Meet the Therapy Pro Toowoomba Therapists

Fiona McColl, clinical social worker

Fiona McColl, clinical social worker

No family is perfect. All have challenges, issues or problems.

Therapy Pro Ipswich clinical social worker Fiona McColl loves jigsaws, cryptic crosswords and unravelling complex life dynamics.

Fiona is a rare bird in Australia: a clinical social worker, trained in psychology, sociology, social work and clinical therapy. She has experience working with disability, child protection, mental health and domestic violence and a long-standing interest in trauma, adult and child attachment and family-relatedness.

She can work with you for behavioural support and advice, including Positive Behaviour Support Plans, and can provide individual and family counselling.

Fiona comes to you and she’s also tech-savvy, able to support you via telephone, email or Skype. That’s a Therapy Pro difference of convenience.

“What if you didn’t need to continue to feel like you were carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders? What if you didn’t need to do it alone? Everyone needs a helping hand from time to time. Don’t be afraid to reach out!”

Fiona unravels complex situations, looking at where she can make a difference one-on-one with you as an individual, within a family as well as society and systems more broadly.

And yes, Fiona does have an accent. It’s Canadian, not American.

Anne Newsome, Occupational Therapist

Anne Newsome, occupational therapist

Anne Newsome has worked as a community-based occupational therapist for the past 27 years.

In joining Therapy Pro’s Toowoomba team, Anne has found what she calls “the golden nugget” to make a difference in the lives of clients of all ages.

Anne uses both her experience in life and as a clinician to enable clients to lead meaningful lives and become as independent as possible within the bounds of their ability.

Anne grew up in UK, raised a family in Rockhampton and moved to Toowoomba to commence her new job opportunity with Therapy Pro.

Anne assists clients to achieve activity of daily living goals, by undertaking comprehensive assessments of current level of function, addressed by specific therapy interventions to maximise independence.

“I am thrilled to be working for Therapy Pro. This is an organisation that walks the talk, and provides its therapists with the same “wrap-around” support and values that we are then able to pass onto our clients”.

Man Yan “Minty” Ma, speech and language pathologist

Toowoomba-based Minty Ma admits she is a bit of linguistics and language nerd — an interest that definitely comes in handy as a speech and language pathologist with Therapy Pro.

Always interested in both language and medicine, Minty now combines the two to help clients with speech, communication and swallowing difficulties around Toowoomba and beyond.

Minty assists with speech, language, swallowing, voice and multimodal communication assessments and interventions.

“I feel the main part of my role is to give people empowerment and the ability to make their own choices. With some clients it is teaching them new skills and for others it is helping them to regain the skills they have lost, through accident or injury.”

Minty is fluent in Mandarin and Cantonese as well as English.

How did she get the name Minty? When her Chinese birth name Man Yan proved too much of a mouthful for her young school friends to pronounce, she was dubbed Minty and the nickname has stuck. Sweet!

Katelyn Pascoe, occupational therapist

Occupational therapist Katelyn Pascoe—‘Katey’ to friends and clients—has joined the Therapy Pro Toowoomba team, excited by the prospect of bringing services to families beyond a capital city.

Born on the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia, growing up in the Barossa Valley, and gaining clinical experience in various rural locations such as Broken Hill and Port Augusta, she knows it’s not always been easy to access allied health therapists when you live in regional or rural areas.

And that’s absolutely wrong in her books…

“All Australians deserve the right to enjoy life in a meaningful and fulfilling way, and to be able to access services despite whatever issues there are that make that challenging.”

Katey can help you improve daily living functions, through assessment and appropriately tailored intervention. This can include developmental, sensory, mobility, postural, safe travel, aids and equipment, and home modifications including home safety and accessibility.

She also has experience supporting people with people with mental health conditions.

A graduate of the University of South Australia, Katey gained hands-on experiences working in an Aboriginal health service, working with parents and organisations to advocate for greater accessibility to NDIS.

Rebecca Sims, psychologist (provisional)

Toowoomba’s Rebecca Sims has come full circle, after 10 years’ study, to return to the city of her birth and commence her career with Therapy Pro as a psychologist (provisional).

In the final stages of a Masters of Clinical Psychology, Rebecca has hit the ground running.

She works clients of varying ages and disabilities in Toowoomba and on the Darling Downs.

Rebecca has a passion of helping clients with psychological assessment and interventions, behavioural support and advice including writing and compiling Positive Behaviour Support Plans; individual and family counselling; and psychometric assessments.

She also works with clients identifying suitable accommodation options.

Rebecca left school intending to pursue a musical career and had gained a Bachelor of Music, when a chance meeting tuned her into her true vocation.

“I didn’t even realise what a psychologist did until I met a psychologist who told me what her job entailed and I knew that’s what I wanted to do— it’s the best decision I ever made.”

With a broad range of professional experience under her belt, including working with inmates at the Southern Queensland Correctional Centre at Gatton, Rebecca is excited about her new role, helping clients in the city that she has always called home.
