These techniques help reduce difficult behaviour
    like inattention, aggression and screaming.
    As an experienced therapist, Jasmine has been working with individuals with varying
    needs from early school age through to adulthood. Jasmine believes in strength-based, family and child inclusive, and recovery-orientated approach to achieve the desired outcome. Her friendly and welcoming manner help her build constructive rapport with her clients to achieve the best result from each session.
