Hi, I am Avril the proud owner of Haven Holistic & Beauty. There was once a time when every client in Haven knew who I was. However, as our Haven community grew through word of mouth from our wonderful loyal clients there became a need for more therapists. With this, each team member built up their own followers and so it continues.
Since opening in 2005 life has thrown many challenges on my path in my personal life, some of which meant I had to take a step back from running the salon and also carrying out treatments which is my real passion. During that time my earth angel Johanne (my sister) stepped in and managed Haven for me. Whilst Johanne was busy taking care of my first baby – so to speak – I was able to focus on my family and getting our little girl back to full health.
I am so grateful to the wonderful people in my life who have supported me all the way, Haven’s wonderful staff, clients, my family and friends.
The feeling here at Haven is based on tranquillity and wellbeing, this is mirrored in the ambience. Walk into the sound of peaceful music and therapeutic aromas. It will feel a world away from everyday life! Join us on a journey of escapism and feel invigorated, rejuvenated and utterly relaxed on your visit.
Our highly trained team deliver outstanding treatments across our six treatment rooms. Feel at ease as our qualified therapists take care of you, tailoring your treatment to your exacting needs to ensure you leave feeling de-stressed, relaxed and re-energised.
With so many treatments and experiences to explore, why not click here to be transported! Remember if you have any questions please contact us and a therapist will be delighted to talk through your needs. We truly hope you enjoy your visit to Haven.
