Occupational Therapy

Expert Occupational Therapist

Occupational Therapy is a rehabilitation field, which focuses on enabling engagement in everyday life and ones chosen activities through the use of occupation to foster health and well being. Our goal is to maximize one's quality of life and independence and achieve ones chosen goals. Occupation refers to everything that people need to or want to do throughout the course of the day: this could, for example, be attending to their personal hygiene, going to school, completing housework, attending a volunteer position, participating in a leisure activity or going to work.

Occupational Therapy Approach

Occupational Therapists use a systemic approach to therapy based on evidence and professional reasoning to enable clients to engage in occupations of their choice.

The process involves collaboration, assessing, planning, implementing, monitoring and evaluating progress in relation to the goals set by the client. The aim is to make immediate and long-term differences to one's everyday life and abilities.

Occupational therapists apply their specialized knowledge and skills to recommend a course of preventive or corrective action that will help people lead more productive and satisfying lives. They are trained to understand not only the medical and physical limitations of a disability or injury but also the psychosocial factors that affect the functioning of the whole person – their health and their wellness.
