My name is Vanessa Haydock, I have a Master’s degree in behaviour and a first class undergraduate degree in Psychology. I have many years’ experience in the field of behaviour and Autism, whereby I started off as a therapist, now working as an independent consultant.

I implement, analyse and assess behaviour to help autistic children overcome barriers that they may face when it comes to learning or communicating, supporting behaviours of which may be challenging and providing them with important life skills to be as independent as possible in their environment.

I am also a qualified personal trainer and health coach, using positive behaviour support to help modify and improve healthy behaviours amongst adults and children.

The reason I am involved with REACH North West is because it’s an amazing charity and I want to continue to motivate and professionally guide as many families/parents as possible to help their little ones reach their full potential.

I love the passion at REACH North West and the aspirations they have for every child they work with and I also believe in their values and goals.
