Ebby Sigmund, Independent Occupational Therapist

I have over 25 years experience as an occupational therapist working both in the NHS and the private sector.

I work with adults and have particular expertise in working with older people. I have worked in hospitals, rehabilitation settings, a hand therapy clinic and in clients' own homes. This has given me a broad range of knowledge and experience to draw on for each individual and family I work with.

I offer a personal approach to help clients with difficulties arising from illness, accident or simply the challenges of growing older. Some of the things I can help with include: - Recommending equipment or minor adaptations to make everyday tasks easier. - Personalised rehabilitation programmes to help regain or improve independence and confidence, perhaps when recovering after a spell in hospital. - "Future proofing" your home to make it easier to manage in later years. - Finding ways to keep doing the things you value in your daily life, from basic tasks like getting dressed to things you enjoy such as your hobbies, interests or holidays. - Learning to cope with the effects of a long term illness, for example fatigue management programmes. - Hand therapy programmes to fit your needs.

Our daily routines and activities are very important for our health and well-being. Feeling in control of our own life and able to manage as much as possible of what we need or choose to do helps us all get the most from everyday and can improve quality of life. This is what I aim to help each person I work with to achieve.

I am based in South West Scotland, but can travel by arrangement. I am Bupa affiliated details at I will be happy to discuss your needs over the phone in a free informal consultation.
