At the heart of the Palladium Private program is a cognitive approach, which means it examines an individual’s thinking patterns and core beliefs that drive unwanted responses and actions. Our qualified therapists seek to modify or change the individuals non-beneficial thought processes in relation to historic, current or future events in their lives. In successfully doing so, this reduces or eradicates stress, triggers and unwanted behaviours.
Starting from early infancy, each child begins absorbing information through witnessing and experiencing the world as they perceive it, then interpreting what people, situations or sensations bring safety and which bring fear or danger. Conclusions are drawn in early childhood about who we are as a individual, member of a family and member of society.
At Palladium Private, we teach that the core belief system – which is unique to each person – acts as the direct platform for our thinking patterns, responses, and behaviours. We refer to this process as the mind-body connection. Not only do we live according to our belief system, but it often goes unexamined or unquestioned throughout the entirety of most people’s lives.
The main conclusion governed by an individual’s unbeneficial belief system is that our life should be unfolding and presenting in a certain way in order to confirm our self-worth. At the point an individual concludes their life path is interfered with, faulty or unattainable, stress begins to develop. Generally followed by unwanted or damaging behaviours, poor personal choices and/or extreme coping strategies.
The Palladium Private retreat setting allows our qualified therapists and retreat staff to work with you day in, day out with no distractions or triggers from the outside world. For many, this is the first time in their life they’ve had such focus and time to work solely on themselves. The relaxed retreat environment encourages the cognitive techniques to work their way into the brain for permanent change – with the impact being far greater than non-residential cognitive work.
