Therapy Pro Melbourne team member Allan Spinks realised he’d found his reason for being early in his studies to be an occupational therapist.

Allan is all about hope and making the best of what we have in life.

“I help people become the best version of themselves possible,” he says.

“The power is with the individual: it’s their life, their disability. I’m here to support them to get ahead.”

OTs are daily life specialists who support clients to improve key relationships and daily living functions—bathing, toileting, dressing, eating, walking—as well as school, workplace and community involvement.

Allan works with children and adults to improve their well-being and independence.

He has a particular interest and experience in supporting clients with physical disability or injury, psychological conditions or a combination, transition to work.

Allan also can help clients with aids and equipment assessments and may make recommendations for minor modifications at home to improve independence and safety.

Solutions-based in his therapy approach, Allan believes in emphasising strengths and abilities rather than weaknesses or struggles. In building resilience, good situations can be built on and repeated.

Allan is a James Cook University graduate.
