Louise King

Occupational Therapist

Loves spending time with her wonderful family and two awesome dogs Molly and Archie

Lou has a passion for working with tamariki and their whānau to understand big emotions and navigate activities of daily life. She uses play and creative therapies to engage in learning skills that support children to make sense of their big emotions, sensations, and teach them new coping skills along the way. Lou knows that communication at all levels is important and understands the value of working as a team and supporting families to getting the best out of the young person. Every child brings mōhiotanga/knowledge with them and every therapy plan needs to reflect this in order for tamariki to thrive at home, school, and in the community.
