Mahek completed her Bachelor of Applied Sciences (Occupational Therapy) Honours at the University of Sydney. For her Honours degree, Mahek completed a research project in which she assisted in developing and testing an application called the Healthy Start App, designed to support parents to monitor healthy lifestyles in their children. After dedicating one and a half years to research, Mahek is committed to delivering evidence-based practices during her therapy sessions.
To further advance her clinical knowledge, Mahek has completed courses such as Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotions (SPACE), DIR Floortime, Becoming a Behaviour Detective and a Study Group with the Masters.
Mahek’s passion for working with children drove her to work in paediatrics. She loves seeing confidence in children grow as they overcome challenging tasks. Mahek is committed to providing family centred therapy, appreciating the importance of the interactions with both child and family in order to build rapport and trust.
Outside of work, Mahek enjoys trying a new recipe and socialising with friends. She loves to travel and is currently on a mission to visit all the countries in Asia. When she is not ticking off the next country on her bucket list, she likes to take short getaways up the coast and spend time with family.
