Potential OT is an independent practice providing Occupational Therapy to the people of Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and the North.
What is OT?
"Occupation" refers to the purposeful and meaningful activities which give individuals a sense of identity. Occupational Therapists provide practical advice and therapeutic interventions to overcome barriers and aid recovery.
Occupational therapists work with adults and children of all ages with a wide range of conditions; most commonly those who have difficulties due to a mental health illness, physical or learning disabilities.
An occupational therapist will consider all your needs - physical, psychological, social and environmental. This support can make a real difference to your life, giving you a renewed sense of purpose, opening up new horizons, and changing the way you feel about the future.
Occupational therapists are skilled professionals who find solutions to everyday problems.
Our skilled team works tirelessly to rebuild independence, promote wellbeing and give clients the ability to live life their way.
We have been providing occupational therapy assessments and treatments to the medico-legal sector since 2015.
Whether you require an in-depth sensory integration assessment or practical advice we have the expert knowledge to help.
