Day therapy for post-traumatic stress disorder
Post-traumatic stress disorder is a mental health condition characterised by the presence of distressing symptoms following exposure to a traumatic event or ongoing stressors.
Day therapy program
Our day therapy program offers mental health therapy and support for individuals who have experienced trauma and are dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or other stress-related conditions.
We provide a safe and nurturing environment where you can access tools and strategies to address your specific symptoms and needs.
Our program focuses on helping individuals understand and manage the symptoms of PTSD and related stress conditions.
We help participants address trauma and stress-related emotions and develop new thought patterns to better manage the symptoms associated with trauma and stress.
The program begins with a comprehensive mental health assessment by a senior psychiatrist who develops an individualised treatment plan tailored to your needs.
Group therapy sessions
We conduct our program via group therapy sessions which are facilitated by our skilled mental health team. These sessions provide a safe space to share experiences, gain insights, and learn valuable coping strategies.
You will learn more about PTSD and stress-related disorders, including the impact of trauma on the mind and body, common symptoms, and effective treatment options.
Cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT)
Participants learn strategies to help manage and change unhelpful thoughts and beliefs through cognitive-behavioural therapy techniques.
We provide skills training to help cope with stress, regulate emotions, and manage trauma-related symptoms. This includes mindfulness techniques, relaxation exercises, emotion regulation strategies, and stress management techniques.
Self-care and wellness
A personalised self-care plan is developed to promote overall wellbeing, including self-compassion, self-care practices, and lifestyle adjustments that support optimal mental health.
We also develop strategies to prevent relapse and maintain progress. This focuses on identifying triggers, implementing coping mechanisms, and building a support network for ongoing support and accountability.
