We Are Network Interventions

Meet The Team

Louise is the founder of and Consultant Supervisor for NETwork Interventions. She has 19 years of experience in providing effective, validated and successful interventions and education services to children, teenagers and adults. A large part of her career has been spent training therapists and schools in effective interventions and developing robust programmes for government organisations. 


Beginning with receiving a BSc (Honours) degree in Psychology, Louise went on to Post Graduate studies in Applied Behaviour Analysis, a Masters in Child Studies (Education and Policy) and is a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA) of 'excellent standing' with Supervisor status. Louise also has Post Graduate Certification in Specific learning difficulties (SpLD) specialising in Dyslexia. Louise is constantly updating her training and knowledge, most recently specifically specialising in Dyslexia and Co-morbid conditions such as ADD and ADHD. 


She has worked internationally, notably for several years in Australia where she designed and delivered intensive and informal workshops to professionals working in the field of autism. She was also part of the team who developed and rolled out the country's first intensive behavioural early intervention  programme. In addition to this, Louise has continually taken part in clinical research, leading and piloting her own research over recent years. Her clinical research has been in gender differences in those with ADHD and ADD and the impact of early detection and effective interventions. Her other research has been in gender differences in those with Autism, developing a very early detection and intervention tool for parents and early years teachers. This has enabled Louise to work with extremely young babies and children with suspected ASD, those at risk of developing it and babies and toddlers with neonatal stroke and traumatic brain injury. 


Louise is now based in Surrey, UK although she travels across the country to deliver interventions to families and professionals being recognised as an expert in the field of Autism spectrum conditions, Brain Injury and Specific learning difficulties.

Emma Allen

1 to 1 Therapist

Emma is a key team member, working in a one to one capacity with some of our families. Her background is in travel and hospitality where she worked in the specialist assistance team for over 13 years, supporting clients with a range of both physical and intellectual disabilities with their travel requirements.


Emma also has many years of experience supporting children who have been diagnosed with ASC, ADHD and PDA  on both a personal and professional level.


She has been a keen horse rider since the age of 5 and for the past 10 years has been sharing her love and passion of horses as a volunteer at Epsom Riding for the disabled. Emma has no plans to ever leave this role, although if we could we would snap up all of her hours here!


As a result of Emma's many years working as a travel specialist, her volunteer work and with her own personal family experiences, Emma brings valuable insight to our team. She has a real gift not just for getting the very best out of the children we work with, but understanding what our families go through and walking with them. Emma also has a wealth of experience when it comes to funding applications and EHCPs.


Emma has a fun, but structured approach to working with young people and is enjoying developing these skills as part of the Network Interventions/Bridge Flexi School  family.

Shelley Brown

Consultant and ACT Therapist

Shelley has worked with Louise for 16 years and currently works with us remotely from Canada, where she has been working in the field of Behaviour Analysis for 20 years. In that time, she has completed a diploma in Behaviour Science Technology, a Bachelor degree in Psychology, a Masters degree in Professional Education with a focus on Applied Behaviour Analysis and obtained her BCBA. Most importantly, she has had the wonderful opportunity to work with a variety of families and service providers along the way.

Starting her career working directly in family homes, Shelley learned the importance of individualising treatment plans to help each unique family thrive. Taking experience from working in schools, one to one teaching centres and group homes, Shelley continues to embed family values into her work. 

Embracing the “learn to learn” concept, Shelley believes each family has the capacity to learn and implement Behaviour Analysis in their homes and strives to provide families with the tools they require to be as independent as possible in that pursuit. 

Shelley is our consultant and she will work with you through the assessment completion, program development and provide parent coaching for program implementation. For those seeking support to live mindfully through the process, Shelley offers Acceptance and Commitment Therapy sessions to our families.
