Evexia Therapeutic Programme
The multi-professional team consists of psychologists, psychiatrists, occupational therapists, registered nurses, social workers, dietitians, and trauma facilitators.
The program runs every weekday from 07h30 to 16h30.
Mondays start with a full assessment consisting of psychometric testing, interviews and a consultation interview with a psychiatrist. This is followed by a multi-professional team meeting to decide if Evexia’s standard program is suitable for you, or if we should adapt an individual program for you, or refer you to a different facility.
The program consists of the following components:
- Psycho-education groups facilitated by a psychiatrist.
- Wellness and life skills groups facilitated by occupational therapists, social workers and dietitians.
- Group psychotherapy facilitated by a psychologist.
The multi-professional team collaborates throughout the treatment / intervention process so that we can offer you the best holistic care.
At the end of each week at Evexia, either of the following options will be recommended to you:
- To follow up with your referrer, if applicable.
- Referral to a practitioner most suitable to you.
- Re-admission to Evexia for an additional week.
- Attendance of Evexia post-admission support groups.
All group members are expected to maintain the confidentiality of other group members.
Once you have been with us, we will keep your file and you will always be welcome to return.
“Experience has taught us that we have only one enduring weapon in our struggle against mental illness. The emotional discovery about the truth about our unique history of our childhood. In order to become whole we must try in a long process to discover our own personal truth. A truth that may cause pain before giving us a new sphere of freedom.
The damage caused in our childhood cannot be undone since we cannot change anything in our past. We can however change ourselves. We can repair ourselves and gain our lost integrity by choosing to look more closely at the knowledge that is stored inside our bodies and bring this knowledge closer to our awareness. We become free by transforming ourselves from unaware victims in the past into responsible individuals of the present who are aware of our past and thus able to live with it.” Alice Miller
