Our Behavioural Support Services

These include specialist behavioural intervention support, which is intensive support for a participant, intending to address significantly harmful or persistent Behaviours of Concern (BoC).

Behaviour support requires a behaviour support plan to be developed that aims to limit the likelihood of behaviours of concern developing or increasing once identified.

This plan outlines the specifically designed positive behavioural support strategies for a participant, their family and support persons that will achieve the intended outcome of eliminating or reducing behaviours of concern.

Our Counselling Practice

Our experience enables us to offer effective, individualised, therapeutic care. We treat a number of mental health disorders, and provide services for individuals, families, and couples.

Our Treatment Focus

Our counselling focus is to help individuals heal, energise, and become aware of their inner strengths. We achieve this by listening to your concerns and customising a treatment plan to suit your needs based on empirically-proven counselling techniques. These include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Talk Therapy and Mindfulness.

Our Empowering Approach

We stand with you, offering guidance and clarity. Our approach empowers you to face challenges with strength, fostering personal growth and resilience on your journey.
