Emma Williams

Mental and/or physical ill health can make it difficult or even stop you from doing the things that you enjoy or need to do? I can help you to identify the barriers such as low mood, anxiety, reduced functional use of your arms and/or legs, memory, fatigue, and/or the physical environment by carrying out a comprehensive holistic assessment. I can then work with you to achieve realistic goals which enable you to increase your independence and satisfaction in all aspects of life.

The majority of my 19 years as an Occupational Therapist have been in rehabilitation, in hospital and community settings. I work part-time in an NHS community therapy team plus as an Occupational Therapist in the independent sector. I also have APPI training in pilates and provide pilates at Physiotherapy and Pilates Clinic, in Retford. I have experience working with people aged 18+ years with neurological, cardiac, respiratory and orthopaedic conditions. Examples include: Stroke, Brain Injury, Multiple Sclerosis, Fractures, Hip and Knee Replacements, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, COVID-19, Dementia and Parkinson’s Disease.

Your first Occupational Therapy appointment will involve an initial assessment to gather further information regarding your individual needs. We can then work together to make a plan for further assessments and therapeutic interventions. Assessment and ongoing therapy may include: cognitive/perceptual assessment and rehabilitation, mood screens, functional rehabilitation, exercise programmes, fatigue management, vocational rehabilitation and advice regarding moving and handling plus specialist equipment for example, seating, wheelchairs and beds. I can liaise with your G.P. regarding onward referrals to appropriate services with your consent.
