Meet the Canberra Allied Health Team

Our team of experienced, passionate and energetic health care professionals work together as a multidisciplinary team to provide the best support and education for our clients to achieve their treatment goals. We pride ourselves on really listening, and aim to work with you on tailoring an individualised treatment plan that not only suits you, but gets results.

Canberra Allied Health has assembled a team of allied health professionals who specialise in different areas of health care. From weight management, behaviour change and bariatric surgery, to musculoskeletal rehabilitation and neurological conditions, to women’s health, pilates and hydrotherapy, we have a diverse range of interests and areas of speciality in order to help as many people in the community as possible. These differing interests also complement each other well and it is common to see a number of different practitioners in the clinic to support you on your health journey.

We offer support outside of your allocated appointment, with a range of group classes each week, regular patient blogs and fun social media content.

Together with our dedicated Client Experience Officers, you can be assured of reliable, professional and friendly support with zero judgement.
