The Support Squad Recovery Coaching Program

‘DON’T DIS MY ABILITY’

Our shared vision for this program is based on a dual pillared approach. Each pillar (Being each of us as the pillars) brings a unique blend of talents culminating into a life coaching model that is not only supporting the client to lead their best life as they live with the cards they have been dealt but also highlighting and breaking down the stigma attached to mental health and living with a disability within the community.
Our client base ideally would target specific areas, of which I believe could possibly be gaps in the sector that need filling such as youth and young men and women either in and out of custody, or within the community, with FASD and other mental disabilities, either diagnosed or undiagnosed, for NDIS as well as disabilities for grown men and women diagnosed from drug abuse in earlier life such as drug psychosis and schizophrenia.

He is driven, focused and prides himself on working closely with clients and stakeholders. He has a “never give up” attitude and the ability to get others to see that there is a bright future for those living with the disability, as well as their informal supports.
