Therapy Assistance

A Therapy Assistant works under the supervision and delegation of an Allied Health Professional (AHP) to assist with therapeutic and program related support.

Therapy Assistance at Sunny can only be accessed with the involvement and supervision of a suitably qualified allied health practitioner.


Our Therapy Assistants can work in collaboration with Sunny therapists, Sunny affiliates, or your existing therapist (check with them first). 

Programs are offered in 10-week blocks and programs are reviewed after10 weeks. If at any point, review by the supervising therapist is required then this can be arranged.

Our Therapy Assistants can offer:
