Call us!

This is usually the best way to find out if we are what you need and can help you to address your rehab and capacity building needs.

Book your first consultation

Once we have gathered the relevant information we can get you booked in with the right therapist. Sometimes this might involve deciding between several disciplines to determine the best way to get started. Don’t worry, our intake process will guide you all the way.

Have your first session.

This will be your opportunity to ask any questions you might have, tell your story and have your clinician assess your needs and your goals. We can see you at your home, our clinic in St Leonards, in your office, gym or local pool – or a combination! We even have a telerehab option to support you if you live remotely.

Decide on your future plan

Following this, a comprehensive plan will be developed with you. In some cases, you may also need a report produced to support your future plans.

NB: If we can’t help you at this point for any reason, we will probably be able to direct you to the service that can.
