Occupational Therapy

What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational therapy takes a “whole-person approach” to mental and physical health and wellbeing and enables individuals to achieve their full potential.

Occupational therapy provides practical support to empower people to facilitate recovery and overcome barriers preventing them from doing the activities (or occupations) that matter to them. This support increases people's independence and satisfaction in all aspects of life.
