At Heartland Occupational Therapy we recognise that “the part can never be well unless the whole is well” (Plato). A person’s wellness includes one’s physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual health. We work closely to determine an individual’s strengths, challenges and goals and tailor interventions to help the individual harness their strengths and participate in life activities.
Heartland Occupational Therapy is a private boutique based in Charters Towers in North Queensland. We offer face to face services to Charters Towers, Ravenswood and Hughenden. We also offer clinical consults via telehealth. We understand the rural context and work with clients of all ages to improve quality of life and function.
Our Director and principal Occupational Therapist Shannon Smith, established this company in 2021. With the goal of making clinical Occupational Therapy services more available to rural and remote Queensland. Shannon was tired of seeing bush families experience inequalities in rural health care, having been raised in the bush herself.
Occupational Therapy services offered include hand therapy, lymphoedema, vascular, burns and scar management. And holistic functional assessments, interventions and therapy for clients, with a physical or mental health concern to help them achieve a better quality of life.
Here at Heartland Occupational Therapy, we care about you and your individual health journey and look forward to working with you.
