How we help
We support a wide range of people going through tough times. In particular we work with people who have experienced traumatic life events such as brain or spinal injuries, or who are living with chronic pain, mental illness, physical or intellectual disabilities. We are willing to work with the whole system around the individual including their family, carers and other service providers to enable the person return to valued roles in the community.
Services We Offer
With you on the journey
We provide individualised therapy for clinical problems including depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, chronic pain, adjustment disorders and coping with change. We use evidence-based treatments such as cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing, behaviour activation or trauma-focused exposure therapy.
Positive behaviour support
We are experts in challenging behaviours and have a solid background in all modes of behavioural assessment, designing and evaluating positive behaviour support (PBS) programs, training staff and providing ongoing coaching. We work collaboratively with the client, their families, support agencies, funding bodies and other service providers in order to achieve measurable outcomes.
We have office locations in Sydney
and Parramatta. We provide outreach across the Sydney
metro area and can provide services to regional areas upon request.
