Sally de Wijn

Director SdW Therapy Services

OccuPLAYtional Therapist


Sally undertook her Bachelor's Degree in Occupational Therapy and Psychological Sciences at La Trobe University graduating in 2012, this cemented her love of wanting to help and work with children.


Sally is a member of Occupational Therapy Australia as well as APHRA. In 2015 Sally completed post-graduate studies in Child-Centered Play Therapy (CCPT), with Play Therapy Australia. Sally is currently completing her Training in DIR Floortime. 


Sally works with children through play to develop skills and increase their abilities within their daily life. Sally uses a sensory, play and child-directed approach to her therapy sessions. Through the use of play, Sally works with children and families to rebuild the developmental blocks that have been missed due to a change in development.  By allowing the rebuilding of the foundation skills to a child's development they are then provided with a solid base which assists in allowing higher level skills to be developed.


Sally is a fun-filled, enthusiastic therapist who looks out for the best in each and every one of her clients. She loves her job and thoroughly enjoys working with her clients. Sally is a big advocate for letting children be children, and not making them grow up too quickly. If there is a puddle on the footpath Sally will be the first one to jump in it – followed by all the children around.


Sally believes in the power of play and will often assign ‘homework’ to parents to simply play with their children in different environments.


Sally believes growing up is overrated and is determined to be a child forever.
