With excellent interpersonal, training and presentation skills, Derek is committed to quality delivery and customer service, and is keen to maximise people and business potential.

Derek takes a practical approach to challenges and believes that working in partnership benefits all concerned. Although the service is client focused, we believe that all can benefit if it is acknowledged that support and understanding is as much of a need for significant others and employers as it is for the head injured.

Our approach is to provide support, training and situations, where the client can learn and develop the skills and insight needed, to find and adapt suitable compensatory strategies to maximise their potential. The learning process is evidence based.
