Haven Toolkits in Victoria


Try something different!

The Haven Toolkits are a great way to introduce someone to the work of The Haven. And this time round, the Toolkits feature a NEW workshop on Self Compassion!

The Haven Communication Toolkit

Building clarity and connection

Communicating should be simple. Say what's on your mind; listen to the other person. So why can it be such a challenge? How do our best intentions get caught up in spiraling misunderstandings? Join us for a fun and interactive look at how we can trip ourselves up in communication, and how we can do it differently.

NEW! The Haven Self Compassion Toolkit

Becoming more of who you are

Most of us have an ideal image of who we should be and how we should behave. This can be a great motivator, but it can also lead to difficulties when we beat ourselves up for failing to meet those expectations or reject aspects of ourselves that don’t match up to this narrow image. This toolkit is an opportunity to stop being so hard on yourself and motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticism. Explore the range of who you are and develop more compassion for yourself … and in the process, more compassion for others.
