“I have always been passionate about promoting and facilitating childrens’ well-being, and feel lucky enough to be able to achieve this through Occupational Therapy”.
In 2012, Sophie Bilsborough completed her undergraduate Bachelors Degree in Human Movement, before graduating from The University of Sydney with a Masters degree in Occupational Therapy. Throughout her studies, Sophie gained valuable experience working with children from a variety of backgrounds, with varying disabilities including, Down Syndrome, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Developmental Delay, and Gross and Fine Motor difficulties. Sophie also has personal experience, caring for her intellectually disabled brother, which she finds challenging at times but mostly rewarding seeing him overcome his difficulties!
Sophie has an apt for establishing rapport with children of all ages, and likes to create a fun but challenging environment for children to get the most out of their Occupational Therapy. Sophie has developed a particular interest in working with children with handwriting and motor co-ordination difficulties. Sophie works at our Balgowlah clinic, and also sees children on a weekly basis at Shore school.
Throughout her life, Sophie has always been passionate about keeping fit and healthy, and in her spare time, enjoys endurance trail running, photography, and exploring anywhere along the coastline!
