More than a place to work.
A place to grow and belong.


It All Began in 2014

Lifeworks OT has been making a difference in our clients’ lives for 8 wonderful years. We started small with just one OT, offering mental health and pain management services where we saw a need in the community. Today, we’re proud to be a leading private practice dedicated to mental health and pain management, and most importantly, taking care of our therapists.

We believe in matching each therapist’s skills and interests with a caseload that’s not only inspiring, but also rewarding. This leads to high levels of satisfaction and growth, both professionally and personally. Our goal is to help people with mental health and persistent pain conditions, and other complex disabilities, live their best life possible. Our OTs specialise in mental health, persistent pain/fatigue, functional neurological disorders, and connective tissue disorders, and we’re always striving to improve our skills in these areas.

Our values of respect, integrity, and collaboration drive us to provide a quality service to our clients, with individualised care at the forefront. If this sounds like a mission you’d like to be a part of, you might be just the right fit for us.

Our vision is to be an industry leader in providing quality occupational therapy services in our niche areas of practice, accessible to all in Australia. If you’re eager to help us achieve this goal, we’d love for you to keep reading.


Where Compassion Meets Expertise

Lifeworks Occupational Therapy is on the lookout for kind and compassionate Occupational Therapists to join our team, either as a full-time employee or a part-time independent contractor. We are a mental health and pain management private practice that is dedicated to making a positive impact in our clients’ lives, and we believe that starts with taking care of our therapists.

We’re all about supporting our team members and helping them reach their full potential. That’s why we’ve created a supportive and empowering Career Progression Pathway, allowing you to grow as a clinician, try out different roles, and even step into leadership positions if that’s your goal. We’re here to cheer you on every step of the way and help you achieve success in your career in the exciting field of occupational therapy!

We also understand that working in mental health can be challenging, which is why we have put in place a burnout prevention program to ensure that our therapists have a manageable workload and the support they need to thrive. Whether you’re a new graduate or an experienced therapist, we have opportunities for you to grow and develop, both professionally and personally.

You will have the opportunity to actively progress your career within the industry and field.

About Us

Lifeworks Occupational Therapy is a well-established business, now in its 8th year. We began with one OT, offering private occupational therapy services in the areas of mental health and persistent pain, as we could see a significant gap in the services available in the community. As we have grown, we have considered each individual occupational therapist’s skill set and areas of interest, and worked to build them a caseload that is interesting, inspiring and rewarding, leading to high levels of professional satisfaction, and personal and professional growth and development.

We believe that everyone deserves to live a good life. Lifeworks Occupational Therapy exists to enable people with mental health and persistent pain conditions and other complex disabilities to move forward with confidence, and overcome barriers, so they can live their best possible life. The OTs at Lifeworks OT work with people across the lifespan, predominantly in the niche areas of mental health, persistent pain/fatigue, functional neurological disorders and connective tissue disorders. We work to develop high level skills in these specific areas of practice. We also provide external clinical supervision and training to other occupational therapists practicing in these areas. We value respect and integrity and provide a quality service to our clients, built on the firm foundations of collaboration, innovation and individualised care. If this sounds good to you, you would be a great fit.

Lifeworks OT’s goal is to enable people to participate in the areas of life that are important to them, and achieve an optimal quality of life, through occupational therapy. Ultimately, our vision is to be an industry leader in the provision and promotion of quality occupational therapy services in our niche area of practice, accessible to all people living in Australia. If you want to play a part in achieving this, then we encourage you to read on.

Our Head Office is located in the leafy suburb of Mount Lawley that is centrally located in beautiful Perth WA. We have additional locations in Joondalup in the North, Bibra Lake in the South, and Midland in the East. Our locations offer easy access for staff and clients, and all have free parking available and easy public transport access. You can have the option to work from whichever clinic location is closest to home for you, and/or, to work from home (home visiting/telehealth only). A large proportion of our work is done in the client’s home, enabling us to get out of the office and enjoy immersing ourselves in the community. Some of our clients come from further afar in Western Australia and even interstate, so we also offer services via telehealth. These numerous methods of service delivery make for an interesting and varied day.
