Young Adult Programs at The Banyans Health and Wellness

Young people experience a unique and challenging period of their lives. This means that a tailored approach to each individual is extremely important in order to help them receive the skills required for lifelong health and wellness.



Individually tailored

Our bespoke approach to treatment at The Banyans means that each young person is provided with strategies and methods of gaining personal insight that is specific for their life stage and personal obstacles. Entirely one-on-one therapy encourages vulnerability and honesty.



Highly qualified team

The Banyans Health and Wellness has a highly qualified team in the area of youth and young adult therapy. Naturally, all of our clinicians are well versed in working with young people, however having specifically trained professionals like Dr Anja and Lorilea bring in an extra level of expertise that are needed to support youth and young adults.

Our lead psychiatrist Dr Anja Kriegeskotten has a special interest in this demographic, and has over twenty years of therapeutic experience. Similarly, psychologist Lorilea Huon completed her Masters of Educational and Developmental Psychology, providing an excellent foundation for mental and emotional therapy.



Flexible program

Purpose built residence

The residential phase at The Banyans Health and Wellness can be daunting for young people, especially if they are unfamiliar with being away from their home for an extended period of time.

Lounge spaces, theatre, swimming pool, gym, pool table and outdoor gardens are available for guests to enjoy at their leisure.
