About us

Everyday Living Therapy was set up in 2011 to provide neuro specialist occupational therapy, that is: high quality, professional, goal focused and value for money. We achieve this by keeping our company small and remaining focused on our clients needs, in order to deliver the most effective and comprehensive therapy package to meet each individual clients needs.

We cover the South Coast of England, referral requests outside of this catchment will be considered on a case by case basis.

At Everyday Living Therapy we understand that our clients may require more than cognitive and vocational rehabilitation. As such our therapists skills have the capability to extend beyond this scope of practice into areas such as:

  • Adaptation and equipment advice
  • Treatment of other health conditions that impact on your everyday function and independence.
