Our expert medical team of therapists at Centre for Healing and Life transformation is led by a treatment team of consultant psychiatrists, specialist doctors, doctors and healing professionals who provide a full range of treatment options for our clients. Because we utilize an individualized treatment program that is highly client specific, our treatment team is considerable and highly collective in terms of skills. As we are not a run of the mill clinic or recovery center and certainly don’t aspire to be. We don’t have nurses or medical staff on site – only therapist and a team of loving individuals dedicated to personal transformation. You are treated like a sojourner, a passionista, a person in need of profound change, healing, growth and transformation. As such you keep your phones and laptops, your dignity, solitude and privacy as you need it. The balance between growth and development and empathic loving care is second to none. You will feel the atmosphere as you walk through the door. We are down to earth, earthy and spiritual. Open to all people, religions and lifestyles. We are all about connection, support and profound personal growth.

Plettenberg Bay itself has an absolute wealth of experienced medical and health practitioners. They often work together to assist patients with fulfilling their specific needs. These amazing people comprise our consultant medical treatment team and every one of them helps us to pursue and build our growing and unique name for leading edge treatment, that meets people where they are in their own, unique process.
