To help you stay safe and stay at home your therapy supports are available to you online

We expanded our tele-health video services so your therapy supports are consistently accessible.  

Telehealth services are an evidenced based alternative mode of service

when people are not able to attend therapy in person. 


We can all work together and play our part to stay safe and stay at home during this time.  We've supported our clients to successfully switch to telehealth with multiple platforms you can use.  Our team are happy to answer your questions about telehealth videoconferencing or seeing a therapist in person during this time.   Together we can support each other in our community.

Lots of people tell us they can't believe the difference a home based service made to their therapy.  We often hear people say they have more energy to focus on therapy and achieving results, rather than trying to travel, wait, or find a car park.  Contact us about our tele-health and home based services, we're happy to assist you.
