We've all got a superpower


About Us

Welcome to Playsense Occupational Therapy!  


We are a family centred practice and build close relationships with the families we work with. Caregivers are the most important people in shaping children's lives, therefore we work to involve families in everything we do.


Children's self esteem is central to all our interventions and is fostered by taking a collaborative and child centred approach rather than a behaviour shaping approach. We ensure that all children have a sense of ownership over the therapy process which motivates them and engages them in reaching their goals. 

We value children's autonomy, mastery and purpose and we welcome and celebrate neurodiversity. We support children to be curious about how they want to connect with others and what works for them.
