October is recognised as Mental Health Month.
Do you, or someone you know, struggle with your mental health?
If so, you aren't alone.
We don't need to dwell on how the last three years have impacted the mental health of our nation (the world population even). However we can help to shed some light on how our work can make a positive difference.
What is our experience?
We work with a range of clients of all ages, and their mental health can sometimes be affected by their circumstances.
Some of our clients are recovering from illness or an accident and their physical abilities are often significantly impacted. This can obviously have a detrimental effect on their sense of wellbeing. We see this as a pivotal part of our role; to evoke a feeling of positivity and hope in the Physiotherapy work that we do.
What can we do to support?
We use our decades of experience and skills to tailor our treatment to each client dependent on factors such as condition, age, ability and personality.
Some of our clients react best when faced with a challenge that we encourage them to achieve. Other clients are looking for consistent support and gentle encouragement to give them the confidence to try new tasks that will help them reach a goal close to their heart.
What can we do to make a difference?
We're extremely proud of the new range of activities and visits that we are currently organising with clients and their families.
We have a passion to bring activities and experiences to our clients and their support team (in the form of their friends and family), so that everyone can experience the excitement and fulfilment of a new activity, regardless of ability.
If you know of someone who may benefit from one of our planned activities such horse riding, trampolining, or swimming, do get in touch with us. We plan small-group activities and it would be wonderful to invite you or your loved one to join us.
