About Kadia

Connecting The Power Of OT with Occupational Therapists

Our Story

The Kadia Occupational Therapy focus on helping you create future where you can do what matters to you. 

As Occupational Therapists, we work with you to create ‘bridges’ between where you are at right now, and what you want to do in life – irrespective of the physical, environmental or social barriers you might face. 

Whether it be creating more autonomy in your life (doing what you want, when you want) or doing a specific task which currently is out of your reach (or costing too much energy). Being able to be who you want to be, and express and connect with the world the way you want to… that is what Occupational Therapy is about. 

BUT…at Kadia we go beyond the basic…

With more than half of our team journeying with people in their personal lives who are living with the challenge of being seen for their disability -rather than their ability…

Our team really get what it means to dream of a better life. 

We are determined to hold onto the hope which can be hard for you to see in the darkness… 

and 

We are tenacious when it comes to fighting with you to achieve them…

no matter how many steps it may take to get there. 

 

We are out of the box solution thinkers…

We are Horizon lifters …

We are Map Writers …

We are Boundary Pushers…

 

We say “no” to conveyer-belt type therapies 

and

Say “Yes” to custom designed, boutique plans, designed around you. 

And we get that our role as OT’s we are a resource for you.

We get that we are not the experts in your life…

After all who knows you better than you?!

But…

We know we can guide, create and carry your story to your next “life destination”.

and that is how we, together with you…

Create Your New Tomorrow

Our Story

Kadia Therapy is the Passion Project of Janelle Arnold. 

Before she was an Occupational Therapist, Janelle had the privilege of being the sibling of Laura, who lived with a disability.

Through growing up in the disability world, and having close ‘older adult’ friends, Janelle understood the real challenges that families and individuals experienced when dealing with Allied Health and Medical Professionals. 

Whilst this experience drove Janelle to the world of Occupational Therapy, where she fell in love with the power and impact that OT can have on the lives of those with different challenges, she continued to see the very same challenges in the traditional Allied Health space that she grew up hearing about…

However, in her own work, more and more people from across Victoria, sought to connect with Janelle to help them where they had not been able to find solutions in other spaces. From this space, a word of mouth therapy service – Reclaim Therapy, was born. 

Through Reclaim Therapy, Janelle was able to prove that Occupational Therapy has so much more to offer than is traditionally provided. And so, with the collaboration of a Passionate Leadership team who all have personal experience journeying with loved ones living with limitations, Kadia Occupational Therapy was formed.  

Kadia is a boutique Occupational Therapy Service, designed for those we serve, run by a Leadership team who all have walked the journey of life with loved ones who live with disabilities.  and a team who, in everything they do, seek to impact the lives of the clients they serve.

In under a year, Kadia Therapy Group has achieved significant success both in and outside the clinical space, with most recently receiving recognition for team culture excellence as a finalist in the Australian Allied Health Awards 2021.
