Ashley Bennett – Occupational Therapist

Ashley Bennett – Occupational Therapist


Ashley is a unique OT whose professional work is complemented by her personal role as the busy mum of teenagers.

A multi-talented woman who is not only a qualified occupational therapist, but also an experienced nurse, Ashley has also spent 8 years as the owner and operator of a successful Gymbaroo centre where she delivered play-based, sensory-motor programs to children aged 8 weeks to 5 years.

Ashley is well-known in the northern beaches for the positive, caring and compassionate way in which she supports children and their families. Among her many talents is her innate ability to identify the areas in which children are struggling and to devise practical therapy programs that provide solutions to their problems.

Ashley is especially committed to helping children so that their preschool, primary and high school experiences are more rewarding and successful. Over many years, she has enjoyed opportunities to work with families, school, preschools and other organisations. As a result, she builds excellent working relationships with parents, teachers and other professionals so that children’s needs can be met at home, in the classroom and in the community.

Families who work with Ashley at Kids First soon discover that she is a dedicated, innovative and enthusiastic therapist who cares deeply for the children who come to her for therapy.
