Client Services Team

Our Client Services Team conducts a whole range of activities to allow our therapists to focus on providing quality outcomes for you. Our Client Services Team will help you with making bookings and cancellations, payments and funding, navigating the NDIS and of course all the paperwork that comes with being a health care provider. Our team is compassionate and cheerful. They will always offer you a cup of tea, coffee or water as you walk through the door and do what they can to make your therapy experience as enjoyable as possible.

Rishi is Eat Speak Learns journeyman. Although a man of few words, he loves to tell us that the journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. Rishi’s journey began in Bangladesh many years ago. He moved to Australia when he was four where he completed year 12 and an IT certificate before starting with Eat Speak Learn. Rishi does all our odd jobs and we love the way he goes quietly about his business. He is the most respectful young man you will come across.
