Alethea Sifis, ActivOT Preston, was born and raised in Adelaide. She completed her Bachelor of Applied Science in Occupational Therapy (OT) at the University of South Australia in 2001.
Alethea has over 18 years of occupational therapy experience working across multiple practice areas including:
- occupational rehabilitation
- injury management and prevention
- community aged care
- short term rehabilitation within acute and subacute hospital settings, private practice, and community health.
In recent years, Alethea was involved in developing the new Pain Rehabilitation Clinic at Modbury Hospital as the Senior Occupational Therapist.
Since then, Alethea has relocated to Melbourne for a change of pace and has expanded her case management and residential rehabilitation skills in a new city.
In 2020, Alethea found herself missing her clinical occupational therapy practice, and joined ActivOT as our first occupational therapy franchise in Melbourne.
Alethea has extensive experience in adult rehabilitation, complex client management, and service coordination; including home modifications, and equipment provision.
A confident and experienced communicator, Alethea Sifis is a strong client advocate, with a proven track history of cultivating relationships and removing obstacles to build trust and provide creative problem solving to help her clients achieve their goals.
A self-motivated, results-orientated occupational therapist, Alethea supports consumer directed care. She is dedicated to empowering her clients to make informed decisions to optimise their health, wellbeing, and independence, in order to achieve their goals and improve their quality of life. Alethea takes a “nothing about me without me” approach to client care and works collaboratively with her clients every step of the way, to assist them to remain living independently in their own home for as long as possible.
Outside of work, Alethea enjoys time with her friends and the arts and live music scene that Melbourne has to offer. She is passionate about baking, gardening, and everything outdoors; and enjoys hiking, running, yoga, and she is never far away from the nearest beach.
