After an initial assessment of your situation we work out a plan of action together. I work in a holistic and client-centred way so you are always in the driving seat and I will help navigate. As an OT I like to employ a variety of techniques and skills depending on your particular needs and preferences. We will cover practical techniques such as relaxation, breathing exercises, Mindfulness approaches, pacing and grading activity if this is appropriate for you. Managing pain associated with fatigue and sleep problems. Psychological approaches to cope with energy draining, negative, self-critical thoughts and over busy minds, which can have an effect on your mental health and self-esteem as well as your energy.
The holistic approach means being aware of the mind and body connection and their effect on each other. I can also help you find ways to understand and develop your spiritual health if you wish. Spiritual Health is not religion unless you wish it to be. It is more about a helpful connection which takes us out of ourselves, such as when walking in nature or carrying out a sport or creative hobby Evidence shows that this helps our sense of wellbeing.
