I best introduce myself, I am Green Light’s New Board Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA). I have spent my earlier career working in earlier interventions, educational settings and the justice system, in South Wales. As well as, spending some time teaching English in Egypt. I am originally from Cornwall but have spent the last 6/7 years outside of this amazing county. It was upon my rather abrupt return, due to the global pandemic, that I found myself with my plans pulled from underneath me. It was at this point I remembered an email an old lecturer had sent me a job advert for Green Light years ago. This email sparked an interest in the company which I have followed on social media ever since. After spending some time looking through the usual job search engines and not seeing Green Light I decided to check the website directly. I saw they were advertising a position for a BCBA and put together an application. From the moment I submitted the application things moved very quickly; invite, video interview, phone call, contract, first day. All done within two and half weeks.

This constant improvement is a key part of Green Light’s ethos and I have already experienced this first hand. In my interview, I stated a particular interest in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (Steven Hayes, 2019) stating how I wanted to further develop my skills in the approach. Since joining my colleague and supervisor Ioanna Konstantinidou (BCBA) has provided me with formal training sessions and countless resources, encouragement and peer supervision in developing programmes to implement. This continued development of skills is ingrained into Green Light and is a key pillar of the approach offered.
