Changes I Program

An evidence-based experiential psychotherapy workshop to address unresolved childhood trauma and issues.

Available as part of our

Core Program Day Patient Programs Workshops

About The Program

Changes I is South Pacific Private’s signature workshop and is what sets us apart from other treatment centres in the country.

The Changes I Program is a key part of our inpatient program and is now also offered as a standalone inpatient workshop for individuals who are in recovery and wanting to dive deeper.

This Trauma-informed program uses Pia Mellody’s Model of Developmental Immaturity and is an experiential process group which incorperates group therapy, education and process work. It is facilitated by our renowned, formally trained clinicians.

In a safe and compassionate environment you will get the opportunity to explore childhood relational trauma, to process, honour and release the painful feelings that are holding you back from embracing your full potential and moving forward in your recovery.

  • Identify and increase awareness of your personal trauma history
  • Identify and increase awareness of your defence mechanisms and coping strategies
  • Understand the importance of boundaries in relationships with others and yourself
  • Develop boundary-setting skills.
  • Learn healthy ways of relating to others

Who Is It For?

The program is specifically tailored to individuals who have struggled with life, relationships and finding joy. This unique program has been designed for participants to learn how to manage relational difficulties, behaviours and explore the underlying causes that fuel addictions and mental health conditions.

  • Do you continue to relapse into old behaviours or addictions?
  • Do you have unresolved feelings of pain, anger, shame, guilt, loneliness and fear?
  • Do you have childhood wounds that won’t heal?
  • Do you continue to do the same things in relationships and feel overwhelmed or defeated?

If you relate to these questions, then this program is designed for you.
