Our Method

The most comprehensive treatment in the world – we combine Western, Eastern and African medicine summarized in our three cornerstones Biochemical, Structural and Emotional Health.

Structural Health

Our program is structured to give you the keys to a healthier life tied to your path. Together with our client, we work on the basis of an individual implementation plan with goals and sub-goals that form different steps on the journey to change. The effort is tailored to each individual and continuously measured with evidence-based parameters. 

To change a behavior can take anything from a couple of weeks to a year. It is not an easy process as our brain in many ways is “programmed” to choose short-time rewards.  By taking our clients away from their daily life and habits we can kickstart a change and give the tools and structure to continue during the after-care program.

When the change in behavior has succeeded, we believe in an 80/20 look upon life where you continue to be healthy 80% of your time and cheat a little bit the remaining 20%. This means that you can take that one glass of champagne at the event or eat junk food once in a while without having to worry about falling back to the previous unhealthy behavior.

Biochemical Restoration

The very first step in becoming the person you want to be is to make sure that your body and brain can function properly – this is why the Biochemical restoration par tof the program is our North Star because it makes sustainable recovery possible. 

An unhealthy lifestyle from eating habits and lack of physical activity to stress, addictive behavior and substance abuse causes significant biochemical imbalances. In order to fully understand the physiological causes of our clients’ mental conditions, we analyze their biochemistry with laboratory testsand assessments then combine Western, Eastern and African medicine to treat the core issue.

Based on laboratory tests and assessments we create a tailor-made master plan for biochemical restoration that will:

Include the client’s specific need of nutrients, minerals, vitamins and probiotics.

Strengthen the stressed organs and help the restoration process.

Help to kickstart the body's own reward system.

A tailor-made biochemical
recovery may include:

Clinical nutrition · Balanced nutrition · physical training · Balanced intestinal health · balanced reward system · balanced cholesterol levels · balancing hormonal levels and so on.

Emotional Health

We help our clients to identify, define, and emotionally connect to their true self to find meaning on scales large and small. Through self-understanding, you’ll find that perfect fit. Things can be much better than you believe if you start to make the best of where you are and what you do. 

The process begins with identifying what is blocking you from being your “true self”.  Our clients have access to a team that uses several treatment methods that are adapted to the each and every client’s personal needs.

SUDDS

(Substance Use Disorder Diagnostic Schedule)

Is an evidence-based method of securing the aspects of the complex addiction state, and an effective way of creating initial motivation for the change process that follows. SUDDS is a structured interview where the questions provide a basis for quick and safe assessments.

Scheme Therapy

Our behavior in different situations is largely influenced by how we fundamentally perceive ourselves and the outside world together with our overall experience of how we previously handled similar situations.

Perceptions and experiences that can be both conscious and unconscious. The term "schedule" is the unifying term used to describe these phenomena, hence the name scheme therapy.

ACT

(Acceptance Commitment Therapy)

ACT is about;
- Accepting your reactions and be present.
- Choose a valued direction.
- Take Action 

A basic concept in ACT is "valued direction", which means that you should reflect on and rate what you value (eg friends, family, career and more). These values are not expressed as individual goals, such as getting married, but as more general orientations.

For example, it may be to maintain and develop relationships with close friends or to create opportunities to (continue) dance and move. The purpose of identifying directions rather than goals is that once the goals are met (or prove not to be met), feelings of emptiness, confusion and meaninglessness can arise. Directions, on the other hand, can take on many different expressions, which means that you can create new goals when the old ones are met or can no longer be met. We have our own developed Holistic model helping you to find the right directions for you in your life.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT helps the individual to make specific changes or achieve specific goals. We provide tools for a new way of thinking, feeling, acting and managing their problems in everyday situations in the present. It is the client's opinions and experiences about this or her situation that are the central but also the risk situations that exist and the unthinkable decisions that can take place, for example, drinking, tablet abuse or gambling. 

Our Holistic approach takes the psychological and behavioral processes associated with health and well-being to eliminate the core of psychological or emotional problems.  We incorporate concepts such as metacognition, acceptance, mindfulness, personal values, and spirituality.

Motivational Conversation

Motivational Interviewing - MI

MI is a conversation method, which aims to increase a person's will to change their behavior based on the assumption that stronger motivation with greater probability leads to behavioral changes.

The method is used to increase motivation for change when it comes to risky lifestyle habits, lifestyle issues or in other situations where a conversation about change is conducted.

Criminology

We work with the root causes of criminal behavior to develop effective and humane means for preventing it. Cognitive treatment of offenders can show them a way out of that trap.

With effort and practice, even the most serious offenders can learn to change their thinking about other people and themselves. They can learn to be good citizens and feel good about it.
