Why Choose Palladium Private?

The Palladium Private program is individually designed for people who are
suffering from stress, depression, anxiety, alcohol or drug dependancy, PTSD or C-PTSD.

We have spent more than 20 years developing and refining our holistic, fully immersive, integrated program that commences with a residential stay of between two and twelve weeks. We are committed to making long term permanent changes for good in people’s lives which requires an equal level of commitment from each guest that attends our program. For long term change to begin, we customise daily schedules for you and limit the distractions and triggers from the outside world whilst teaching you how to really understand the core thinking and beliefs behind triggers and emotional symptoms that lead to unwanted behaviours and coping strategies.

What makes us different from other programs is what we include in our holistic model and the way in which we deliver it. After 20 years and over 5,500 clients, we have a 97.3% program completion rate*. We survey each client on departure, and in the months following the residential part of their program to rate their progress, the program delivery, retreat environment, therapists and therapies, and service delivery. The majority of past clients have successfully achieved long-term change and are now living a life they never thought possible. 99.3%* of past guests were completely satisfied with the delivery and outcomes achieved during their program. 

Our team are committed to providing the highest quality of care which will help you regain your mental health. During your program we guide you through a unique learning process of observation, collection, evaluation and interpretation of information, experiences and beliefs gathered throughout your lifetime, along with the current triggers inflaming your condition. In a sense, you become a student of yourself, an inquisitive learner reflecting on and researching yourself, objectively, accurately and compassionately. Ultimately, you take back the reigns over your condition and take back control of your life.

Aftercare Program

Prior to leaving Palladium Private, our team will sit down with you and formulate a personalised Aftercare Plan that ensures you will be connected with the services and resources you may need on your return home. The Aftercare Plan will address all the areas that have been identified as being crucial to your ongoing wellbeing and success.

Therapist sessions continue via phone or video calls for up to six months after leaving the residential part of your program. During these sessions, your therapist will go over what was learnt and make sure it’s being applied for maximum effect after returning home. This solidifies and supports your new thinking patterns and core beliefs, whilst they’re reinforcing a a new and permanent neural network in the brain – so you become more and more competent dealing with stressors, triggers, challenging real-life situations and emotions. 


Aftercare Inclusions

Our team will spend dedicated time with you towards the end of your program to formulate your Aftercare Plan, which includes ongoing therapy sessions, a pack of customised resources and check-ins with Duty Managers over the following three months.

The key focus of the Aftercare Plan is to engage with local supports so upon returning home, all appointments are made and relationships established.

The Aftercare Plan will be unique to each guest’s specific needs and circumstances. It may include, but is not limited to:

A life-changing transformation
Nobody knows what it’s like to be you (and that’s totally ok).
When faced with a debilitating situation, it can be hard to enjoy a “normal”, fulfilling life. It can even be a struggle to do everyday things that most people seem to handle with ease.
There’s nothing wrong, you simply need a way to get back to basics and rebuild healthy foundations of confidence and fulfilment. As well as learning how to develop a range of beneficial observational tools and coping mechanisms.

At Palladium Private Health Retreat, you can step out of your normal life and focus completely on yourself and your wellbeing. With comfortable surroundings and friendly professional staff, we take a holistic approach to your mental health needs – giving you the tools and the support for a complete life transformation.

Our programs vary from two to 12 weeks, depending on the nature, severity or extent of the condition. The holistic programs include intensive one-on-one psychotherapy as well as group therapy sessions and a range of enriching, holistic activities and experiences each day of your stay.

Therapeutic modalities include (but are not limited to) CBT, ACT, EFT, Gestalt, NLP, Neuropsychotherapy, Sensory Motor Therapy, Mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing, Schema Therapy, and Process Topic Group Workshops.

Talk about anything and everything with your own personal therapist

At Palladium Private, our holistic, integrative approach to restoring mental health is completely different from any treatment you may have tried before. Our qualified and experienced therapists will help you identify and address the core underlying cause(s) of your condition and help you pinpoint the beliefs that trigger your patterns and physiological responses.

The process begins by learning techniques for observing emotions that result when your triggers are activated. We teach that trying to stop a painful emotion is only a very temporary fix and whilst you might make it through the moment, when you’re in a similar situation again, those deeply ingrained beliefs and trauma responses will be activated, triggering the subconscious patterns running your inner and outer world.
The transformational life change occurs gently as you’re guided in how to initiate new ways of thinking and functioning, based on objectivity and reality. We teach you simple ways to stop, change and completely reverse subconscious patterns. By using newfound tools and techniques, we teach you to intercept thoughts and emotions, adopt new behaviours, practice new skills and discover new ways to fully engage with life.
