About Jess Cauchi

My approach to care: I believe that our hands are the way that we all engage in our world, so it is important to be well supported in the rehabilitation of them when they’re injured. I pride myself on the ability to support my clients returning to their optimal hand function post an injury.


I established my passion for Hand Therapy in university and have continued to concentrate on upper limb rehabilitation as both a general Occupational Therapist and now as a Practitioner in Hand Therapy.


Outside of work, I enjoy being with family and friends, being active outside with my adorable dogs and cooking.
