About OCC Therapy

OCC Therapy started out as On Call Children’s Therapy Network back in 2008. Founded by our own Dr Fiona Jones, we began as a mobile paediatric Occupational Therapy Service that visited local schools. However, as we realised there was a growing need for flexible locations, appointment times, and staff specialties, we diversified and found ourselves a permanent base in 2010.

Today, OCC Therapy is passionate about supporting children to reach their fullest potential. We know that the “fullest potential” for each child is totally different! That’s why we select and tailor our support and techniques to each child and their needs. Maximising your child’s ability to live, learn, and play is the priority, so we take a practical and strengths-based approach to therapy.

Occupational Therapy calls for Flexibility & Consistently Updated, Evidence-Based Practices

Endeavouring to provide the highest standard of care for each family we work with, everything we do is underpinned by international best practices. So, our therapists are given every opportunity to engage in further education and training, have access to high quality resources, and of course have the support throughout their everyday practice. Our goal is to enable children to participate in all areas of their lives and grow into healthy, happy, and fulfilled adults.
