Ripples Allied Health Consultancy

We are your local Allied Health Practice based in Dapto, NSW, providing you Psychological Services, Counselling, Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy and  Art Therapy.


Ripples has been operating in Dapto since 2017, however some of our practitioners have been practising in the Illawarra for over 15 years. We have a lot of experience working with children, young people and adults who have experienced childhood and other trauma, as well as disabilities and complex presentations. 

We welcome children and young people to be participate in their health journey and the therapeutic team aid this within a collaborative joint process. We also support adults and parents to find a safe space to work through personal trauma and also learn to provide trauma informed parenting.


We offer help to families who are entering the NDIS space who are requiring therapeutic intervention, behaviour support or assessments to start the process.


Our hope is to add to the field further resources, integrating within our community, to service people who have fallen through these gaps, especially people who have experienced significant childhood trauma, which has had an ongoing impact in their adult and family life.
