The story behind Secret Habit

Founders: Shawn & Helena Bonneteau – Certified Profesional Mentors

Secret Habit was founded by Shawn and Helena back in 2017, and in 2019, it became a division of Open Door Centre. Their passion for this work comes from a background of personal struggle with porn addiction and betrayal trauma. Since embarking on their own healing journeys and finding freedom, Shawn and Helena started Secret Habit with the hope that their story would help others who are in similar situations, yet have a desire to work through their struggles. Secret Habit is focused on holistic healing that offers so much more than just behaviour management and sobriety… They are all about helping people find freedom, and they whole heartedly believe that it is available to everyone.
