|“Occupational therapy was a real eye opener to me. My only other experience of it was people at work who had a bad back! But in reality it was a really proactive, practical process. It's not just counselling, but a way of changing how you think. Between sessions it was clear that Kate would take time to think about her clients and plan further sessions based on needs. Everything was personalised and it never felt like a generic session. The homework activities make you constantly think and reflect rather than it just being something you do once a week in the sessions. For me the biggest impact was in terms of sleep. Kate was able to support me to develop much better sleep hygiene and this had a profound impact on how I felt during the day.
Because it's such a practical process, the strategies you use stay with after your sessions finish and it really empowers you to make lasting change.”
