About Wildflower Kids Therapy

Mikaela Winter
Peadiatric Occupational Therapist 

Hi there, I'm Mikaela, and I am the proud owner of Wildflower Kids Therapy.

It was always my dream to open my own practice, and with almost a decade of experience working as an Occupational Therapist (and a lot of time working out how my own brain works!), I decided to dedicate all my learning and effort to a service that fosters pride and confidence in children. 

2021 was a special year. My identity grew, and I became a Mum to a little boy named Taron. His huge personality and sensitive soul challenge me to grow every day, and I'm grateful for all the lessons in compassion, patience, and trust. These lessons and passion are what led me to create Wildflower Kids Therapy.

I can describe a lot of my practice values through two quotes:

"Kids don't learn from people they don't like." - Rita Pierson

"Children learn more from what you are then what you teach." - W.E.B. Dubois

By being authentic, honest, curious, and giving children space and time, a truly magical space opens up where I have the power to influence a child's learning and development through friendship and positive role modelling.

My goal isn't to teach your children how to have the perfect pencil grip; it's to help them see value in written expression and be intrinsically motivated to practice.

My goal isn't to teach your children to make eye contact and do "good listening"; it's to show them the value in human connection and friendships. 

Working with neurodivergent children is something truly magical. I find it incredibly rewarding to help children be their best, most authentic selves and to witness them achieve, learn and grow with a glimmer in their eyes.

Paige Robinson
Occupational Therapist 

Hi, I’m Paige and I’m an Occupational Therapist at Wildflower Kids Therapy!

 

Growing up I have always had a passion for helping people in any way that I can. When I discovered Occupational Therapy in my final year of schooling, I knew that this was the career for me, and commenced my studies as soon as I could! 


I completed my Bachelor of Occupational Therapy at Southern Cross University on the Gold Coast. I found my passion when working with children and adolescents during my placement experience and using play as therapy!

 

I enjoy tailoring therapy to the child’s interest, support needs, and their meaningful goals.  

 

As a neurodivergent person myself, who has lived experience with ADHD and Sensory Processing Disorder, I see the value in the neurodiversity-affirming approach. I can see the power in embracing who you are and your strengths – and how positively this influences your mental wellbeing and quality of life.


During my free time, I enjoy playing piano, seeing my friends, and going for waterfall hikes!
