At Therapy Connect, we believe that better health belongs to everyone, regardless of where you live, and we know that better health comes from better access to the best care. That’s why we pride ourselves on matching the right therapist to meet the goals and needs of our clients, no matter what postcode they live. 

We go to great lengths to hire and retain the most highly skilled and experienced therapists from across the country to work in our team. And we really do mean across the country – our team of over seventy therapists are based all over – from coast to country and from caravans to high-rise apartments!

Our team has an average of 10+ years of experience, and they cover a wide range of specialities, so we make sure we match the skills of our therapists to the specific needs and goals of our clients, ensuring better outcomes. 

While we have a strong focus on working with children and adolescents with autism and developmental delays, our clients include NDIS participants of all ages.

Online Therapy is as effective as face to face therapy

The outcomes of online therapy have been proven to be as effective as in-person therapy outcomes, according to the scoping review of Australian Allied Health research by Iacono et al (2016).

Research conducted in collaboration with Therapy Connect and the University of Sydney shows that despite therapists being geographically remote from clients, they could deliver services consistent with contemporary practice and supported children to achieve positive, functional outcomes.

Other recent studies by Chen et al (2022) have shown that online therapy has positive outcomes for participants with Autism including social interaction, engagement, communication and speech, emotional regulation and anxiety reduction.
