"You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream." ~ CS Lewis
Occupational Therapy (OT) enables people to live life to its fullest, through facilitating them to engage in those everyday activities that they enjoy.
Joseph’s life journey has led him to Occupational Therapy as his chosen profession. He has a strong desire to facilitate people to achieve and maintain their maximum function, and feels this is best achieved through working with individuals and their families in their own environment. Joseph’s therapy focus is a client-centred holistic approach with consideration of all aspects of an individual’s life and how the person has been affected by their injury or condition.
Joseph uses a systematic approach based on evidence and professional reasoning. Following the in-depth assessment process he establishes and sets mutually agreed upon goals.
What qualities does Joseph bring to his role as Occupational Therapist?
Joseph believes in lifelong learning and the importance of keeping his knowledge and skills current; he participates in ongoing professional development through conference workshops, training courses, seminars and webinars.
