Therapeutic Mental Health Retreats

At The Bay, we create just the therapeutic space you need to retreat, heal and grow – however that looks for you. With all of the benefits of a residential treatment centre and none of the downfalls, our luxury, single-client facility is completely private and tailored to meet your unique needs and preferences.

Have you been living with anxiety, trauma, depression, or substance addiction?

Perhaps you’re having difficulty coping with work-related stress, relationship or family issues, or a challenging life transition?

Or you may simply need some “me” time to nurture yourself and focus on your needs, a chance for self-reflection and some time-out from your busy life.

If so, a private, individually tailored therapeutic retreat may be just the opportunity for healing you have been longing for.

A Retreat for the Mind, Body, and Soul––All-Encompassing and Revitalising

At The Bay, we offer private, therapeutic retreats that allow you to make positive changes in your life and to heal through relaxation, revitalisation, and self-awareness.

Your therapeutic retreat is a totally holistic experience. At The Bay, we work with you to arrive at an in-depth understanding of what you need, and then develop the best configuration of support for you to heal and grow. Your customised treatment plan is developed by our expert clinical team and will explore all of who you are. By understanding your strengths, and building on them, you become more resourced to work with the challenges you may be facing.

Your expertly delivered, one-to-one, therapeutic mental health retreat program includes:

  • Therapy:

Build Your Own Personal Retreat Program

The Bay's Therapeutic Retreats are based on our model of one-to-one complete care. The comprehensive assessment that begins your program informs the original treatment plan and is designed according to your needs and preferences. Over the course of your retreat, your program evolves as you do.

We understand that the key player in your healing is you. We respect the inner wisdom you hold and work with you to create the optimal healing environment for the wisdom of your body, mind and soul to unfold and nourish you.

Our retreats include your own luxury residence, near the beach or in the lush hinterland, with staff dedicated to your needs. Once we have a sense of who you are and what you may need in your retreat, we hand-choose the most suitable team of therapists, allied health and wellbeing practitioners, 24-hour carers and your personal chef. Your personal details are only shared with relevant team members, on a need-to-know basis. All Bay staff are trained to be sensitive to your needs, guarantee your confidentiality, respect your privacy, and ensure your retreat is peaceful and nurturing.

Mindfulness, Relaxation, and Healing

At The Bay, your absolute confidentiality and privacy is assured as you are immersed in an environment completely dedicated to your comfort and healing. We will do all we can to ensure that you feel rejuvenated, peaceful and balanced upon the completion of your retreat experience. You will have learned many new skills to take with you for the practice of mindfulness, relaxation, and healing. If you would like to continue your healing journey when you return home, we will provide you with a comprehensive aftercare plan that connects you with like-minded practitioners from around the globe.
