How can Allied Health help you?
With its basis in scientific research, allied health aims to better understand how our minds process information and learn, interpret events, and make decisions or determine courses of action. Our highly skilled allied health professionals then take this information and create a therapy plan based on tried and tested techniques to assist people to live their best life. At DFS, allied health services form the basis of our holistic, mind, brain, and body approach to therapy and care.
Whether your concerns are with addictions, ADHD & ADD, anger management, anxiety, autism & Asperger’s, depression, PMS, PTSD and trauma, stress, or OCD, our allied health professionals will understand your individual concerns and work with you to overcome your mental health challenges.
Our allied health professionals work with other professionals in our multidisciplinary practice to best manage your care.
Programs at DFS
Direct Focus Solutions is committed to developing individualised programs for our clients. However, sometimes, we find that a program which includes other clients who are working towards the same goal is the best program for an individual. That’s why we are excited to offer our range of educational programs that cover a range of valuable topics including diet and nutrition, mindfulness, goal setting, thinking styles, sleep principles, learning to be assertive, the value of exercise, managing grief and loss, enhancing performance, social skills, and stability and coordination.

Join the Team
At Direct Focus Solutions, our high-quality therapies and welcoming environments all come down to our dedicated staff. We attract an extensive range of highly qualified practitioners, including experts in psychology, speech therapy and occupational therapy. Each of our clinicians are professionally trained and accredited with their registering bodies. They are committed to continual self-improvement by following best practices and maintaining professional standards of excellence. That’s why they are all among the best in their fields.
We also currently employ neurofeedback technicians, counsellors, registered nurses, and disability and community support workers.
At Direct Focus Solutions, we are continually supportive of our team’s interests, passions, and professional development, and strive to turn our specialists’ passions into real outreach programs that engage and support our communities.
Real clients, real lives, real concerns: at DFS, our Intern Placement Program offers graduates the opportunity to learn alongside highly trained professionals in a multidisciplinary clinic. The quality of experience such a program offers cannot be mirrored in a university setting, neither can it be matched in a program that offers only a single-discipline approach. We are proud to play our part in training the next generation of experts who will be responsible for the care of our clients
