, the better they feel and the closer they are to a new state of mind.

  • Mindfulness and clinical hypnotherapy

These modules seek to bypass the conscious mind to release old patterns, stories, cellular memories and associated pain, without the need for rehashing  over or  analysing events and stories. That’s not to say that the significant events and trauma brought with you to the program will not be taken on board and intently listened to, only that once told, guests will not be encouraged or required to relive and revisit these patterns.

  • Forgiveness process 

An important aspect of creating the life you want and being the person you want to be, is letting go of events, resentments, pain and anger from the past. Forgiveness literally means to forego punishment of yourself and others. It’s not about letting someone get away with something, as so many people tend to believe… as if the act of forgiving would release them from condemnation! The person who is suffering is you, not whomever you cannot forgive or whatever event you cannot move past. This resentment is only contributing to stress and other symptoms. The forgiveness process  gives the tools and techniques to apply, to release clients from this behaviour. This allows people to move forward, free from the emotional or physical weight of anger and resentment.

  • Experiential and creative arts therapy

This a form of therapy that encourages Clients to identify and address hidden or subconscious issues through experiences such as, guided imagery, the use of props, and a range of other activities including drawing or painting.

  • Somatic psychotherapy

    Although situated in the broad family of psychotherapeutic treatments, Somatic Psychotherapy is a unique discipline. Soma is a Greek word meaning “the living body” therefore Somatic Psychotherapy adds a significant dimension to verbal psychotherapy by including bodily experience as correlative, causative and caused by psychological experience. It is grounded in the belief that not only are thought, emotion and bodily experience inextricably linked (creating a bodymind), but also that change can be brought about in one domain of experience by mindfully accessing another.A very effective therapy.

  • EMDR EMDR is recognised as having the highest level of research evidence for the treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) by the Australian Psychological Society (EBPI Review 2010). Over 300 studies have been published showing EMDR to be effective for treating depression, anxiety, phobias, addictions, body dysmorphia and other mental health issues.  EMDR has been used effectively with adults, but also with children and adolescents. EMDR is popular because treatment outcomes occur in a shorter period of time than some other treatments and the changes have been shown to be permanent.
  • Brainspotting

    traditional talk therapy when it comes to trauma can only access the front third or the brain being the neocortex or the rational part of the brain, but only 1/3 of traumatic experience is kept in this location and so that is why traditional talk therapy is limited with trauma. Brain spotting is a technique that is able to access the back 2/3 of the brain where the majority of trauma is held. Trauma is held and frozen in the back section of the brain( sub cortical)  as sensory experience ( sight, touch smell sound etc) and brainspotting is a technique that can access it and clear it, making traditional talk therapy much more effective.,Originally developed from a combination of EMDR and somatic therapy the results when used for PTSD have out performed both.

  • Family therapy and family based interventions. 

    Family therapy may be defined as any psychotherapeutic endeavour that explicitly focuses on altering interactions between or among family members and seeks to improve the functioning of the family as a unit, and/or the functioning of the individual members of the family. Every program has 5 hours of psychotherapy put aside to deal with family dynamics.We are happy to put together a separate program to support other members of the family if needed.

  • Mindfulness based cognitive therapy (MBCT)

is a psychological therapy designed to aid in treating depression, anxiety , addiction and eating disorders. It uses traditional Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) methods and adds in newer psychological strategies such as mindfulness and mindfulness meditation.

  • Psychoeducation: 

    Psychoeducation is not a type of therapy but a form of education. Psychoeducation involves the  explanation of information to guests about what is known about characteristics of their existing diagnosis. Information is also provided about medications, and contributing factors.This can be done before or on arrival as the intention of attending is in identifying cause and in doing so putting symptoms into remission.

  • Self Help: Self-help or self care is the process of knowing what you need to stay well and more importantly applying that knowledge to stay well.
 

Trauma or neglect especially in childhood has proven long term effects on mental and physical health. By treating the trauma using these techniques we have seen results that would take traditional talk therapy years to achieve if at all.

  • Brainspotting traditional talk therapy when it comes to trauma can only access the front third or the brain being the neocortex or the rational part of the brain, but only 1/3 of traumatic experience is kept in this location and so that is why traditional talk therapy is limited with trauma. Brain spotting is a technique that is able to access the back 2/3 of the brain where the majority of trauma is held.

  • Mindfulness :meditation instruction and practice to calm the mind and nervous system, this can be combined with yoga for an enhanced result.

Using the healing power of nature and gentle therapeutic techniques, the body, mind and emotions are supported during the healing process. Naturopathic principles are based on treating each person as an individual and treating the whole person, not just the affected area.
  • medical herbalism : (“herbology” or “herbal medicine”) is use of plants for medicinal purposes, and the study of such use. Plants have been the basis for medical treatments through much of human history, and such traditional medicine is still widely practiced today.
