Promoting health and well being through occupation.

We are a dedicated team of Occupational Therapists and WorkCover specialists who help employers align the performance of people with their organisational demands and provide injured workers with sustainable pathways back to work.

WHAT IS OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY

Occupational therapy is a client-centred 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.

Occupational therapists achieve this outcome by working with people and employers to enhance their ability to engage in the occupations they want to, need to, or are expected to, or by modifying the occupation or the environment to better support their occupational engagement.

WHAT IS AN OCCUPATIONAL THERAPIST

Occupational therapists have a broad education in the medical, social behavioural, psychological, psychosocial and occupational sciences which equips them with the attitudes, skills and knowledge to work collaboratively with people, individually or in groups or communities.

Occupational therapists believe that participation can be supported or restricted by the:

  • physical, effective or cognitive abilities of the individual
  • characteristics of the occupation
  • physical, social, cultural, attitudinal and legislative environments.

Occupational therapists are required to undertake a minimum of four years tertiary education and will hold either a bachelor or masters degree in occupational therapy; all practicing occupational therapists are registered health practitioners with the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency.
