Community Help Service is committed to the health and safety of our staff, volunteers and clients. During the current coronavirus situation, we have put in place guidelines which protect our community whilst reducing the impact on our services. This includes reducing our in-office staff and using video conferencing for our meetings and training.
1) Clients must wear a mask at all times whilst visiting the Centre unless explicitly stated by their therapist. They must also sanitise their hands upon entry.
2) Clients should arrive as close to their appointment time as possible and will be greeted at the door by their therapist. The waiting room is not in use.
3) Do not attend your appointment if you develop flu symptoms or respiratory complaints.
4) It is important that should you experience any COVID symptoms or test positive following a visit to our Centre, you notify CHS in writing, especially if your visit occurred within the 2 days prior to your symptoms appearing, so that appropriate action can be taken promptly.

The Situated Behavioural Interventions Method (SBI-Method) aims at providing practical and individualized guidelines to parents of children and teenagers diagnosed with Attention Deficit & Hyperactivity Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Anxiety and other executive functions difficulties, to help them succeed in specific daily life situations.
Dear Parent(s),Dr. Bruhl
My name is Dr Bruhl and I am a clinical psychologist with a Ph.D. in cognitive psychology. I am specialised in Attention Deficit & Hyperactivity Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Specific Learning Disorders, Anxiety-Based Behaviour and general executive function difficulties in children and adolescents. I am a trained practitioner in CBT, ABA and in most structured behaviour interventions based on cognitive behaviour therapy.
Based on almost 10 years of clinical experience, I have recently developed the "Situated Behaviour Intervention Method" (SBI-Method). This is aimed at training parents who wish to establish an environment where each situational expectation is made clear, understanding, structured and predictable for the child.
The first goal is to enhance good communication and provide children with the best chance to emit expected/adapted behaviours and minimise tantrums, aggression, emotional meltdowns, anxiety and avoidance behaviours.
The second goal of the method is to help children achieve their full potential in all areas of their daily lives (social, emotional, learning, family, etc.).
The training is organised in the form of a workshop. You will obtain the full one-day training. By the end of this workshop you will have the strategies to provide individualized solutions to each difficult situation your child or student faces.
To create a tailor-made method that corresponds uniquely to your personal daily living and/or learning environments, with the aim of empowering you with concrete tools for enabling your child to:
- Succeed in everyday life tasks,
- Manifest adapted behaviour in most situations in which the child finds him/herself.
- Develop autonomous coping skills at home
- Acquire independent learning strategies for school.
We work in small groups to ensure you receive the attention you deserve.
Parents with children/adolescents diagnosed with ASD, ADHD and/or executive functions difficulties and Anxiety related disorders.
