Why trauma recovery?

Major life events can have a lasting impact on our emotional, physical, mental and intellectual health.

At Retreat South, we believe major trauma and post traumatic stress disorder should not dictate the terms in your life. Our lives are a tapestry of events that can cause us happiness and sometimes, sorrow. Dealing with events that have had a devastating impact on our lives can and do change the way we think, feel and respond to life.

Continued stressors over an extended period of time through to large scale emotional events can create significant trauma in even the hardiest of individuals. At Retreat South, we know that trauma and PTSD can impede your ability to enjoy healthy relationships and cope with life pressures and demands.

That’s why we offer services to help you overcome significant life impacts such as:


  • Childhood abuse
  • Abusive relationships
  • The breakdown of a relationship
  • The effects of violent crime
  • Redundancy, retrenchment and career based rejection
  • Accident and major illness recovery
  • Grief, loss and death of a loved one
  • Military service and frontline engagement
  • The effects of primary carer in relation to compassion fatigue

Retreat South’s focus for trauma recovery is through identifying major life events and issues that have created a dent in your ability to exercise confidence later in life. Trauma is often an underlying cause for addictions, unhealthy and unhappy relationships, and career failure and/or working lives out of balance.

Many trauma survivors have spent a lot of time and energy on compartmentalising and trying to forget the pain of the past. At Retreat South, we believe trauma and PTSD are like a wound on the psyche and soul. Without proper attention and addressing the cause, living a life haunted by such events can limit the potential for a happy, fulfilling and emotionally prosperous life.

But it doesn’t have to be this way.

Dealing with significant trauma, PTSD and high impact life events is not a process of revisiting and reliving the past. It is a process of removing the shadows and giving you the opportunity to reach your goals without the weight of the past.

Recovery from trauma and post traumatic stress disorder is only a call away at Retreat South.
