Predict | Prevent | Protect

Predict: "I provide advanced methods of predicting a threat to a persons safety based on behavioural events, this is different from profiling, which is based on types of people". 

Prevent: "Many situations can be de-escalated by using the correct language when critical conversations present themselves. Saying the wrong thing at the wrong time can result in a violent response or harbour resentment that re-emerges in later confrontations".

Protect: "The use of force is a last resort to protect yourself or others and is a result of failed early strategies or lack of information at the time. My approach is simple, highly effective, easy to remember and ethically sound when dealing with a child or adult".
