“We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”
ISM were founded in 2014 to provide interventions and training throughout Scotland. We work with individuals, community groups, local authorities and private care companies.
The services we provide are:
Sharron Reilly - Director
Sharron has worked for more than 20 years in justice, health, social care and education. Sharron is passionate in her work with children and families and her therapeutic stance allows her to engage with young people easily. She has a specialist interest in attachment and trauma, working with parents or carers whose young people have experienced attachment and trauma difficulties. She has a BA (Hons) in Social Science / Psychology, an MSc in Forensic Psychology and an MSc in Applied Psychology with Children & Young People. She is a qualified and registered Clinical Associate in Applied Psychology and is a Graduate member of the British Psychological Society. She is currently undertaking a Professional Doctorate in Forensic Psychology with the University of Nottingham. Dr Nicola Wylie is Sharron’s practice supervisor.
Martin Reilly – Director
Having successfully facilitated more than 150 courses, Martin was promoted to lead facilitator in 2018. While he continues to facilitate the DDRS courses he also offers support and supervision to new facilitators. He has first-hand experience of the criminal justice system and we believe that his own rehabilitative journey allows him the unique position to empathise and build a rapport with all clients. He has been involved in the development of the DDRS since its inception and has been crucial for building client contact and engagement. Martin is also heading our innovative preventative drink driving courses where he is currently making contact with employers and organisations that would benefit from this course.
Tracey Trousdale – ISM Office Manager
Tracey joined the ISM team in October 2016 with a goal of introducing consistent and sustainable administrative practices. Her role evolved quickly with the growth of the business and she developed effective and efficient operating process. Tracey is meticulously organised which gained her a promotion into the role of Office manager in 2018. Tracey is now responsible for all corporate reporting, scheduling and coordination. Not content with this busy role, Tracey has also commenced facilitating the DDRS courses proving that she is a woman of many talents!
