Melissa Hancock's profile

Melissa Hancock BAppSc (Occupational Therapy)

Intrepid Occupational Therapy Ltd

I have worked as an OT in the NHS, private and military sectors for over 16 years. I am an experienced therapist offering comprehensive assessments and individual treatment programmes to adults experiencing neurological injuries and illness (brain injury, stroke, MS, brain tumours etc.). In addition to this, I have specialist skills in providing cognitive assessment and treatment, managing challenging behaviour, awareness and insight difficulties, complex posture and seating assessment, pain management, sleep assessment and intervention, vocational rehabilitation, fatigue management and providing rehabilitation to patients with medically unexplained / functional presentations. I enjoy working collaboratively with patients, their families and other therapists to achieve the best rehabilitation outcome.
