Our private OT’s in Warwickshire

The OT Practice provides private occupational therapy services in and around Warwickshire as well as the rest of the UK. We have expert, private therapists covering every clinical specialism in all areas of Warwickshire, including Coventry, Birmingham, Solihull and Warwick.

Occupational therapists work to break down the barriers which hold back individuals in carrying out their day to day activities. OTs not only look at the physical effects of ageing, injury or disease, but also address the psycho-social, community and environmental factors that influence functional ability.

Our Warwickshire therapists cover all areas of OT, including neurological or functional rehabilitation, seating & postural management, housing & equipment, vocational rehabilitation and paediatrics. For a free initial consultation over the telephone, please call one of our dedicated client managers who will be able to find you the right OT. You can also learn more about some of the private therapists in our Warwickshire team from their profiles above. All are registered with the Health Care Professions Council, have at least five years’ clinical experience, and are members of the appropriate professional bodies.

If you are enquiring about occupational therapy services for children, please visit the OT Practice Kids section of our site to learn more about our dedicated paediatrics team.
