Helping families to discover their 'just right'!

Welcome to GoldilOTs.

Our family focused Occupational Therapy Practice supports individuals of all ages at different stages of life. We listen and learn together with compassion and patience, discovering meaning and connections. We aim to optimise learning, nurture uniqueness and confidence. We believe our holistic approach will spark motivation and encourage positive engagement in everyday life. We look forward to sharing the journey with you.

 

ABOUT US

Occupational Therapy can help families and children to enhance their engagement in everyday activities  – from socialising with friends, getting out and about, playing and learning new skills at home,  kinder, school and work.  

We provide evidenced based and family-centred assessments and intervention. This is based on individual strengths, difficulties, age and stage of development. We consider what you can do in the moment, the potential within you and make steps towards achieving your goals.

Together we partner with families, educators, health professionals and carers. We value the importance of a team approach to develop flexible strategies that can be used in a range of settings.  Our goal-directed therapy is innovative, thoughtful and creative.
