Halle Jackson-Key

Halle is a Oasis Family Support Practitioner offering support and guidance to families who are being or have been affected by a family member using drugs or alcohol.

Halle has a BSc in psychology, and Is currently working towards her MA. Throughout this time, she have done a lot of work surrounding the psychological underpinnings and explanations of addiction. Halle has also been part of research projects looking into Adverse Childhood Experiences and how or if these link to development of addictions. Halle joined LAT with hopes that she could use this research and understanding to help those in need and make a positive difference in people’s lives. 

Halle strongly believes in the work we do at the Oasis Family Support Service as the effects of substance use are not limited to the individuals.  Oasis provides a safe space for people to develop coping skills, access emotional support, understand more about addiction and have a listening-ear with practitioners going above and beyond for their clients which inspired Halle to join the organisation. 

Halle has also recently had the opportunity to undertake M-PACT training which allows her to support with bringing families back together.
