Therapy PRO has supported over 6,500 people
Our Therapy Pro social worker team are highly skilled and committed university graduates and registered allied health professionals.
Therapy Pro social workers assist clients in connecting and interacting with the world around them, leading to greater outcomes to enjoy everyday life.
The Therapy Pro Social Worker Team
The social worker’s lens is key in identifying, assessing and improving complex situations.
Social workers develop evidence-informed assessments, planning and interventions with a ‘client empowerment’ framework. This framework considers the impact of health, psychosocial or other needs of the individual and their support systems and aims to work towards empowering people with disability to choose how to live their life.
Our social workers have a clinical focus on capacity building – whether our clients are looking to engage with family and friends on a deeper level, build new relationships, try a new hobby, take on a new job, start studying, or venture out of their comfort zone, our Therapy Pro social workers are committed to working with our clients to strengthen independence and resilience. This is achieved practically, allowing our clients to overcome personal difficulties and structural barriers. This leads to greater community inclusion and engagement, resulting in a greater sense of belonging and daily satisfaction.
Due to the complexity of work, social workers are regularly involved in multidisciplinary teams. This is especially true when interventions occur within the complex social, psychological, family, and institutional dynamics. In this respect, social workers can inform the decision-making capacities of other professionals and the multidisciplinary team.
World Social Work Day 2023: Social Work at Therapy Pro
This year’s theme for World Social Work Day is ‘Respecting Diversity Through Joint Social Action’. At Therapy Pro, being an NDIS-registered provider of allied health services, we’re reflecting on the ways we respect diversity in the disability space.
Our Therapy Pro social workers can:
- Create richer connections between individuals and their families and communities, and develop opportunities for strong social relationships
- Link individuals with both formal and informal supports, depending on their clinical needs
- Provide functional behaviour assessments
- Develop positive behaviour support plans
- Provide emotional regulation therapy and social skills that contribute to positive social outcomes
- Provide anger management therapy or help clients to access anger management programs, or assist with mediation and conflict resolution
- Facilitate necessary assessments including capacity, functioning, environment and development, supporting access requirements for housing and accommodation
- Increase our clients’ capacity, enabling them to access employment or educational opportunities, as well as building confidence through increased social skills
- Provide counselling, including grief or trauma counselling and other therapeutic supports and interventions, including psychotherapy using evidence-based therapies
- Offer psychoeducation to a client, their family, carers, supports and systems

Frequently Asked Questions
Social workers work with complexity of needs and complexity of relationships.
Your social worker will work with you to build trusting relationships with your service providers, respond to any particular requests for help, identify the practical support you may need, and to coordinate with other professionals involved in providing support.
The more specific your goals are, the better! Our social workers don’t judge – in fact, they love working with clients to achieve goals that are meaningful to them.
