Why we started

Timian's goal was to develop a training strategy that enabled staff to support people in crisis. When Timian Started in 1994 this wasn't the focus of many other training organisations, who were more concerned with teaching restraint techniques to combat violence. At that time much of the training in managing challenging behaviour was delivered with a heavy emphasis on restraint and using pain based techniques. We felt that this was unethical for supporting people who were often the most vulnerable in society. We developed a system focussing on understanding behaviour and trauma which would reflect our core values of dignity and quality of life. At the core of this system is an emphasis on the needs of the individual being supported using positive behavioural support.

“Timian has opened my eyes to a new way of dealing with challenging behaviour. This refreshing approach looks deeper into the reasons for behaviour, rather than just how to deal with it. "

Why Use Timian?

At Timian, we understand you want to create a positive, supportive environment for your staff and the people they support. To do that, you need to develop strategies to understand the needs communicated by people in crisis. The problem is, you need training from an established, certified company that understands your unique requirements. We believe you need to learn how to support people, not just their behaviours. We understand/know how challenging it can be to this with so many external pressures. Which is why we have spent the last twenty seven years working with organisations to develop communication strategies for de-escalation and restraint reduction.

“The school seems much calmer and there is less aggression towards staff. Staff are calmer and there has been much less need for intervention since the introduction of Timian. "
