So much of our lives revolve around data: what if you could make your data revolve around you?

Keep track of your health, behaviour, support system, funding, therapy, and just about any other type of data… your way.

If you are using paper forms and notebooks, you can digitise them and make them mobile. Let us help you do this swiftly and elegantly. (more…)

Positive Behaviour Support

We solve many of our behaviour problems when we improve our general quality of life. Positive Behaviour Support creates a safe and predictable relational space where new skills and social behaviours can grow. It starts with you. What are your goals and needs, and what type of support do you need to get there? (more…)

Motivational Interviewing Training

Motivational Interviewing (MI) could transform the way you help people make positive changes in their life. MI is a way of rapidly and compassionately engaging with people and understanding their goals and values. It  is a Person-Centred style of Listening, which draws out of people their own strengths and goals, and guides people toward the change they want. (more…)

I-CAN Assessment

The I-CAN assessment will help make sure all of your support needs are properly funded as part of your NDIA Plan.

The Instrument for the Classification and Assessment of Support Needs (I-CAN) is an internationally recognised assessment for people with disabilities including people with mental health concerns. (more…)

“David’s messages where clear, on target and provided practical insight into how motivational interviewing can facilitate our work within the community. Overall a great workshop for our leader training.”

Angela Breeze Better Health Company, Dietitian, General Manager-Programs and Training

“We work in the occupational health sector (workers compensation) and we have people from disciplines such as rehab counsellors, psychs, occupational therapists, exercise physiologists and physios. We deal with people who have been off work for many years – sometimes up to 20 so motivational practices play a big role in our daily activities. My team really enjoyed the training – I’m interested to see them put some of the skills they learnt to action in the coming weeks.”

Laura Whiteley Manager, Kairros Injury Management Professionals

“David took the time to understand the service and to recognise the skills of the clinicians. It was a real pleasure to work with David to deliver these two events. I found David to be enthusiastic, positive, responsive, highly personable and reliable. I would recommend David to other organisations who wish to pursue training/skills development in Motivational Interviewing.”
