Clinical Services Expand in Brisbane

Today Breakthru is excited to announce that our clinical services are now expanding in Brisbane, with the introduction of both Speech Therapy and Counselling to our growing portfolio of Allied Health services. With the introduction of these services to our Fortitude Valley office, Breakthru now has capacity to support customers immediately, with no current waitlist. Whether you are looking to improve your speech, punctuation, and swallowing, or you’re looking for a counsellor to help achieve your mental health goals, our collaborative and warm clinicians are always here to lend a helping hand.

Meet the newest additions to our wonderful Brisbane team below!
