Why Retreat South

Many of the challenges we face in life are like icebergs.

  • Addiction and mental health issues; stress, executive stress and burn out; depression and anxiety; relationship breakdowns – all are symptoms of a deeper unhappiness.
  • Diminished resilience can make all kinds of life pressures become deeply affective events.
  • Childhood abuse, the death of a loved one, redundancy, unhealthy family relationships and divorce- Whatever the case, these kinds of losses take a toll on our well being.
  • If your foundation has been rocky for a while, adding extra life pressures and major events can create all kinds of problems.

That’s where Retreat South comes in.

Our trained staff and individually tailored programs work on all aspects of your mental health and well being. We work with you to identify the issues that trigger stress and unwanted behaviours. And we work with you to build an action plan based on meeting your daily challenges in a positive and effective way.

No more papering over cracks and making do. No more hoping that what works for someone else will help you, too.


Coming to Retreat South was the best thing I have done. I learnt how to deal with the stress created by my illness and how to say “I can’t do that” without feeling guilty. I know now that I can still have a great life, just by doing things differently. I think that’s the best thing I learnt.
