I have a son with extreme behavioural issues. The incredible team at Sunshines have tailored a therapy plan for him and we are seeing amazing success. I have received more help here than I have anywhere in the allied health industry. They have made us feel welcome loved and supported through our journey. My son’s successes is based on the services sunshines has provided. I cannot speak highly enough of Kayla, Jamie and the team.

Special mention to physio Lauren. She has been an invaluable support for my daughter and our entire family, I could never thank her enough for everything she has and does do for my baby. Your a rock star ✨

The Senior Adults OT assists me with understanding concepts, and gives me the tools to build my skills to meet my goals. I have been working with this OT for the part 6 months and I feel more confident in my day to day living. I have also seen the Physio and Speech Therapy team and have been impressed. I would highly recommend these services to others.

My son absolutely loves Sunshines, he always asks how long until his next visit, not many places I spoke to take older kids nearing teenage years but Sunshines was no problem. It appears hard to get in unless you book well in advance because they are busy but I think been busy says enough in itself - couldn’t be happier with this wonderful company and I love the atmosphere when you walk in- keep up the great work ☺️ Thank you for all your hard work Kate Warner
