COVID-19 UPDATE: We are now offering sessions online
Join us over on our Cup-O-T Community Facebook group for activities and Facebook Lives that offer strategies and discussions on ways to look after your physical and mental health.
At Cup-O-T: Wellness and Therapy Services we offer Occupational Therapy appointments for adults and young people aged 11 years old and up.
What is Occupational Therapy?
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.
How can Occupational Therapy help me?
Occupational Therapy can help you manage your life and mental wellness in a variety of ways. ‘Occupation’ refers to the things you do day to day. This might be self care activities, work/education or things that you enjoy.
Occupational Therapy works with you to build skills to enable you to complete the activities of daily living that you need or want to do. It also helps you to adapt the activity or environment that you do it in.
What are Occupational Therapy sessions like?
To begin with we will have an initial assessment appointment. In this appointment we will talk about different things that you are good at and enjoy and identify the things that are difficult. We will set goals of what you want to achieve and make a plan of how we will work towards these. It is a chance for you to get to know your Occupational Therapist and ask questions to make sure this is right for you.
If you would like a written report then this can be paid for separately.
Occupational Therapy sessions are very practical and will look at the occupations (meaningful activities) you do day to day. We will work to support you to do these activities independently and to perform them to a level you are satisfied with. We also use new occupations / meaningful activities to build your skills. This might be baking, building lego, doing creative activities, puzzles, or physical exercises – things you are interested in that build your skills in the areas you are having difficulties.
Sessions are normally 50 minutes long and all resources will be provided.
