What is your role at My Therapy House?
I’m one of the Speech Pathologists here!
How long have you been working at My Therapy House?
I joined My Therapy House in September 2022 and have completed 10 months (close to a year very soon yay!!! – time goes by so quickly!)
Why did you choose to work at My Therapy House?
I’ve wanted to work at a place with a team; where I feel supported, can gain knowledge from observing and interacting with colleagues and brainstorm ideas with them on how to support children and their families. That is exactly how I felt after work shadowing the staff at My Therapy House. From my chat with Dana and the team that day, I realised that I will get plenty of opportunities to learn, grow and develop new skills.
I also love play-based therapy, the foundation for work at My Therapy House (social-emotional development) and therapy using the DIR approach which made me join the team and I feel very lucky to work here as well as talking to and supporting parents!!
What is your favourite thing about working at My Therapy House?
Working with children and their families to help them develop new skills and supporting them on their therapeutic journey. I also love working with a fantastic team and the fact that we love what we do!
What were your favourite play activities when you were a child?
As a child, I loved playing with my dolls, barbies and teddies! I had a few cooking sets; I would cook food and have tea parties with them. I also enjoyed playing outdoors- making pretend food with flowers and talcum powder, playing with my pets and doing some gardening with my parents. I loved to play on the slide, swing and merry-go-round and would go to the park every Sunday.
What is your favourite thing to do when you are not working?
I enjoy listening to music, trying different cuisines and watching Netflix shows. I love to dance and I’m currently learning a few different dance styles!! I also like to travel although I haven’t had many opportunities to do so during the past few years due to covid and work.
What is your favourite food?
Anything savoury! I’ve tried a variety of cuisines after coming to Australia and I like them all.
What is your favourite saying?
“Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you” – Oprah Winfrey
What photo are you sharing?
I like to travel and visit new places and hence I’ve chosen pictures of me on two of my trips. The first picture is of me in Dubai (my first international trip in 2001) and the second picture is of me in Melbourne (my first solo trip in 2019).
