PTSD and Trauma Retreat

Heal From Past Trauma at Our Private, Beachside Retreat

Discover profound healing at our 21-day private PTSD and trauma retreat on the Sunshine Coast, where our trauma-trained therapists blend compassionate care with advanced, evidence-based therapies to transform your life. 

Why Choose A Goodsky Retreat?

Addressing the root cause of trauma is essential for successful remission of PTSD, depression, and anxiety. At Goodsky, our trauma-trained therapists use the bottoms-up processing approach to work closely with you to heal the underlying injury of trauma, not just alleviate the symptoms.

Effective recovery requires simultaneous work on the mind and body. PTSD, depression, and anxiety can take a severe toll on physical health, leading to exhaustion. By achieving physical and mental stability, our clients are prepared to engage in the deep work necessary for true healing and recovery. To learn more about our approach, explore our information on bottom-up processing.

When the right type of treatment and therapy is applied, guests experience significant improvement. Triggers diminish, and the body and mind return to their natural, regulated state. This allows you to break free from the fight/flight/freeze/fawn/flop response and begin the recovery process.

Unlike many mental health retreats worldwide, Goodsky offers a completely private, confidential, and tailored program dedicated solely to your needs. By providing exclusively private treatment, we ensure the most effective and safest care for everyone, including teenagers, with parental supervision and assistance.

The Goodsky Steps To Wellness

1. Initial Assessment

The first step in Goodsky's outpatient care plan involves gaining a thorough understanding of your personal and medical history. We begin with an in-depth interview and detailed questionnaires to explore your experiences and the events that have shaped your life. We review your personal timeline, intergenerational issues, and any past psychiatric or medical records and pathology reports. This comprehensive assessment allows us to understand the root causes of your mental health condition.

2. Personalised Treatment Plan

Following the initial assessment, we create a personalised treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. This step includes a thorough and confidential psychiatric assessment if deemed necessary. Our aim is to help you understand the underlying reasons for your feelings and to develop a plan to improve your well-being. By identifying the root causes of your symptoms we can recommend effective therapies and interventions to help you feel better and achieve a healthier state of mind.

3. Private Pathology Testing

We conduct thorough pathology testing from Australian and international labs. We select the optimum panel to avoid unnecessary testing. Our tests cover:

• Gut Microbiome: Assess for parasites, bacteria, yeast, and fungus.

• Hormones: Evaluate stress, sexual, and metabolic hormones.

• Genetics: Test for MTHFR gene mutations and medication reactions.

• Neurotransmitter Production: Determine your gut's ability to produce neurotransmitters.

Our dedicated team of therapists, available throughout the Sunshine Coast, ensures you receive the support and care needed for your journey towards better mental health.

Understanding PTSD, CPTSD, Childhood Trauma, and Trauma

Goodsky specialise in providing comprehensive care for individuals suffering from PTSD, CPTSD, childhood trauma, and various other forms of trauma. Each of these conditions can significantly impact mental and emotional well-being, and our tailored programmes are designed to address their unique challenges.

PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder): PTSD is a mental health condition triggered by experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event. Symptoms can include flashbacks, severe anxiety, and uncontrollable thoughts about the event. Our retreat offers evidence-based therapies to help individuals process their trauma, manage symptoms, and regain control of their lives.

CPTSD (Complex PTSD): Complex PTSD arises from prolonged or repeated trauma, often occurring in childhood or within abusive relationships. In addition to typical PTSD symptoms, CPTSD may involve emotional dysregulation, negative self-perception, and difficulties in relationships. Our specialised approach includes therapies that address both the trauma and its long-term effects, fostering resilience and recovery.

Comorbid PTSD: This refers to the presence of PTSD alongside other mental health conditions, such as depression, anxiety, or substance use disorders. We provide specialised care to address the complexities of comorbid PTSD.

Childhood Trauma: Early life trauma, such as abuse, neglect, or the loss of a caregiver, can have lasting impacts on development and mental health. Our retreat provides a safe and nurturing environment where individuals can explore and heal from their childhood experiences through age-appropriate and trauma-informed therapies.

Trauma: Trauma encompasses a wide range of distressing experiences, including physical, emotional, and psychological harm. Our programmes are designed to support individuals in processing and recovering from various forms of trauma, promoting holistic healing and well-being.

PTSD Treatment At Home
Outpatient Options

If you are unable to attend our clinic in person, we offer flexible outpatient options that allow you to receive comprehensive care from the comfort of your home.

For PTSD recovery, this option is limited, as we recommend several hands-on treatments for optimal recovery. Clients from Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast can utilise the outpatient option from home. Alternatively, you are welcome to book your own accommodation on the Sunshine Coast rather than staying at the Atlantis Marcoola Resort.

Our outpatient services provide the same high-quality treatment and support as our in-clinic programs, ensuring you can continue your journey to recovery without the need to stay in our retreat accommodation. Contact us to explore the options available for your specific needs.

Our Evidence-Based Therapies

We combine scientific research with a personalised approach to effectively treat PTSD. Our evidence-based treatments, guided by rigorous research, ensure the highest standard of care. Our adaptable programs evolve with you, addressing immediate symptoms and equipping you with skills for long-term mental health.

Goodsky employs a unique bottom-up processing approach that emphasises the body and physical sensations of trauma to access and process emotional experiences. Trauma erodes the body physically, and by treating these physical aspects, we facilitate faster and more comprehensive healing. For example, people often hold trauma in their musculoskeletal system, leading to chronic pain and tension, or experience dysregulation in their gut and hormonal systems, affecting digestion and mood.

Our approach also addresses the nervous system, which can become hyperactive or suppressed due to trauma. Unlike traditional talk therapy, which primarily relies on verbal communication and cognitive processing, our method integrates body-focused therapies to promote holistic recovery and long-term well-being.

Our comprehensive array of treatments ensures that all aspects of a person’s health—mental, physical, and emotional—are addressed. This allows for tailored care plans that adapt to the unique challenges and preferences of each client, promoting overall wellness and long-term recovery. The integration of various therapeutic modalities maximises the effectiveness of the treatment program, supporting clients in achieving balanced and sustainable health outcomes. Our team collaborates with you to select the best therapeutic modalities for your healing journey. 

Below are some of our most popular therapy types.
