WHO WE WORK WITH
The unique blend of professional knowledge from our HCPC Registered Occupational Therapist coupled with first hand experience makes us experts in assisting case management clients to improve their daily living and achieve their ambitions. We understand that you may want to access our services fast, which is why we aim to arrange a ‘Meet and Greet’ within one week of your initial enquiry. For each of our clients, we follow our ‘Life Tree’ approach outlined below, however, if you have any specific questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us – email@example.com.
We are proud to be a Corporate Associate of BABICM and an Associate of the Association of Coaching.
We begin by conducting a thorough initial consultation, giving us the opportunity to get to know your client’s background and what matters most i.e. aspirations. This provides us with a solid foundation on which we can work with your client to, for example, set SMART goals enabling them to maximise your potential. During the consultation, you or your client are in control as to how much information is shared with us and we will always be transparent in who we share your information with i.e. other therapists or professionals.
We also understand that your client may lead a busy life whether it be school, work or attending appointments, thus we are happy to base our services upon an existing assessment conducted by a relevant professional and/or a service user plan. This will then be sent to you or your client to approve.
After identifying your clients goals during the consultation, we will mutually agree whether sessions will be on a rolling basis, whether that be weekly, fortnightly etc or predetermined beforehand. Your client is in control of the amount of input we have and can terminate the sessions at anytime if they no longer feel the benefit of our services, we simply require two weeks notice.
During the initial consultation or when we are working with you or your client to set SMART goals, we will also discuss whether these are short term (six weeks) or long term (six months). At these intervals (or during our client sessions), we will meet with you or your client to collaboratively write a progress report, outlining the steps that have been taken towards achieving ones SMART goals which then can then be shared with the appropriate therapists and professionals (subject to approval).
We are also happy to work alongside or within a MDT enabling us to share and receive information, allowing us to provide your client a ‘holistic’ approach.
HOW WE WORK
After conducting an initial needs assessment, it was identified by RJ and the OT that one of his goals was to improve his health and wellbeing. Using Nath’s prior knowledge of Adaptive Yoga, he was able to contact a local Yoga teacher offering this service and arrange a taster session. As a result of RJ’s complex needs, we worked alongside his Multi Disciplinary Team (comprising of a Physiotherapist) and himself to seek out products such as wedges enabling him to feel the full benefit of the session. After the session, he felt positive and relaxed and plans to do weekly sessions in the near future.
