Empowering individuals to achieve meaningful goals through personalised therapy.

Functional Focus Therapy considers the many parts of an individual’s life that make them whole. We understand that each individual and family is different and that difference should be celebrated.

It is our job to work alongside you and your specific needs to figure out ways that support development and independence through focusing on an individual’s strength areas and learning styles.

Groups are the perfect way to work on functional skills for multiple people at the same time, while creating connection and social inclusion. Creating the right mix of personalities, skills, strengths and interest areas is what group therapy is all about.
