Therapy services

Therapists from many different disciplines work together to provide a comprehensive health care service. They work with you to reach your goals.

Therapists, sometimes called allied health professionals, work in private practice and in hospitals, schools, disability organisations and community services. Sometimes, therapists offer similar services but their approaches may be different.

Therapists are trained at university and commit to a program of continuing professional development to ensure the therapy they provide is safe and appropriate for your needs.

It is important that you feel comfortable with and trust your therapist. Choosing a therapist through a professional association ensures that you find one who is correctly trained and accredited, where appropriate.
