Melanie Bewers BA Business Administration: University of Huddersfield, BSc Occupational Therapy: Brunel University, MSc Public Health: Kings College, London, Prince2 Project Management: London.

Restorative Therapy Solutions

I am a highly skilled Occupational Therapist with over 20 years’ experience. I specialise in physical rehabilitation of adults 18+ who have health conditions affecting their daily functioning including complex multi orthopaedic trauma, neurological conditions including dementia, amputation and life limiting conditions.

My roles have encompassed applying specialist rehabilitation skills to assess and implement interventions using a person-centred approach to improve a person's functioning and quality of life. I have developed clinical expertise in: rehabilitation/re-ablement, case management, moving and handling, seating and vocational rehabilitation. I also provide advice regarding environmental adaptations within the home and recommendations for assistive equipment to promote independence and safety. I offer client-centred assessments with comprehensive functional needs reports which include detailed recommendations to support increased independence.

I am highly competent in implementing a variety of treatment techniques, including pain management, cognitive skills training, fatigue management or energy conservation techniques, stress management, sleep hygiene and education strategies. I am skilled in promoting physical and mental health and well-being. Referrals are accepted from a variety of sources including the individual, families, charities, private companies, case management or rehabilitation providers, insurers and solicitors in the appropriate environment, e.g. home, workplace and/or the community. I am able to provide a one-off assessment or ongoing, client-centred and goal focused rehabilitation. Please phone or email me, I look forward to hearing from you.
