Chrysalis Therapeutic Support Services

How we can help

Chrysalis are Experts in Positive Behaviour Support

Chrysalis Therapeutic Support Services (Chrysalis) mission is to provide high-quality Behaviour Support Services for adults and children living with disabilities. We work collaboratively with each individual’s and their care system, family and supporters to improve their quality of life.

Our service delivery is transparent, flexible & mobile. We travel to you at a location that works for you; your family home, hospital, clinic, group home, school or aged care facility. Our aim is to reduce as many of the barriers that can prevent individuals from accessing the support they need. Our guarantee is that if Chrysalis can’t assist you for any reason we will help you to find someone who can.

Chrysalis’s policies and procedures are socially inclusive to provide safe therapeutic relationships for our clients.

Chrysalis provides ‘evidence-based’, ‘trauma-informed’ treatment options so our clients can build a secure foundation to support their recovery. We collaborate with our clients and their support network to scaffold each person’s unique journey as they develop new skills, and slowly increase their tolerance and desire for change.

As our clients begin to enjoy safer relationships we see an increase in their capacity to communicate their needs, regulate their emotions and take control of their own futures. Our job is to assist our clients to stay focussed on their functional skills, building social capital and their quality of life.

We join forces with our clients and their carers to create the future that they want and to return control and decision-making powers back to the client. Even small acts of self- determination can increase the quality of life of that person.

Chrysalis’s Behaviour Support Team Can Help
