I was born to do this job, from as early as I can remember I have enjoyed meeting people, interacting and making connections with others and helping wherever I can. Now I am lucky enough to do a job where I can use my love of interacting with people alongside my training in Psychology and Applied Behaviour Analysis to make connections with others and support individuals and their families with the skills needed to overcome barriers, increase interaction/communication skills, reduce harmful behaviours and increase active involvement in community, vocational, self help and independence skills.
I began working with people with disabilities from the age of 17 and never looked back, from that point on I have held many roles within the field including Disabilities Mentor for secondary school children and then university students with disabilities, Riding for the Disabled teacher, SEN Teaching Assistant, Special needs Camp Counselor alongside a Consultant Behaviour Analyst.
I completed my Psychology BSc in 2007 and graduated from my Masters degree in Applied Behaviour Analysis in 2010 and gained my BCBA certification in January 2012. Within behaviour analysis I have worked in a variety of settings including working in a residential home for teenagers and adults with complex needs and behaviours which challenge, I have worked as a self employed ABA tutor and supervisor and now work as an ABA consultant with skybound therapies.
I have worked with individuals aged 3 to 30 and above and I am passionate about using the full evidence based science Behavior Analysis has to offer in order to support each individual I visit reach their full potential including Early Intensive Intervention, Positive Behaviour Support, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Functional Behavioural Assessments, PEAK and Derived Relations, Verbal Behaviour Approach etc. I am passionate about using the science of behaviour analysis to design the bespoke interventions needed to support the individual towards a better life.
