With one in every four people suffering from a mental health condition in their lifetime, you are not alone. Accepting that you or a loved one need help with a mental health condition is the first and sometimes the hardest step on the road to recovery and the quality of life you deserve. We are dedicated to helping you improve your mental health and quality of life.
We understand the need for a tightly focused program which will assist people who are committed to overcoming PTSD. Positive results are achieved by using a range of evidence-based therapies selected to target the effects of PTSD. Our on-line Telehealth and residential programs provide strategies to help you combat and eradicate the root cause of your condition.
Our 7-day Bali Residential Program is specifically designed to deliver outcomes for recovery from PTSD and to eradicate old habits and replace them with new, more positive, sustainable ones. All therapy is focused on reinforcing essential skills for social integration as you transition for going home. The program cost is kept very affordable and is inclusive of Bali airport transfers, executive accommodation, all meals, 10 therapy sessions, mental health assessment, course documentation and homework sheets.
During the pre-admission consultation, we conduct a detailed mental health assessment to ensure that you are assigned to a program that matches the nature of your condition. Our pre-admissions process is both professional and confidential and is followed up with a confidential one-on-one review when you arrive at the retreat and before therapy begins.
Our clients entrust us with their care while we educate them and change their lives at our beautiful relaxing mental health retreat on the Indonesian island of Bali where our clients feel the pressures of life lift whilst we guide them through their PTSD Recovery Program.

Causes of PTSD
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a particular set of reactions that can develop in people who have been through a traumatic event which threatened their life or safety, or that of others around them.
This could be a car or other serious accident, physical or sexual assault, war or torture, or disasters such as bushfires or floods. As a result, the person experiences feelings of intense fear, helplessness or horror.
Signs and Symptoms of PTSD
People with PTSD often experience feelings of panic or extreme fear, similar to the fear they felt during the traumatic event.
If you are suffering from PTSD, you may experience four key difficulties:
Reliving the traumatic event
Unwanted and recurring memories, often in the form of vivid images and nightmares. There may be intense emotional or physical reactions, such as sweating, heart palpitations or panic when reminded of the event.
Being overly alert or wound up
Sleeping difficulties, irritability and lack of concentration, easily startled and constantly on the lookout for signs of danger.
Avoiding reminders of the event
Deliberately avoiding activities, places, people, thoughts or feelings associated with the event because they bring back painful memories.
Feeling emotionally numb
Loss of interest in day-to-day activities, feeling cut off and detached from friends and family, or feeling emotionally flat and numb.
It's not unusual for people with PTSD to experience other mental health problems at the same time. These may have developed directly in response to the traumatic event or have followed the PTSD. These additional problems, most commonly depression, anxiety and alcohol or drug use, are more likely to occur if PTSD has persisted for a long time.

Why Go To Bali For Recovery?
Reset in Paradise
Our clients choose our premier recovery program because they want to make a significant and lasting change in their lives. Getting far away from the people, places, and things that contributed to an unhealthy lifestyle in the first place is a great way to start. And Bali happens to be one of the world’s leading destinations for rest, self-reflection and recovery.
Appropriately nicknamed, “The Island of the Gods,” Bali is ripe with culture. The climate is tropical and comfortable year-round, the locals are kind-hearted and welcoming, and our rural location provides an optimal setting for you to begin your transformation journey.
Diversity in Culture and Values
Bali’s unique culture intertwines Hinduism and Buddhism, and the locals maintain strong communal values with an appreciation for beauty in all of their surroundings. You’ll find these ideals woven throughout Balinese culture, including the local art, dress, décor, and daily offerings.
Everyday expressions of gratitude for even the simplest things, like a flower in bloom or the kindness of a stranger, creates a sense of calm and joy that seems to permeate the whole island. It’s a special place, and adopting the mindset of the Balinese while being submersed in such a unique culture can play a pivotal role in your own personal transformation..
Bali has all of the comforts of the modern world, including medical care, an international airport, and readily accessible internet. To top it off, it is a mecca for health-conscious travellers offering an array of natural and organic food choices, including traditional Balinese and standard Indonesian fare, rich with exotic flavours and spices, and absolutely worth trying if you’ve never had them before.
Located between Ubud and the east coast, in the heart of the agricultural area which is known as the spiritual and creative centre of the island, yet easily accessible from the airport but removed from the party scenes of Seminyak and Kuta, you’ll experience the real magic of the island while you begin your Bali recovery journey and take your first steps toward a life altering change.
