An elite team at your service
Our team consists of practitioners from a broad range of healthcare, therapeutic and bodywork disciplines. We understand that one size or practioner does not fit all and that it is important for both the psychologist and the client to match for the most effective results. We have carefully selected a dynamic group of both male and female professionals that include English, Spanish and Australian psychologists all of which practice a wide variety of psychological therapies.
All are qualified and certified to the highest levels of international accreditation and are considered to be leading professionals in their fields.
Our organisation is headed by the Clinical Director and all practitioners are experienced at treating complex client issues within an integrated multi-disciplinary environment.
This method enables consistent communication, highly efficient treatment and a seamless client experience.
The staff selected to work with you will be hand picked to best meet your therapeutic needs and requirements.
Further selection criteria are applied to ensure a cultural fit. We find that therapy is more readily embraced when the client feels completely comfortable with their practitioners.
This selection process applies across your entire team; from your support staff to your psychologist.

I travelled from Los Angeles to Istana Jiwa on the recommendation of a friend and in my mind, it was a leap into the unknown. I was completely unprepared for how cosmopolitan, competent, professional and caring the staff were. From the moment I was met at the airport to the moment I left I felt cared for and understood. This was an utterly life-changing experience, I never thought I would say I loved going to rehabilitation but I actually did.Maggie, LA
For my sins I have been to a few treatment centres around the world, nothing comes close to Istana Jiwa. I went deeper and achieved more in therapy than I have ever gone before, I made peace with meditation and yoga - both things I have resisted in the past and both I now practise in daily life. I feel transformed, thank you.Rob, London
I went to Istana Jiwa to reset my mind and change the way I was living. Stress had got the better of me, I was partying too hard and I was close to blowing up my career and losing my family. Amazingly I found some like minded souls in the Istana Jiwa team, people who had lived my life in the corporate arena, who understood me and helped me recalibrate my life. I now feel better than ever before, and I even gave up smoking there!Simon, HK
I started with Istana Jiwa in pretty ordinary shape; marriage had collapsed and I was self medicating with anything I could find to suppress the deep sense of despair and depression. The program transformed me – physically and emotionally. I spent 60 days in the program working on finding myself and I left feeling genuine hope and a real fortitude to tackle life again.L, Melbourne
