An intensive Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) retreat program for depression and anxiety and a range of mental health issues.

Depression & Anxiety Retreats is an intensive Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) retreat program based in Bali and Cyprus. Therapy is provided by Clinical Psychologist Dr. Jeremy Alford, PhD who has over 25 years experience treating a range of mood and anxiety disorders. Our retreats are intensive, offering 1.5 hours each day of 1:1 CBT with Dr. Jeremy.

We use CBT at the core of our program as it is the recommended frontline treatment for depression and anxiety plus other mental health conditions (NICE Guidelines, UK). Where appropriate, Dr. Jeremy uses other clinically proven modalities as part of the treatment plan.

Daily personalized yoga and meditation sessions serve as the perfect adjunct to the intensive CBT you will be doing. Both are proven to help improve mood and will serve to calm your mind throughout your retreat.

We offer an upfront free-of-charge online meeting with Dr. Jeremy so you can meet and discuss the issues you are currently facing. There is no obligation to come along to our retreat program after speaking with Dr. Jeremy.

Whether you have had therapy before or are thinking of starting for the first time, our retreats are personalized and focused, specific to your own needs. You are able to do a course of therapy over days rather than months. We see only one client at a time at our retreats and we generally recommend a minimum stay of ten days (which provides 20 hours of CBT over the period).

Psychotherapy in paradise

Why are Depression & Anxiety Retreats so effective?

Though we utilize clinically tested methods of treatment, the environment is unlike any clinical experience you may have had. Our host resorts offer a safe, contained environment — a place where you can feel secure and cared for.

Our Retreats are intensive, healing holidays – the complete antithesis of the clinical, in–patient experience.
