Behavioural Support Services Expand in Brisbane

Breakthru is excited to announce that our clinical services continue to expand in Brisbane with the introduction of our newest Behavioural Support Practitioner, Sarah. 

As a very welcome addition to the Fortitude Valley team, Sarah brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to our growing portfolio of Allied Health services, allowing our customers to access specialised supports that improve their communication, behaviours, and general wellbeing.

Our BSP team is person centered in their approach and work collaboratively with family and other stakeholders to ensure we are developing an accurate and effective picture of a person’s need. With no waitlist, we can develop a positive behavioural support plan to improve customer skills and understanding in the face of every day situations.

Behavioural Support Practitioner Sarah

Say hi to our new Behavioural Support Practitioner, Sarah!

Sarah completed her Bachelor of Behavioural Science (Psychology) at the Queensland University of Technology before commencing her Master of Public Health at the University of Queensland’s Faculty of Medicine.

Sarah has experience delivering supports to child, adolescent and adult customers, with behaviours of concern ranging from none to severe, and level of intellectual capacity ranging from mild to significant. Sarah has a passion for approaching her work with empathy and creativity, building positive rapport with customers and their stakeholders, and examining circumstances from a holistic and justice-oriented viewpoint.

Outside of her role in positive behaviour support, Sarah occasionally engages in children’s entertainment work at birthday parties and the Starlight Foundation and performs in community-based musical theatre shows.

Sarah is now taking referrals, so if you or someone you know are looking to access Behavioural Support Services, please fill out our referral form or contact our customer service team on 1800 767 212 today.
