Trauma Program

The Lighthouse Bali is proud to offer the only dedicated trauma programs of their kind in Southeast Asia. Our unique trauma programs support clients to overcome the obstacles that were caused by traumatic events in the past, and provide the tools needed to move forward in a life filled with peace and happiness.

Our intensive trauma programs are specifically designed for clients who have suffered a traumatic event, or series of events, in their lives. Our team of experts work with each client to identify and work through their symptoms in order to prevent the long-term or chronic consequences that are often associated with trauma.

Our program has been designed to support clients in challenging problematic thought patterns, while helping them to make sense of the traumatic event or events that occurred.

The Lighthouse Bali Trauma Program

Unlike weekly therapy sessions, which can take years to show results, our private trauma programs focus on intensive clinical procedures that ensure healing and recovery. Our programs are exclusive to one client at a time, ensuring that high-quality, dedicated commitment is provided in supporting clients to address their trauma and overcome the effect that it is having on their ability to function and enjoy life.

Our trauma programs are specifically designed to support individuals suffering from visible and invisible trauma. Visible trauma is often called “Big T” trauma, and trauma survivors often receive a diagnosis known as PTSD (Post-traumatic stress disorder). On the other hand, there is a more invisible type of trauma, also referred to as “little t’ trauma. Typically, this invisible (or “little t”) trauma does not lead to direct symptoms of PTSD; however, those suffering with it often develop chronic trauma response symptoms or specific unhelpful thinking patterns, schemas, or coping modes.

Our trauma programs are structured around a holistic and integrative approach tailored to each client’s specific needs. We build your bespoke program around evidence-based trauma treatment modalities: Schema therapy and EMDR therapy (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). With studies showing that the majority of single-trauma clients no longer have post-traumatic stress disorder after only three sessions of intensive therapy and remarkable results being documented for those with multiple traumatic incidents, we are proud to offer this bespoke treatment program to our clients.

Who is The Lighthouse Bali’s Trauma Program for?

The length of time a client needs in The Lighthouse Bali’s Intensive trauma program varies. Therefore, Dr. Andre offers “Single incident trauma Intensives” or “Story-clearing Intensives.” Single Incident-programs focus only on the particular content you decide to address, even if more things are present that need attention in the form of trauma work. A Story-clearing Intensive is a more comprehensive treatment format where you will address and reprocess all trauma incidents, including childhood traumas.

Examples of Single Incident Intensives:   

  • Recent Events: Natural disaster, public violence, medical trauma, car accident, work-related trauma
  • Ongoing Traumatic Stress: First responders processing vicarious trauma, frontline medical workers, racial trauma, divorce & custody battle, current domestic violence, gender, identity & LGBTQ trauma, COVID stress, Cancer
  • Stuck Beliefs & Fears that block: Avoidance of exercise, overeating, performance challenges in sports, writing or music, considering a career change or lifestyle change

Examples of Story-Clearing Intensives: Childhood Traumas

  • Abuse: emotional, physical, sexual, and neglect
  • Attachment wounds
  • Bullying
  • Death of parents/grandparents, siblings
  • Religion or cult trauma
  • Significant changes, such as moves and loss of financial stability

Modalities: Clinical, Physical, and Wellness.

The Lighthouse Bali believes in a holistic approach to healing, which incorporates the body, mind and spirit. Balance is the key and, in addition to the hard work of healing trauma, clients enjoy physical activities, self-care sessions, healthy food and activities on the Island of Bali.

As described above, the core module of the Intensive Trauma Program is the work with Dr. Andre. The amount of therapy sessions needed will vary for each client and will be discussed during the initial assessment, prior to the client’s arrival in Bali.

We also offer a comprehensive suite of complementary therapy, physical exercise and wellness options including:

  • Yoga
  • Personal Training
  • Surfing

  • Qigong
