For Professionals

Do you have a client who would benefit from a BioPsychoSocial program?

This page gives an overview on the approach we take at Palladium Private and the modalities our psychologists and psychotherapists use during and after a residential retreat stay. Please note, we limit guest numbers to a maximum of 18 to best facilitate group therapies and create a close-knit community feel throughout each guests stay. There are certain conditions/histories we do not treat and our admissions team identify these during our screening process. This is to ensure maximum effectiveness of the program for the client and to ensure cohesion within the group.

1. Is PP a clinical facility? Do you employ psychiatrists?

Palladium Private is not a clinical facility, however we liaise with a network of medical practitioners (physicians, psychiatrists, chiropractors etc.) who collaborate externally with us and support our holistic approach to transformative healing. Our Clinical Lead is Georgia Ray, who can be contacted with any questions at

2. Can you explain your approach to mental health and/or addiction?

At Palladium Private we recognise the complexity of human conditions and the sufferance that comes from feeling imbalanced between our striving for connectedness and the creative adjustments (or coping strategies) we develop throughout our life. Some of these creative adjustments come in the form of substance abuse, anxiety, depression or addictions, which pave the way to remaining traumatised by past experiences and future triggers.

At Palladium Private we take a holistic, integrative approach to treatment. We focus on helping our clients to regain balance between all aspects of their life – psychological, biological, chemical, neurological, medical, educational, emotional, spiritual, financial, social, familial and nutritional strategies to identify, combat and eradicate the root causes of their mental health issues.

The biological side is addressed by cleansing the client’s diet (see nutritional overview), personal training, yoga, outdoor group activities and access to sporting facilities (swimming pool, gym, sauna, magnesium pool, fitness circuit).

The psychological side is addressed by having an intensive course of individual psychotherapy sessions, group psychotherapy, art therapy and mindfulness.

The social side is addressed by encouraging clients to participate in a communal therapy retreat setting, where all activities are promoted as an opportunity for interaction,  connection and vulnerability. This facilitates establishment of peer support where every client starts feeling both supported by other group members then able to support others in their therapy journey. In addition, clients naturally discover relativity with other’s experiences, vulnerability, triggers, challenges and recovery strategies.

3. What models of psychotherapy do you find effective?

The psychotherapists at Palladium Private are skilled in the application of many different therapeutic modalities and approaches; Psychodynamic approach, Gestalt, EFT, NLP, CBT, ACT, SCHEMA therapy, Neuropsychotherapy, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Attachment Based Therapy etc. Therapists choose which modalities will be used to better meet the client’s potential for transformation. The Communications group psychotherapy follows principles of the Gestalt process group.

4. What aftercare / follow-up do you provide?

Each client spends two dedicated hours with one of our Duty Managers in the lead-up to their return home, formulating a customised Aftercare Plan to best set them up for reintegration into their life at home. (For full details and inclusions, please see “Our Program“ and scroll down to the Aftercare section). The client and their psychotherapist will then arrange a calendar of telephone or video sessions (for a total of 4 hours, usually delivered in 8 x 30 minute session) in which the client will continue to be supported in implementing the awareness/knowledge/strategies & tools acquired during their residential stay. Duty Managers will also have scheduled check-ins with each client, continuing to support them with their reintegration, and forging relationships with local specialists, support groups and therapeutic activities.
