Organisation Description

I teach staff PMVA (Prevention & Management of Violence & Aggression) who work with challenging behaviour within mental health, Autism, Learning Disabilities and other fields. I deliver training for national nursing agencies, international mental health hospitals to local government and more.

My training emphasises on De-escalating situations, looking at the different stages of a patient going into crisis from anxiety to tension reduction and staff responses from supportive to therapeutic rapport. Physical intervention should only be used as an absolute last resort. I pride myself on being extremely knowledgeable in understanding a patient in crisis and how best to eleviate this tension, for example listening, distraction & refocusing techniques and much more.
