Youthrive Integrated Therapy Services

Youthrive Integrated Therapy Services

Youthrive is a unique service that provides three types of therapy – psychology, speech pathology and occupational therapy for kids and young people.

Our integrated model means children and teenagers receive high quality professional support in one location without the stress and cost of travelling to separate service providers. A child may need one, or a combination, of the three therapies.

We believe in working closely with families to get the best outcomes for all. This includes making sure our involvement doesn't end in the clinic. We also work within schools and the community too!

Youthrive is committed to helping kids and young people achieve their psychological and developmental goals.
