Clinical Services: 

The aim is to help you live the kind of life you want by targeting the things that are getting in your way:

  • Eg.
  • Depression/ anxiety/ other mental health issues/  or stress
  • Physical pain
  • fatigue
  • Environmental factors
  • The impact of a chronic condition

As well as using standard techniques in psychologically focussed treatment, an occupational therapist considers the impact of problems on your daily activities and life. The therapist works with you to rebuild meaning in your life and achieve your personal goals.
