Veteran Care at Byron Bay Private

Are you concerned that you or a loved one is suffering from anxiety?

Worrying and feeling tense or scared when under pressure or facing a stressful situation is normal. Anxiety is the body’s natural response to danger, an automatic alarm that goes off when we feel threatened, out of our comfort zone or vulnerable. Although it may be unpleasant, anxiety isn’t always a bad thing. 

In fact, anxiety can help us stay alert and focused, spur us to action, and motivate us to solve problems. But when anxiety is constant or overwhelming, when it interferes with relationships, activities and everyday functioning, that’s when it’s crossed the line from normal anxiety into the territory of an anxiety disorder. At Byron Private, we provide a serene environment for individuals seeking an anxiety recovery retreat, fostering holistic healing amidst the tranquil hinterland environment of Byron Bay.

What is an Anxiety attack or Panic Attack?

Anxiety attacks, which are also referred to as panic attacks, are episodes of intense panic or fear that can occur suddenly and without warning. Sometimes, there is an obvious trigger, such as getting stuck in an elevator or thinking about the public speech you’re giving in a few hours, but often, anxiety attacks feel as though they come out of the blue.

Anxiety attacks usually hit and peak within 10 minutes, and they rarely last more than 30 minutes. But during that short time, the terror can be so severe that you feel as if you’re about to die or totally lose control. The physical symptoms are so frightening that many people believe they’re having a heart attack. After an anxiety attack is over, you may be terrified about having another one, particularly in a public place where help isn’t available, there are onlookers, or you can’t easily escape.

We can help

Anxiety disorders respond very well to treatment. Depending on the type of anxiety and its severity, generally, most anxiety disorders are treated with behavioural therapy, exercise, relaxation techniques and, in some cases, medication. At Byron Private, we understand the importance of holistic anxiety treatment and have woven a range of proven, complementary therapies throughout the program. We believe in the healing power of nature so our rehabilitation centre is set in the beautiful hinterlands of Byron Bay, surrounded by abundant wildlife and fauna – far removed from a clinical atmosphere.

At Byron Private, our holistic approach encompasses group therapy, individual psychotherapy, healing through nutrition, meditation therapy, yoga and more. Our anxiety retreats in Australia integrate evidence-based practices with the rejuvenating power of nature. For those seeking residential drug treatment, our centre provides a supportive environment for comprehensive recovery. 


  • Why is it important to seek treatment for anxiety?

    Seeking treatment for anxiety is crucial as it enables individuals to address and manage their symptoms effectively, improving overall mental wellbeing and quality of life. The longer an anxiety disorder continues untreated, the greater the severity of the symptoms and the more ingrained the body’s responses to the anxiety triggers become. The sooner treatment is sought, the quicker it is for the person to recover fully.
