Point Cook Therapy Centre is a comprehensive allied health centre established in the Western Suburbs of Melbourne. We have been servicing the surrounding communities for the past ten years, and have recently undergone a name change to reflect the diversity and varied services that we proudly offer. We provide quality services for adults and children with varying needs and abilities to help them reach their full potential.
- Our speech pathologists help children, adolescents and adults with difficulties in speech clarity and fluency, language, listening, learning, literacy, pragmatics, social skills, feeding and swallowing, to reach their full potential.
- Our psychologists support people to develop life skills to deal with parenting and relationship issues, mental health issues including anxiety and depression, conflict resolution, emotional regulation, perception and perspective taking.
- Occupational therapy services may be accessed to manage sensory processing issues, and to develop self help, fine and gross motor skills.
One in seven Australians has some form of communication difficulty. At least twenty percent of four-year-old children have difficulty understanding and using language, and over thirty percent of people post stroke suffer loss of language (Speech Pathology Australia, 2014). One in a hundred children may have Autism (The Australian Advisory Board on Autism Spectrum, 2012). Depression is a leading cause of disability worldwide, and the Australian Bureau of Statistics estimates that almost half (45%) of the population will experience a mental health condition in their life time (National Survey of Mental Health and Wellbeing). A person’s ability to develop and maintain relationships, succeed at school, at work, and indeed in life, depends heavily on his/her communication skills, social skills, self help skills and emotional and mental wellbeing.
We provide comprehensive assessment, individualised therapeutic intervention and counselling, parent / family / carer support and guidance as required, to help each of our clients reach their full potential, develop confidence, promote wellbeing and maximise the quality of his or her life, in line with our values of:
