"I am practical and creative, and always take a collaborative, individualised, problem-solving approach."
Alison Young BSc (Hons) RCOT HCPC
Alison qualified as an occupational therapist at Sheffield Hallam University. Like all OTs, she is qualified in treating people with both physical and mental health conditions.
Alison has several years’ experience of working in a variety of settings, with adults of all ages. She has worked in the physical and mental health teams in Derbyshire, including the local community and hospital wards.
Alison treats people experiencing difficulty completing their daily activities, including those with long-term and progressive conditions of both mental and physical health. She is practical and creative, always with a collaborative, individualised, problem-solving approach.
Occupational therapy uses meaningful activity to assess, set goals and then to support people to reengage in activities important to them and regain confidence, independence and satisfaction. It can be a stand-alone assessment and treatment, or following or alongside physiotherapy.
Alison is available for initial discussions, to explain more about an occupational approach.
