I spent four weeks at Noosa Confidential nearly four years ago to give up smoking. I had been smoking for 40 years. I succeeded!
I once smoked 30+/day, that’s around 1,000/month. I’ve not smoked 46,000 cigarettes in that time. That’s about $70,000 I haven’t spent on cigarettes.
I’m proud of my achievement and very happy with this investment in myself.
Everyone I encountered during my stay and in the twelve months, aftercare had my back. They looked after me when I was struggling to look after myself. I’m so grateful.
The early days and months were so very difficult but every month that went by was 1,000 cigarettes I didn’t suck through my lungs. Month built on month and now it’s nearly four years. Having the support of Noosa Confidential at the start of this change made it possible! Thank you!Discover our substance abuse & addiction treatment program
I am sitting on the lounge at home after arriving home today and reflecting on my time at NC.
Wow-what an incredible roller coaster of a journey that was! Certainly not for the faint-hearted.
I knew it would be difficult but I didn’t anticipate the twists, turns, revelations and emotional discoveries that I would encounter.
Throughout all of my time there I felt comforted, supported and encouraged by all of you in your own unique way. I can’t thank you all enough for the kindness, care and guidance you gave me, particularly during some of the more emotional and heavy days that I encountered during my stay. You are all very competent but more importantly compassionate, caring people who do incredible work helping fragile people through some of the most difficult challenges they have ever faced in their lives. I am so fortunate that there is a place like NC, staffed with wonderful people who take such a genuine caring approach to their work. I thank you all from the heart for looking after me.
I know my journey continues and I have now just entered a new phase – applying everything you guys have taught me in real life. I expect that it too will be a path with further twists, turns, highs, lows and the occasional meltdown. But I also feel like a have a great team of people at NC who I can lean on for support. It is very comforting knowing that there are people like all of you who are willing to open your hearts and minds to someone they have only known for a short time.
So thank you all, and if any of you are in Sydney and need a place to stay or would like to catch up for a coffee or a lunch (carbless and sugarless of course !), please look me up.
Take care people

For the majority of my life, I have suffered from a Kidney Disease which can come and go at any point in time. There is no known cause or cure so you never quite know when an attack is going to occur. Many birthday parties, holidays and lots of the fun things in life have been missed out on due to the disease attacking my immune system. Over time this has become quite exhausting, disruptive and depressing. For years I had tried a conglomerate of treatments both medical and holistic to no avail until I discovered Noosa Confidential and travelled from London to attend.
Noosa Confidential is unlike anything I have ever experienced in the past. It teaches you a new way of being, mentally, physically and emotionally. The NC team are extremely friendly and understanding and work together in the most cohesive way all to help and support only you. Just as we are all unique individuals, not one person's experience is the same. Everything you undergo at Noosa Confidential is tailored specifically to your needs, your body, your mind. Each practitioner from your naturopath and doctor, to your psychologist, to your mindfulness teacher, yoga instructor and even the chef, are all in constant communication with each other working on ways to improve and support every part of you.
I left the program an entirely different person. I left as a better version of myself. The NC team taught me to deal with all the things life throws at you and to be the happiest version of myself that I could possibly be. What's more, they taught me how it feels to be mentally and physically fit, to be stress-free, and to be at one with myself. This is the education we should be taught in school. When in your life does anyone ever teach you how to really live? At Noosa Confidential they teach you how to live but they also teach you so much more than that. No words could ever describe the experience and change you undergo during the Noosa Confidential program.
What I can describe, however, is where I am at now seven months after undergoing the program, and I am happy to say that since I have been through the NC program, thanks to the support of every single one of the NC team from the Naturopath right through to the girls in the office, my disease has yet to rear its head which is a first in my lifetime. That’s not to say it won’t ever come back, and that’s not to say my life is perfect. Life isn’t perfect and that is the key. Through hard times, through good times, through unexpected and unfair times I feel I now have the tools to live my life to the fullest and be the happiest I can be, disease or no disease and for that, I am forever grateful. Noosa Confidential changed my life.Discover our depression treatment program
I arrived trapped in the trauma vortex, I left equipped with the skills and resources to pendulate myself into the healing vortex. I would be lost and stuck without the amazing, supportive, passionate and caring Noosa Confidential team.
I love the individually tailored treatment plan, the emphasis on gut health and the holistic approach. Highly recommend!
I completed the 4 week residential program in July/August 2019, and the 12 month after care program. I went to Noosa Confidential completely broken and as a last resort to treat my complex mental health issues because the traditional medical model had not only failed in making me better, but had caused even more issues both physically and mentally.
I can confidently and literally say it saved my life. The team are all so professional and incredibly supportive. It feels like a family welcoming you in and only having your best interests at heart.Every interaction and session provides healing and resources for you to develop and sustain when you go home.
I have recommended Noosa Confidential to family, friends and anyone who is struggling with their issues. When I look into a mirror now I don’t see who I was, I see someone who is alive.
It was an absolute pleasure to work alongside each and every one of the Staff at Noosa Confidential - hearts of gold! I will forever value the friendships I made and knowledge I gained over the short time I was there; it has been crucial in my quest to becoming the best version of myself. Thank you all kindly.Discover our mental health treatment program
I cannot put into words how thankful I am for Noosa Confidential and their amazing team. The ongoing support they have provided myself and my family is second to none. Noosa Confidential has helped me through some of my toughest moments in life and they were by my side every step of the way and continue to be.
They are a team of experienced and qualified professionals who I cannot recommend enough. I am forever grateful for Noosa Confidential and hold so much love and respect for the whole team.
Had a family member attend the program and it changed his life. We are very thankful for the team at NC.
Some of the most amazing and memorable people I’ve ever met.
Noosa Confidential blew every expectation I had out of this world, absolutely loved my time there and can’t recommend this place enough.
I have worked closely with Noosa Confidential both personally and professionally and I have always had an honest and fair experience. It's not always easy working on your mental and physical health and the support they provide at Noosa Confidential is next to none. I recommend this program to anyone who is looking to make changes in their life for the better. It's worth every cent!Discover our mental health treatment program
The Noosa Confidential team are simply phenomenal. I rang around and spoke to a lot of the other providers and before I even attended I was getting the support and help I needed just to get there... which I did really need because I was terrified. That was 7 months ago. I’ve finished my aftercare and still engage with my team when I need to. They literally saved my life.
Can't recommend highly enough. My adult child attended for 6 weeks after many attempts to get well and clean on his own. We were desperate and the Noosa Confidential team were amazing. We were kept informed and included along the way and they helped our family as much as they did our child to heal and get well and learn to support each other. Highly recommend.Discover our alcohol treatment program
Attended in Feb 2018 alcohol and depression. Completed 4 week residential then had ongoing support. Wanted to wait to fill in a review because although I felt the best I had in years when I left I wanted to see if I could maintain it and if they stuck to their word re aftercare support.
I did struggle a few months down the road but they answered every time I called and I kept up with my scheduled sessions and now almost a year later I feel confident in saying, these guys are the real deal. They care. They hold you accountable and they know they’re stuff.
