Occupational Therapy Team's expertise:
OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY TEAM’S EXPERTISE
Skilled Occupational Therapists at this practice, have extensive experience in psychiatry and assist patients to understand the impact their condition might have on different areas of their lives.
Dedicated assessments are done and during individual and group sessions, patients are equipped with coping skills for everyday life and receive guidance to finding their resilience in the adversities they may face because of mental illness. The goal is not just to achieve wellness but to maintain it after having left the clinic.
Special focus areas:
- Practical and interactive therapeutic groups.
- One-on-one therapy is based on the specific needs of the individual.
- Work-orientated evaluation and rehabilitation.
- Sensory profiling is to understand how individuals perceive their environment and how to effectively manage it.
Therapists guide and empower people to be their best, authentic selves and to live a purposeful life after discharge. We embrace the uniqueness of each person and their journey.
