What I Offer
Occupational Therapy Assessment
“Occupational Therapy (OT) is a science degree-based, health and social care profession, regulated by the Health and Care Professions Council. Occupational Therapy takes a whole-person approach to both mental and physical health and wellbeing and enables individuals to achieve their full potential.” (Royal College of Occupational Therapists).
An Occupational Therapist can work with people of all ages, helping them to carry out the activities that they need or want to do in order to lead an independent and meaningful life. ‘Occupation’ as a term refers to practical and purposeful activities that allow people to live independently and have a sense of identity. Day to day activities include what you do at home, at work, in education or leisure wise.
As an Occupational Therapist I can provide practical support to empower, facilitate recovery and overcome barriers preventing you from conducting the activities and meaningful occupations that matter to you. An Occupational Therapist’s aim is to support and increase individual’s independence and satisfaction in all aspects of their life.
Think about your day-to-day life; would you be able to cope or live fully if you couldn’t use a phone or laptop, or couldn’t get out of bed in the morning?
Occupational Therapists play a critical role in helping people of all ages overcome the effects of disability caused by illness, ageing or trauma so that they can carry out everyday tasks, whether this is temporary or permanent. As an Occupational Therapist I will consider all of your physical, psychological, social and environmental needs.
