Mental health treatment experience is what sets Depression & Anxiety Retreats apart.
CBT is provided by a highly experienced Clinical Psychologist, Dr. Jeremy Alford, PhD who has over 25 years of multi-cultural, multi-discipline mental health experience.
Though he uses CBT as the core treatment, Dr. Jeremy adopts and “integrative” approach, bringing together different aspects of various proven psychotherapy approaches depending on each client’s needs.
Dr. Jeremy also has the following expertise:
This experience translates into our client’s results – clients are experiencing on average a 90% decrease in their levels of depression and anxiety after a 12 to 14+ day stay.
Combining meditation and mindfulness meditation training techniques, as well as yoga alongside CBT for their proven ability to calm the mind and promote positive mental health.
Being led by a highly experienced Clinical Psychologist adds a higher level of expertise to your therapy. A Clinical Psychologist differs from a psychotherapist in their level of education and clinical expertise.
Clinical psychologists undergo rigorous education and training in assessment, diagnosis, evaluation, testing and treatment. During their doctoral studies, they take coursework in diagnosis and assessment, but they also participate in supervised clinical internships.
Clinical psychology deals with a wide range of mental health conditions and physical health problems including addiction, anxiety, depression, learning difficulties and relationship issues. A Clinical Psychologist will draw on multiple therapeutic disciplines when providing therapy, and the personalized, 1:1 format means that your retreat program is designed and developed specifically for you.
Our program is intensive – each day you will see the Clinical Psychologist 1:1 for 2 hours. We recommend a minimum stay of 12 days as it provides 24 hours of 1:1 CBT over this period. Your initial consultation will allow the clinician to determine the number of days he believes would be beneficial based on what you’ve discussed.
