Latafale is a registered Social Worker and our Health Improvement Practitioner (HIP) at our medical centres in Johnsonville and Thorndon. This is a free service to provide more overall wellbeing support for you at the same place that you see your doctor.
Latafale can see people of all ages and stages of life and there are no barriers as to who she can see as long as you’re an enrolled patient at one of our practices.
Here are some of the areas she can offer you support with:
- Managing stress
- Overcoming hurdles in daily life
- Trauma Informed Care
- Making healthy lifestyle changes
- Developing strategies to improve your wellbeing
- Sexual Harm Prevention Education
Latafale provides face-to-face support as well as via phone or video if that works better for you. A typical consultation will take about 15-20 minutes and is usually focused on useful, practical steps you can start straight away.
If this sounds like something you could benefit from, don’t hesitate to book your free appointment by calling us on 04 920 8850 or ask your doctors or nurse to introduce you to Latafale next time you’re in.
Latafale is at Johnsonville Medical Centre on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and at Thorndon Medical Centre on Tuesdays.
