In charge of Morale
Welcome to Act To Connect
We are a team of experience behaviour therapists dedicated to helping kids figure out how to live a life they love.
Our founder began this work 22 years ago and has worked around the world with families providing high quality individualised behaviour therapy and support.
As a team we are committed to taking a humanistic, developmentally sensitive and trauma informed approach in all our work. Our therapeutic approach draws from a range of evidence based behavioural and developmental approaches such as Behaviour Analysis (BA), Collaborative Positive Solutions (CPS), Behavioural Activation, Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) to name a few.
We provide both in person and online support depending on the services requested, the needs of the individual and the distance from your nearest team member.

How Can We help?
There are many different ways in which to support another person to take action in life, below are some of the types of support I provide. Often individuals and families choose to receive a combination of these approaches.
In teaching sessions the therapist will focus more on directly shaping new skills. Together with your child’s assent we will work on a range of skills that have been identified as proving challenging for them.
In coaching sessions we will meet with the individual who is facing difficulties. We will together identify actions that will help reduce the difficulties they face and increase connection with those things that bring them joy.
In consultation sessions we will meet with caregivers such as parents, guardians, direct care workers and behaviour therapists. We will provide guidance in how to support, encourage and teach skills that move the person they are caring for closer to what they value in life.
In assessment sessions we will identify what are your (or your loved ones) strengths and challenges. In addition we will aim to pinpoint what are the root causes of those challenges so as to more effectively support the changes you wish to see in your (or your loved ones) life.
