Occupational Therapists - thinking outside the box!


Gillian Jarvis

Paediatric Occupational Therapist

Gillian is an occupational therapist with a wealth of experience supporting families and their children to live a satisfying and rich life. Focusing on starting with a child's strengths, she quickly develops a rapport with children and their parents. Gillian is always aware of the bottom line and the stress and constraints families are working within. As a result, she aims for her input to be targeted, evidence based and effective. Working with children in small groups is a specialty, having worked in many kindergartens and ELCs.
