Our Core Values


We respect people for who they are and for their knowledge, skills and experience as individuals and team members.


We do what is right even when no one is watching. We believe that nothing is more important than out reputation.

Team Work

We all make the difference. It’s when we share our skills, knowledge and experience we become one diverse fun team.


We seek to “walk in others’ shoes” and approach our service with genuine heartfelt concern and empathy.


To operate our practice in a highly prudent and diligent manner; to use the resources with which we have been entrusted and to honour the trust placed in us by our clients.


We seek to be curious, ask for help, and demonstrate an ability to grow. We own and learn from our mistakes.

About Us

We are a team of passionate and experienced occupational therapists, providing specialised services for adults across North Queensland. We believe that everybody deserves to live their life to the fullest potential. In particular, we support adults who are experiencing difficulty due to:
  • Mental health and wellbeing conditions
  • Developmental disabilities
  • Psychosocial concerns
  • Intellectual/Learning Disabilities
  • Brain injuries

We are dedicated to pursuing your individual aspirations. In practical terms, this means we help to develop functional performance, enhance independence, build skills and confidence, improve mind wellness, and provide practical support in conjunction with your support network.

Meaning and purpose are increased in life when you can participate in and enjoy personally important activities and environments. We are guided daily by our vision of unlocking potential.

Our Approach

We come to you

For therapy to be effective, it needs to be relevant to your own environment. By coming to you, we gain unique insight into your ordinary way of life and daily activities. While we have offices in Townsville and Cairns, we understand that you may feel most comfortable at home or in a familiar setting. Our mobile service covers many rural communities across North Queensland.

Holistic & collaborative

We work closely with you, your family and other support networks for information gathering, assessment, goal-setting and implementation of a tailored plan. Family members and friends benefit from this collaborative process, as they learn how to deal with the demands of care-giving, and also learn how to balance their daily responsibilities and gain additional independence themselves.


Our approach is centred on your strengths, needs and aspirations. We Identify your capabilities and obstacles to develop a tailor-made therapy plan. This is an incremental, step-by-step plan which provides bite-size goals for you, your family and support network.


We are available outside business hours to support you. For example, if your goal is to independently use public transport, your OT or therapy assistant can be at your home at 7.30am to help establish morning routines.

Unlocking potential

Our vision in action: we ensure individuals have continual opportunities to explore and engage their highest potential. We strive to enhance the individual’s wellbeing, purpose and meaning in life.
