The Umbo Difference
Umbo champions person-centred therapy. It means the person receiving therapy leads the conversation. We believe that the most effective therapy occurs when support is given in the environment where the person lives, learns, works or plays. Therefore we work with the family, and teach skills to you or to other supporters. This means you’re achieving real-life goals, rather than just achieving goals in a clinic.
At Umbo online therapy is not just zoom plus business-as-usual. It’s much more diverse than simply videoconferencing. Umbo therapists provide an individualised approach to each person, using the latest evidence, and a variety of technologies and engagement techniques.

Unsure what you need?
No problem, just send us an inquiry explaining the difficulties that you/your child/your family member is having and we can let you know whether a speech pathologist, occupational therapist or other kind of professional would be most appropriate. It’s better to ask and get a clear answer!
