Little things can mean a lot. What is nothing to one person can be a life-changing event for another.

That’s what Therapy Pro Senior social worker Julie Marshall believes, and it’s an attitude that she has embraced and applied through a varied and extensive 20-year career, both in Australia and the UK.

Julie has worked in many settings in the health care industry, including aged care, disability, mental health and child protection.

Julie is a Lead Positive Behaviour Support practitioner and provides supervision, support, and training to therapists within Therapy Pro to maintain the high levels of excellence in Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) and adherence to the Commission’s capability framework.

Julie can provide specialist behaviour support and develop positive behaviour support plans which include training to the support team around the person, to help facilitate a robust implementation of the plan and the best possible opportunity for positive outcomes as a result of the plan.

Julie is experienced in the use and understanding of restrictive practice legislation and the inclusion of restrictive practice in the preparation of positive behaviour support plans.

A capable and knowledgeable facilitator, Julie regularly provides training to businesses and organisations external to Therapy Pro on positive behaviour support and the use of restrictive practice.

As a Senior Social Worker, Julie works with children and adults, including people under the care of child safety, and is a skilled individual and family counsellor, and can identify safe and suitable housing for people.

Her extensive work experience is coupled with knowledge of working in client-directed care – she helped set up a similar scheme to NDIS in her native England.

“For me it is about making a difference in the lives of the people I support, and it can be the smallest things such as enabling them to spend as little as 10 minutes at a social function, which they could not have done before because their behaviour was a barrier or helping them get the job they have always wanted.”

Julie works with clients on behavioural support and advice, including Positive Behavioural Support Plans, as well as individual and family counselling, and identifying suitable housing.
