Behaviour Therapy

Behaviour Support and Capacity Building is about working collaboratively with the client and their support networks to gain an understanding of client strengths, needs and NDIS goals. We provide Behaviour Support and Capacity Building for children, young people and adults. We can provide Positive Behaviour Support Plans for clients of all ages as part of a behaviour support program.

During our sessions we use person-centred and evidence-based interventions that address the underlying causes of challenging behaviour or behaviours of concern. One popular approach is Marte Meo which is used to promote the development of autonomy, attachment and relationship building as a way to prevent behavioural escalations.

We provide therapeutic counselling, training and education to clients and those in their support networks. We believe that by assisting and upskilling those around the client, we can enhance the effectiveness of behavioural supports.

By working with and observing clients in their environments, we identify risks and triggers. We work with support people to ensure that the environment is conducive to the client’s success.

As part of our program we may recommend:

We strive to maintain the dignity and quality of life for people with a disability who need specialist behaviour support, as part of our commitment to the rights of a person with a disability. All of our clinicians work under the NDIS Code of Conduct and deliver services consistent with the NDIS Practice Standards.
