Occupational Therapy

Philosophy and Belief

We believe that individuals’ well-being is closely tied to their ability to engage in meaningful activities and participate fully in their daily lives. As occupational therapists, we understand the importance of empowering individuals to achieve their maximum potential.

Our Approach

Applying evidence-based practices, we collaborate with clients to assess their unique needs, capabilities, and goals. We emphasise the significance of enabling individuals to lead independent and fulfilling lives.

  • Occupational Assessments: Conducting comprehensive assessments to understand clients’ specific functional needs.

Depending on the needs of the patient, occupational therapy can be offered individually, in groups, or systemically (e.g., to family members). Depending on the injury, the skills, and the goals of each client, occupational therapy interventions can aim to:

  • Develop or maintain the client’s basic skills, necessary for performing daily life activities.
  • Skills: Motor, Social interaction, Processing (Cognitive-perceptual)
  • Training of new techniques and strategies for the patient, for successful execution of daily life activities/change in the way of performing activities.

What are "occupations"?

Occupations are any activities that people do in their daily lives, which give meaning and purpose to their lives, and which people want, need, or have to do (WFOT, 2012). Examples of occupations are:

  • Self-care activities (eating, dressing, sleeping, moving, mobility, personal hygiene e.g. toileting, washing body and teeth)

  • Leisure activities (recreation, entertainment, amusement, social interaction, play, hobbies, relaxation, participation in groups) (CAOT, 2022) Each occupation is an integral part of our lives that describes who we are and how we feel about ourselves. Occupations essentially define the meaning, purpose, and roles in our lives (e.g., roles of mother, worker, friend, etc.) (WFOT 2012; AOTA, 2022).
