CAT is a relation-based treatment. CAT is a proactive and focused therapy that focuses on patterns of relationships that have become useless or trapped through no fault of their own.

Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy

DIT is a psychodynamic psychotherapy-based, short-term (16 session) individual therapy regimen for mood disorders. It could be used instead of CAT. Both are available at the Retreat.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT is based on the idea that our thoughts, feelings, behavior, and how we feel in our bodies are all linked. We can adjust the others to enhance our holistic health if we properly appreciate them or make important changes to one of them. CBT is recommended by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) for the treatment of mental illness, such as panic attacks, OCD, and depression as well as post-traumatic stress disorder and other mood disturbances. CBT can help with a variety of other issues, such as weariness and pain, sleep problems, and anger.

Compassion Focused Therapy

CFT is founded on notions about what it means to be a human person, as well as the pain that comes with it. CFT can help with our tendencies to criticize and shame ourselves in particular. Its goal is to help us comprehend the origins of these feelings and to strengthen our ability to be sympathetic and kind to ourselves. Outside of treatment sessions, there is a strong emphasis on contemplation and practice. Knowing and feeling emotions, as well as de-shaming emotional reactions, will be part of the therapy sessions.

Counseling

Counseling is a broad term that encompasses a variety of treatments. It can help you feel heard and understood by providing words where words were previously lacking and allowing you to express your thoughts to better understand your difficulties and enable you to make healthier choices. It might be short or long term, and it will be determined by your issues and choices.

Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR)

Over the years EMDR has proven to be a successful treatment for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). “Dual stimulation” is an important part of EMDR therapy. The psychotherapist will utilize sounds, taps, or flashes, and you will be asked to move your eyes in response. While simultaneously focusing on the sounds, tapping, or lighting, you pay attention to memories, current triggers, or predicted future experiences.

Integrative Therapy

Integrative therapy combines various and complementary treatment approaches based on shared beliefs. Therapy is specifically customized to you and your current problems. Integrative therapy is founded on the idea that having a clear understanding of psychotherapy across a variety of models allows therapy to be adapted to the individual. At the luxury high-end retreats, it will always be discussed as per your interests and desires and your therapy will be personalized to your specific needs.

Psychodynamic Psychotherapy

Psychodynamic psychotherapy is a speaking therapy that is founded on ideas of emotion and self-identity. The focus is on observing and bringing relational and emotional processes into awareness, which are typically deep-seated and guide us in many aspects of our lives. We recognize that our early experiences of having wants, being distressed, being acknowledged, and being soothed shape who we are now.
