"Peace In All Circumstances" 

Ms. Haywood's inspiration for the company name was acquired from her great-great-great grandmother "Ella", who always counseled family members to "be contented no matter what their life situations". That sage advice has helped to develop the E.L.L.A. philosophy and strengthen the vision; to offer techniques and counseling on how to achieve Equanimity in Life and Leadership Approaches

As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
- Nelson Mandela

Family Therapy

This counseling approach examines the structure and interactions of the entire family system as the family engages in safe, constructive and practical exchanges of feelings, perceptions, and facts. These guided exchanges coupled with active listening and understanding become the foundation for sustained progress. Family systems counseling allows the family to develop new productive methods of communication and behavior to live in a more harmonious manner.

Group Therapy

This approach involves one or more therapists working with several people at the same time. This type of therapy is offered in private therapeutic practices, hospitals, mental health clinics, and community centers. Group therapy is sometimes used alone, but it is also commonly integrated into a comprehensive treatment plan that also includes individual therapy and medication.

Individual Therapy

This is a therapeutic approach that systematically analyzes and corrects the way we think which directly effects our mood and the way we behave. Therapists work with the patient to assess their thought processes, distortions and thinking errors, automatic negative thoughts and irrational perceptions which interfere with daily functioning and our lives. Therapists assist the patient to correct their negative thought processes to perceive the world more accurately, feel better and cope with their daily lives and relationships more effectively.

Trauma-Focused Therapy

This approach is a components-based treatment model that incorporates trauma-sensitive interventions with cognitive-behavioral, family, and humanistic principles and techniques.

Life Coaching

Life coaching draws upon a variety of tools and techniques from other disciplines such as sociology, psychology, positive adult and child development with an aim towards helping individuals identify and achieve targeted goals. Life coaching helps you to think differently and learn for yourself what is best for you.

Integrative Approach

This counseling approach means drawing on and blending specific types of therapies. This approach affirms the inherent value of each individual. It is a unifying psychotherapy that responds appropriately and effectively to the person at the affective, behavioral, cognitive, and physiological levels of functioning, and addresses as well the spiritual dimension of life.

Yoga Therapy

 Yoga therapy takes a whole-body approach, assessing each person's overall health and working with whatever limitations are present. This approach also considers mental health, sometimes using a combination of talk therapy and movement, under the assumption that mental and physical wellness are integrated.
