Comprehensive Anxiety Counselling

Our clinical team employs time-tested techniques like cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and mindfulness-based cognitive behavioural therapy (MCBT) to help you understand the source of your anxiety, change your thinking patterns and learn how to effectively manage your condition. and neuro-linguistic programming (NLP)

We also use cutting-edge technologies such as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS)  to effectively treat anxiety without the use of medication.

Holistic Wellness Therapies

In addition to conventional therapy, you’ll take part in a variety of wellness practices, such as:

  • Mindfulness meditation
  • Yoga
  • Massage therapy
  • Art therapy

These accomplish a few things: Firstly, they help you to de-stress, feel well, focus and get into a receptive frame of mind that benefits your counselling work. And secondly, they help you cultivate coping skills that you can take with you when you leave, to keep your anxiety at bay and deal with it in a healthy way when it arises.

While you’re at The Dawn anxiety retreat you’ll also have access to our gym, swimming pool and riverside meditation spaces to unwind during your downtime.
