Bachelor of Occupational Therapy

Bianca is a fully qualified and registered Occupational Therapist with the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and is a member of Occupational Therapy Australia (OTA). Bianca provides services with both passion and energy and her main goal is to help clients reach their goals and maximise their independence within their daily occupations.

Bianca’s extensive background and experience working in both private and public sectors allows her to work with all individuals including children, adolescents and adults. Additionally, she has widespread experience working in a various hospital settings including acute, rehabilitation and geriatric wards. Bianca is committed to delivering evidence based interventions in order to provide the best outcomes for each client.

Bianca also incorporates Animal Assisted Therapy in her sessions and works in conjunction with her own therapy dog Cooper, a Border Collie puppy (and very cute). Cooper, currently in training, will be working alongside Bianca at the Croydon clinic. You can follow Cooper on Instagram: @cooper_thetherapydog.

The benefit of utilising Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT) in conjunction with Occupational Therapy is that it constructively blends animals into the therapeutic environment which assists in achieving positive outcomes by creating a safe and trusting environment. In addition to her work, Bianca’s other passion is her array of animals and since early childhood she has always been a keen horse rider. Growing up on a hobby farm has allowed her to care for a wide variety of farmyard and domestic pets and her plans are to study and incorporate accredited equine therapy in the near future.
