People generally come into contact with an OT when their ability to engage in everyday activities is disrupted through ill health or disability.
Occupational Therapists understand that ‘doing’ is transormative; it is through everyday activities we all grow and change throughout our lives, develop meaning and purpose, a sense of identity and belonging in our communities.
As a profession, we pride ourselves in being person-centred and understand that everyone has an inner drive to engage in activities that are uniquely meaniful to them. We think about the whole person and how they interact with their environment to engage with the world.
Practicing Occupational Therapists are allied health professionals and are registered with the Health and Social Care Professionals Council (HCPC)
