About us

Sensoplay is a Sensory Integration Practice. We are a team of dedicated and passionate Occupational Therapists working with children from birth to adolescence. We use a variety of approaches to treat children and enhance each child’s full potential. We also aim to empower parents with the knowledge and skills that they need to support their child's development.

At Sensoplay we encourage active participation from our parents and consult with other professionals and specialists working with the child. We keep up-to-date with the latest developments in the field of Occupational Therapy. Each therapist brings unique skills, training, and professional expertise to use in developing effective treatment programs collaboratively with each child and family.

    I completed my B. OT degree in 2001. I started my journey in paediatrics and specialised in Sensory Integration. I believe in continuous learning in order to equip all children and parents who crossed my path. I love entering the imaginary worlds of little ones and support them to develop a very strong sense of self and independence.
