Jonas’ passion for the disability sector spans over 15 years. In 2006 he started working as a support worker for one of Perth’s leading disability service providers, and because of his strong empathic attribute, he gravitated towards assisting individuals with challenging behaviours.
PHASE was created to help and train like-minded individuals who share the same passion and drive that Jonas has. He is very enthusiastic about people who are empathically driven, to be the change in the life of others less privileged in our communities.
Jonas believes that to succeed in this area of support work working with challenging behaviour and emotional intelligence is required to be at its peak. These are the strengths that have helped Jonas become a leader in challenging behaviour. Jonas’ ability to understand, use and manage emotions to regulate stress, communicate effectively, empathise with others, overcome challenges, and diffuse a difficult situation are just a few reasons he is known as the “Challenging Behaviour Whisperer”!
Jonas has completed his Masters Degree in Project Management, Executive Leadership and Business Process Design courses with MIT Sloan University and a Certificate IV in Disability. His expertise lies in operational management, strategic planning, fostering leadership and advocacy for people with a disability. Jonas is extremely dedicated to his work, and his focus is committing on the promise of quality service delivery.
