Holistic Therapy – An integrated multi-disciplinary team led by science
Your program of holistic therapy is personalised and created to meet your individual needs and achieve your goals for recovery in the time you have available.
Headed by our Clinical Director your treating team will conduct a full assessment at the commencement of your program.
A medical screen will provide us with a full understanding of any existing medical and physical conditions which we need to be aware of and anything which can be attended to during treatment.
Your psychiatrist and psychologist will conduct a detailed psychological assessment to assist our team to understand the nature of your presenting condition and its underlying causes.
Your dietician will take a full dietary history and conduct testing aimed to identify nutritional deficiencies which can be addressed in your meal plan.
And your physical therapist will assess your fitness level.
From the information gained from these initial assessments and after consultation with you we will prepare your tailored holistic therapy program including psychotherapy, complimentary therapies, relaxation therapies, creative and recreational activities and a delicious and healthy menu.
Your program will treat your mind, body and spirit – we will identify and resolve the underlying causes behind your depression and/or anxiety (and any other issues) as well as substance abuse and return to you the energy and ability to enjoy all that life has to offer free from these burdens.
Your holistic therapy program will be designed to achieve lasting results in the time you have available and also to match your interests. Successful treatment will be accelerated if you are engaged and enjoying the process and the company of the people around you.
Holistic therapy also includes having fun
In addition to psychotherapy and other traditional methods your holistic therapy program will consist of a mutually agreed selection of complementary therapies and recreational pursuits designed to reignite old passions and/or help you discover new interests.
We have a huge range for you to choose from including yoga, meditation, exercise in many forms, personalised nutrition, art therapy and of course any therapeutically beneficial recreational pursuit you are interested in such as art, music, culture, writing, photography, water sports and hiking to name just a few.
If you, or anyone you know, can benefit from talking to us about problems with depression, anxiety, stress, burnout, hypersexuality or substance abuse please contact us. We are here to help.
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
