BSocWelf, MSW

Ellen joined The Banyans Health and Wellness’ team in February 2021 with a background in crisis social work, mostly in homeless shelters and emergency accommodation. Alongside being a Wellness Coach in the house, Ellen coordinates the nutritional testing component of our programs, provides management support and is part of the Aftercare Team. When she is not at work, Ellen manages crisis response teams for festivals.

The Banyans’ person-centred approach to care and multidisciplinary treatment was attractive to Ellen, who enjoys learning from other practitioners and watching how they work.

She is encouraged by the supportive working environment that The Banyans prides itself on and loves being part of team that helps guests to achieve optimal outcomes.

In her spare time, Ellen enjoys going to the beach, drinking coffee, gardening, reading, and just being outside.
