Social Work

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.

We’re all about achieving client goals and setting the path to get there.

Our social workers offer a critical, clinical lens to many complex situations.

Our social workers work with a client's support systems to provide a holistic approach to complex challenges.

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.

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

How we work with you

Our therapists support clients from babies through to ageing adults, working with toddlers, young children, adolescents and adults across the age spectrum.

We offer flexible services, with social worker services available both face-to-face and via telehealth.

Our social workers offer a holistic approach, supporting the individual, family, carer, and community collaboratively to lead people to achieve the lives they want.

Working remotely allows our social workers to support individuals face-to-face in their environment, allowing for an insight into the individual and systemic (structural and cultural) factors that may be negatively impacting the client’s ability to engage with the social world.
