Occupational Therapy

Promoting health and well-being through occupation

Occupational therapy is a client-centered health profession concerned with promoting health and well-being through occupation. The primary goal of occupational therapy is to enable people to participate in the activities of everyday life.

Enabling people to participate in the activities of everyday life.

Occupational Therapists achieve this outcome by working with you and your community to enhance your ability to engage in the occupations you want to, need to, or are expected to do, or by modifying the occupation or the environment to better support your occupational engagement.

Functional Assessments


Comprehensive assessment of your functional ability to complete activities of daily living at home and in the community; to identify the need for further therapy input or modifications to the task or environment to enable you to achieve increased independence.

Cognitive Assessments


Our Occupational Therapists use both standardised and non-standardised assessments to establish any areas of deficit in cognition and the impact this has on your function; and work with you to improve your function or modify the task to enable increased independence.

Assistive Technology


Where it is identified that you have a need to increase your physical or cognitive function, our Occupational Therapists may make recommendations for assistive technology across a range of areas, from mobility aids to memory aids. We will identify the most appropriate technology required, and provide recommendations for you to obtain the item/s under your NDIS plan.

We offer a range of paediatric occupational therapy, with plans to expand in the near future
