Behaviour therapist?

A Behaviour Therapist is a professional who helps individuals overcome negative or harmful behaviours. At Angel Care, our Behaviour Therapists are highly trained and registered with the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission. Our therapists offer flexible services and can provide behavior support in a variety of settings, including at home, in preschools, schools, community settings, group homes, or residential facilities.

What can a Behaviour therapist

do for you?

The role of a Behaviour Therapist involves writing NDIS progress reports, providing ABA (Applied Behaviour Analysis) and ESDM (Early Start Denver Model) therapies, conducting assessments, observing clients, and evaluating their progress. Behavioural therapy works by addressing the underlying causes of disruptive behaviors, which may stem from mental health disorders such as anxiety or depression.

Individuals seek Behavioural Therapy for a variety of reasons, including depression, anxiety, panic disorder, anger management, eating disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, bipolar disorder, phobias, obsessive-compulsive disorder, self-harm, and drug abuse. The goals of Behavioural Therapy are to identify the root cause of disruptive behaviors and to work with the individual or family to change their thought patterns and behaviors.

The NDIS process for Behaviour Therapy begins with three sessions of observation and assessment, followed by the creation of a behavior support plan. Effective therapy requires everyone involved to be on the same page and to follow the plan. The therapist works one-on-one with the client, and may include parents or caretakers in the case of a child, to help them develop healthier thought patterns and behaviors.

We are committed to providing you with the finest quality care possible. Whether you come to us, or we come to you, or even via telehealth, we are here for you.


Behaviours of Concern?

Behaviours of concern, also known as challenging behaviors, are actions that may cause harm to oneself or others. Examples include biting, hitting, self-harm, aggression, throwing things, screaming, and more. These behaviors can hinder daily activities, cause stress and distress, and impact quality of life.

Behavioural Therapy for Children

Applied Behavioural Therapy and Play Therapy are both forms of Behavioural Therapy for children. It involves teaching children how to respond to problems in a more positive manner. Positive behaviour is rewarded and negative behaviour is punished as a fundamental aspect of this therapy. Parents play a crucial role in a child’s Behavioural Therapy as they help reinforce the lessons learned in the child’s daily life.

Patience is crucial when helping children through Behavioural Therapy as it may take time for them to trust the therapist. This is normal as children usually warm up to the therapist if they feel they can express themselves without consequences.

How can we help?

Our help involves evaluating and assessment of the condition and developing and implementing a Behavioural Therapy plan.
