Aleah Haffenden

Social Worker

I enjoy working together to set goals and then breaking them down into creative and achievable steps so that you can break through the barriers and work towards the quality of life that you desire and deserve. When you come to see me, I will provide you with a safe environment, non-judgmental listening, and empathy – which doesn’t feel like work to me, it just feels like genuinely connecting with my fellow human being. I believe in a holistic approach ie that body and mind are strongly connected, and that our environment has a strong impact on our wellbeing.

Lenore Hall

Counsellor

I am passionate about understanding the neuroscience and the impact of trauma, stress, and relationship on mental health, and learning more about the connectedness of physical, emotional, and social well-being. I delight in working with the uniqueness that is each person, and I am in awe of our ‘inner knowing’, an inner strength that enables us to survive challenging experiences, speaks our truth and seeks to make sense of our journey, to connect with others, or maybe disconnect when this is more helpful to our survival. My goal as a Counsellor is to work with you to identify your patterns, of stress, anxiety, depression, addiction, or relational struggles that hinder you in managing life, achieving goals and/or create self-sabotage within relationships. I value empathetic, authentic relationship, I will hear your truth, work together with you to develop an authentic relationship with yourself and with others and facilitate your own journey of change.
