Umbo is a social enterprise and a registered NDIS provider. We also cater to private clients. We aim to start you on our clinical intake process within 1 week of receiving your request for therapy.

Is online therapy effective?

Yes! A growing body of evidence shows that online delivery of therapy can be as effective as face to face, including for children.

Online therapy has many other benefits too, including being convenient and accessible for people in regional and rural areas.

The Umbo Difference

Umbo champions person-centred therapy. It means the person receiving therapy leads the conversation. We regularly ask for feedback to make sure you are happy with your therapist and services.

Our average therapist feedback rating is 4.9 out of 5 stars.

Unsure what you need?

No problem, just send us an inquiry explaining the difficulties that your child 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!
