Specialist positive behavioural support

Consultant in Positive Behavioural Support and Board Certified Behaviour Analyst

I have worked with adults and children with learning disabilities since 1988 and have worked clinically with people whose behaviour seriously challenges others to meet their needs across a range of setting in including a long stay hospital in Durham and an Intensive Support Community Service in Sunderland.

I am currently the Consultant Lead in a Community Positive Behavioural Support Team for a large NHS Mental Health and Disability Trust in the North East. I have a wide range of experience of direct clinical work, leading and supporting others to develop their clinical skills, improving the quality of services and research and evaluation.  

Currently I work for the Hesley Group on a part-time basis and I am passionate about helping the company to embed Positive Behavioural Support in our service supporting and upskilling staff and most importantly improving the quality of life of the people who we support.
