Mara Sheldon's profile

Mara Sheldon BSc (hons) Occupational Therapy

Positive Energy Partnership Ltd

I have a wide range of experience working with adults of all ages to support physical and emotional wellbeing, including social and other impacts of illness or life changes. For example: • Fatigue or low energy • Worries or anxiety • Fears, phobias or panic • Breathlessness • Pain • Life changes • Living with or recovering from illness or treatments.

Most recently I am working more often with people recovering from Long Covid.

I use a combination of practical and functional interventions to help improve quality of life physically and emotionally. I also offer simple and quick interventions which can remove certain situational anxieties and phobias, for example, worry about certain situations (such as exams, presentations or operations) or fears and phobias (such as fear of needles).

1:1 sessions available face to face or via Zoom.

For health professionals interested to learn more about techniques and interventions, I offer a variety of training opportunities and workshops. I also offer supervision for occupational therapists.
