“When a tree struggles to produce fruit, you try to understand it’s environment and make adjustments to it, instead of fixing the tree itself.”

How I work

Get to know Yasara S

How can you support people?

Yasara works collaboratively with her clients and their families to develop socially significant goals, empowers appropriate ways to communicate needs, provides positive strategies to express or regulate emotions, implements environmental adaptations to support her clients, and ultimately aims to empower her clients to develop to their full potential.

How does your background shape the way you work?

Prior to joining Therapy Pro, Yasara has gained experience in providing evidence-based behavioural interventions to individuals across the lifespan in both community and clinical settings. She has 3+ years of experience working with clients who present neurodevelopmental differences, and has previously provided therapy for individuals presenting behaviours of concern such as physical aggression, verbal aggression, self-injurious behaviours, and property destruction. This allows her to look beyond a disability, and see individuals hopes and aspirations.

What is your approach to working with people?

Yasara always strives to give her clients a sense of independence, choice, and control by offering person-centred therapy, as it allows her to develop individualised plans that brings about meaningful change for both the client and their caregivers. She creates a safe space with a delicate blend of empathy, fun and comfort, in the aim to empower her clients to recognise their own potential.
