Let us introduce you to our leadership team, therapists and counsellors, specialists, therapy assistants, and administration team!
Our Leadership Team
Founder & Director
Bobbi is the Founder and Director of Bobbi Cook Behaviour Management (BCBM). She provides leadership of BCBM as well as leading workshops, webinars, and speaking at conferences. Bobbi has 30+ years working in behaviour therapy and is committed to providing services to help families move forward.
I provide counselling/therapy for individuals and families. I also supervise behaviour therapists, counsellors and therapy assistants in the delivery of work tasks and client service.
I am passionate about making a connection with the client. When I see them relax, become open/honest/authentic. When they say “I have never told anyone this before” that’s when I know they have “felt held” and we can do some great work together. No feeling like it, and I’m amazed and grateful every time it occurs.

My therapeutic passion area is around, but not limited to, Primary School aged children (5 – 12 years old). This is because I believe everyone has the right to access a great, educational experience.
