Understand & Change Unwanted Behaviours

Behaviour Support Practitioners to support you with Behaviour Change

FABIC’s Counsellors are part of our Behaviour Support Practitioner Team and help people to understand and change their unwanted behaviours by supporting them to develop the skills they need to feel confident to respond to life.

Fabic operates from the foundation that all non-preferred or unwanted behaviours are a result of anxiety first – A person perceiving that they are not yet equipped to handle aspects of life that they are currently facing.

This is where behaviour counselling can support a person to develop the skills they need to respond to life and reach their full potential. Fabic’s behaviour counselling services can support them to develop the skills to respond to challenging life situations, take responsibility, build self-awareness and learn the practical skills needed.

  • Anxiety, sadness, grief, frustration, anger and depression
  • Parenting issues
  • Relationship challenges
  • Children
  • Adolescents
  • Communication issues in homes, workplaces, schools and between individuals
  • Social skills development
