The impact of Covid-19 in the last few years has highlighted more than ever the need for holistic, tailored approaches to mental health. Since our founding in 2016 Our House Our Haven has recognised the need for nurse-led, not-for-profit mental health care. Specialising in holistic therapy and NDIS counselling in Karalee Ipswich. Our House Our Haven recognises that money should never be a barrier to healthcare and as a not-for-profit organisation providing affordable counselling in the Ipswich region, has always been our services primary goal. 

From humble beginnings operating out of the Ipswich Central Church Hall we recognised early on the need for affordable support in our community. Moving in 2018 to our new home in Karalee Ipswich, provided an opportunity to expand our service in a more relaxed environment.  We deal with an extensive range of mental health concerns, with a focus on trauma-informed therapy in the Ipswich area. By integrating neurofeedback, psychotherapy and peer support work our multidisciplinary team can provide a unique community of support within an accessible setting for the Ipswich region. 

Providing affordable counselling in Ipswich creates a relaxed but informed model of accessible care without the financial burden. Led by Carey Blaik and supported by a diverse range of peer support workers, nurses and a community of volunteers with lived experience, our not-for profit model aims to tailor treatment to best suit individual needs. 

We provide both private and NDIS supported therapy in Ipswich, offering essential support to patients, families, and carers. This support assists to provide essential relief and respite to families of those suffering from a diverse range of trauma-related mental illness throughout the Ipswich region. We provide access to neurofeedback in conjunction with diverse treatment styles to provide ongoing care and support for the Ipswich community.
