Our Purpose

We strive to recognise the uniqueness of each person we serve and tailor our support to meet their specific needs.


Highly qualified in Positive Behaviour Support and PROACT-SCIPr, our team’s purpose is to support people’s life choices and interests through:

  • Creating a safe and supportive environment
  • Focusing on person-centred care and support that reduces restrictive practices, particularly around physical interventions
  • Helping people improve their ability to perform daily tasks and engage in various activities
  • Helping people understand and better manage behaviours of concern
  • Developing communication strategies and interventions that support the independence of each person

Our Expertise

Our primary focus is always on quality of life. Therefore, our emphasis on creating person-centric ways of support, applying the PERMA model for well-being and the Capable Environments Model is integral to everything we do.

Based on their extensive professional experience with organisations such as NHS and the National Autistic Society, our therapy team is trained to find the best outcome for every person they support.

The Difference We Make

The therapy team’s main goal is to improve the quality of life of the people we support. As a team, they are deeply involved in helping people thrive in their own homes and communities. At Leaf Complex Care, we believe that by delivering holistic care and humanised support, we can provide people with the opportunity to rise above their daily challenges.

By adopting improved routines and learning new ways of communication, we strongly believe that people can reach their full potential and live their desired life. This is the driving force behind our team as we strive to deliver positive outcomes for the people we serve, their families, and the stakeholders involved in their care journey.

‘’We work to make sure that we involve families, social workers and everyone involved in that person’s life so that we get everyone’s views. So, to speak, we make sure everything we do, all interventions are based on PBS and empirical research, serving as best practice for analysing the behaviour of those with whom we work.’’
– Amy Butler, Therapy Team Lead / PBS Specialist Practitioner and Coach

We support people in building meaningful relationships, engaging in activities they cherish, and pursuing their interests.
