Welcome to The Allied Health Practice. We are a newly established private company offering specialist occupational therapy services in mental health and learning difficulties.

Please use the links below and to the right to find out more about the services we offer.

Occupational Therapy Services: Catering to the needs of all ages, we provide a caring and respectful service delivered by qualified, experienced professionals. No problem is too small or too complex – we aim to work with you to help improve your day to day functioning at home, work and school.

We carry out assessments, treatment and rehabilitation activities with individuals, families and groups. Working with you, we set meaningful and realistic goals to help develop or re-establish skills, abilities and coping strategies and find meaning, enjoyment and satisfaction in your everyday life. We have experience of working with people with anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, bipolar affective disorder, eating disorders and a range of other conditions.

We also specialise in autism spectrum, dyspraxia and attention-deficit conditions. We offer non-medical treatments for sensory processing, emotional regulation, working memory, organisational, motor and social skills. We help build self-confidence and self-esteem.

Our work-focused occupational therapy supports individuals, employers and insurers through vocational rehabilitation and return to work programmes. Our education-focused occupational therapy for schools and colleges aims to help maximise learning, achievement and success at school and beyond.

Management Consultancy: we use our expertise to help mental health services be the best they can be too. Whether it be service or pathway review, evaluation or re-design, QIPP or CQUIN programme development, bid writing, policy implementation or project management, we have extensive experience of working with providers and commissioners to achieve their strategic vision for mental health.

Learning and Development Activities: we organise and deliver training sessions and educational workshops for parents, schools, healthcare organisations, charities and companies. We also provide clinical and research supervision and CPD and career development planning for occupational therapists looking to branch out and reach their own potential.
