Meet our Practice Principal

Conor Hickey
Practice Principal

Conor is an Occupational Therapist and joined Early Start Australia in 2021. Originally from Ireland, Conor moved to the UK in 2010 where he completed a Bachelor of Science in Health and Exercise, and Sport Studies, and went on to work as an Occupational Therapy Assistant.

Conor completed a Master’s degree in Occupational Therapy and as part of his thesis, he conducted an in-depth analysis of interactive video games as a therapeutic tool for Global Developmental Delay. Conor continued his work in London where he took on his first lead Occupational Therapist role and supported accommodation units for a charity organisation.

Conor moved to Australia in 2019 and during his time here has worked for non-government organisations and not-for profit organisations. Since arriving in Australia, he has also received accreditation as a Behavioural Support Practitioner.

Conor has a strong background in mental health and developmental conditions, and a passion for providing personalised and high-quality therapy and support to families. He utilises a family centred approach and believes family should be involved in every step of the journey where possible.

Outside work, Conor leads an active lifestyle and spends his weekends playing golf, soccer and spending time at the beach. He also plays on a hurling team, enjoys watching sport and likes to spend time with his friends visiting new places in Sydney.
