Occupational Therapists aim to support the recovery of people with all types of psychological and physical health needs, who are experiencing difficulty with everyday tasks such as self-care, employment and leisure. They aim to help people develop a personally satisfying routine of activities that create a sense of purpose and direction to life. They work alongside people to help them to achieve a balanced life-style and become involved in activities that support their mental and physical health and well-being. Occupational Therapists aim to assist people to develop skills to cope with everyday stresses and strains of life, manage their relationships and meet their psychological needs. They run a varied programme of group activities for service users in community and in-patient settings. They also take on case-loads of individual service users. Occupational Therapists have a professional training and are registered, and regulated by, the Health Care Professions Council in the UK.
