Amelia Greenway

Who is Amelia and How Much Experience Does She Have?

Amelia is a playful therapist who supports kids to overcome their challenges through a combination of play-based, guided discovery and direct skill development. She has been working with kids with a range of challenges including emotional regulation, handwriting, play development, life skills and building confidence and self-esteem.

She is passionate about supporting families, so they are better equipped to access, participate and engage in the occupations (activities) that are meaningful to them. She takes the time to know the child individually, and the family as a collective.

What happens if you don’t like your therapist (or they don’t feel best equipped to help you)?

Sometimes, despite our best efforts you or the therapist may find that you are not a good fit. If your therapist feels that he or she is not best suited to you, he/ she will discuss this with you and recommend a more appropriate therapist. We will then offer you a discounted first session with a new more appropriate therapist at Kids Matters.

If you feel that your therapist is not a good fit within the first three sessions, simply discuss this with our admin team who will find a more suitable therapist. We will then offer you 50% off your first consultation with the new therapist.
