Welcome! It can often feel quite daunting when we first decide to find a Health Professional. Well done – you are on your way! Allow me to introduce myself; I am Jay Harrison CEO and Clinical Director of Footsteps Community Services. I have operated within the mental health and disability sector for over 25 years, spending the majority of my career functioning within both Child Safety and Disability Services.
We at Footsteps Community Services are interested in supporting you in an empowering way to achieve a sense of ‘wholeness’ and wellbeing. We believe that we all have this potential. From time to time, we all need a little extra support from someone outside our usual network. Challenging issues will arise along our paths. We look forward to working alongside you to explore the meaning in what is going on for you, and reaching your goals.
We have a great passion and interest in working with all members of our community, especially adults and children who have Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) diagnosis, and their family members. As therapists, PBSP Practitioners, and Nurses we do not perceive the labelled condition as a negative, we all view this as an opportunity to develop, or enhance the individuals abilities.
We are a NDIS approved and Registered provider to deliver several services within the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS):
- Positive Behaviour Support.
- Early Childhood Supports.
- Therapeutic Support -Psychotherapy.
- Community Nursing – Continence Assessments and Medication Reviews.
- Employee Assistance Program.
