Founder Catherine Brockie has always had an affinity with people who have special educational needs. With a background in teaching and also at the NHS behavioural intervention service, she has always worked hard to deliver a high quality service to those she works with.
Setting up her own services has enabled her to deliver the tailored support that she believes is needed in order to make a big difference to individuals and their families.
Having lived with and supported John in a residential home for seventeen years, he became like a son to Catherine. This means that Catherine has a deep understanding of the challenges faced by the families she works with. Most health and social care managers might struggle to imagine caring for someone day and night, for weeks on end, but Catherine has lived it. This experience informs the work of both her and her dedicated team.
“Where others see severe behavioural challenges, and judge the outside, I look for the person inside. Behaviours are simply a way of communicating.”
– Catherine Brockie, Founder of Corran Dean and Corran Vale
