What is Occupational Therapy?

An Occupational Therapist provides support to children, young people and adults whose health or disability makes it hard for them to do the things they would like to do. Occcupational Therapists can identify strengths and difficulties, help with solutions and support individuals to participate in activities.

What does Occupational Therapy at Hessel Group look like?

Our Occupational Therapists are based in SA, striving to assist individuals to live independently and have meaningful lives. The first step when starting therapy is to gather information about your needs and complete an individual assessment. This will assist in developing a personalised therapy plan that best meets your needs and works towards your goals.
