The first step in planning your retreat is to have a free of charge online consultation with the Clinical Psychologist. This allows you to meet each other and discuss the issues you are facing in a bit more detail. It also allows us to ensure our program can be of benefit to you.

You’re all inclusive CBT Retreat includes:

  • Free of charge upfront consultation with the Clinical Psychologist;
  • Private luxury en suite bedroom;
  • All meals during your stay;
  • 2 hours each day of 1:1 CBT sessions with the Clinical Psychologist;
  • 2-2.5 hours each day of a combination of meditation and mindfulness meditation technique training/yoga;
  • 2 Balinese massages over an 8 day stay;
  • Transfers to and from Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport in Denpasar, Bali.

Our program is hosted at a 5 star resort, providing the ideal for this type of intensive therapy. We are neither a hospital nor a clinic and there are no doctors or nurses at the retreat. It is an intensive, reflective program and CBT requires "homework", so clients spend time outside of their daily therapies on their own to do reading, journaling, relaxing, and the homework that is required for the CBT therapy process. We hold our retreats at a beautiful eco–friendly village resort in the Cangguarea of Bali. Clients can stay at the resort for an All Inclusive Residential Retreat or join for a Day Therapy Retreat.

Please note that we are not a hospital or a clinic and there are no doctors or nurses at the retreat.

Clients can also join us for a Day Therapy Retreat.

Day Therapy clients find their own accommodation and come to the host resort for their daily therapies. Your Day Therapy CBT Retreat includes:

  • Free of charge upfront consultation with the Clinical Psychologist;
  • 2 hours each day of 1:1 CBT with the Clinical Psychologist;
  • 2-2.5 hours each day of a combination of meditation and mindfulness meditation technique training/yoga;
  • Access to all resort amenities;
  • The option to have one meal or all three meals at the host resort.

Yoga classes may be shared with other clients of the resort. CBT requires "homework", so clients will spend time on their own outside of therapy sessions working on their homework, relaxing, journaling and reading. We are not a hospital or a clinic, and there are no doctors or nurses at the retreat. We offer an intensive CBT psychotherapy program in a natural tropical environment that is conducive to healing.

CBT in Bali

Kindness, care and support

Our program is the only retreat of its kind in Southeast Asia, providing an integrated CBT approach with Mindfulness Meditation techniques and yoga. Clients have told us that after much time searching for just the right treatment at an affordable price, there is nowhere else in the world that offers a program quite like ours. We know first–hand the feelings of vulnerability that can arise when beginning new, never–before–tried experiences. Our desire is that our clients always feel secure and supported and we stop at nothing to make that a reality.

Settle in and relax

From the moment you arrive in Bali, you will feel a sense of calm come over you. With the journey behind you – a source of stress in itself for most of us - you can now settle in to proper, dedicated healing time for both your mind and your body. The tranquility of the resort provides an ideal backdrop for the intensive program you will undertake.
