Finding treatment that works for you

Why choose mental health treatment at a place like Retreat South?

There are many mental health conditions that can affect us. Sometimes it is not mental health problems. Lifestyle or relationship changes, bereavement or physical illness. these too can affect or wellbeing.

Some mental health conditions can cause other problems too. You can be experiencing more than one thing at any time. If you have problems with addiction, for example, it’s likely you could also be experiencing anxiety or depression too.

Seeking help from a professional is one of the things we should do when dealing with mental health problems.

Sometimes the problems seem too much to deal with in weekly or monthly sessions. The idea of spending some time at a place where you can have holistic treatment to deal with these problems in an intensive, daily routine can be appealing.  Especially when the treatment is individual and focussed on you and your situation alone.

At a place like Retreat South, you can change your environment to a peaceful rural setting. Then experience psychotherapy, yoga, relaxation and mindfulness, catered meals, activities to help you create or keep fit and recover physically as wells as mentally.

Obtaining professional and high-quality support is is important to remember.  It is essential that anyone with mental health concerns seeks treatment from well-trained and credentialed practitioners. At Retreat South, our staff comprises highly trained, experienced and credentialed.

Individual therapy is all about you

At Retreat South, we offer individualised programs.  Your treatment is individual too.

No group therapy

At Retreat South your treatment is delivered in one-on-one sessions with our therapists.  In one-on-one sessions, you have one-on-one attention from each member of our therapeutic team. They work with you alone, and understand your specific needs and work with you toward your recovery.

Therapy works as a relationship between the client and the therapist. This is called the ‘therapeutic alliance’ and that alliance is strongest in individual therapy.

This way the treatment best suits your own specific needs and reasons and pace.

Because working one-on-one with your therapist, you control the pace of your recovery too. The focus is on you alone and working with you to find the best paths to your recovery.

This way you have a greater opportunity to strengthen the therapeutic alliance and participate in your own recovery process.
