Simone Brown brings to Therapy Pro clients the rare combination of professional skills and knowledge and practical lived experience.

An occupational therapist, Simone can help you improve daily living functions—like bathing, dressing, toileting, eating, community access and leisure activities —through assessment and appropriately tailored intervention.

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

Simone is both passionate and well-experienced in helping improve social participation for clients with sensory processing challenges.

While much of her OT work has been with adults, Simone has oodles of experience in supporting children to gain greater independence and get involved in their ‘everyday’. She was a disability support worker for ten years, working with infants and pre-schoolers and their families, and a family day care worker before that. Simone also has personal lived experience supporting a family member with a disability.

“I believe in building rapport and actively listening, to understand what’s important—what matters—to the individual, to best assist a client achieve what is important to them” she says.

“Collaboratively empowering a person to be able to do the things important to them, such as putting on socks independently, can be a huge confidence booster and is a very rewarding aspect of my professional career.”

Simone is a graduate of the University of the Southern Cross.
