It's so great to have you here and as you are, let me tell you a little bit about My Therapy Services and the motivation behind why I do what I do.
What's in a name?
Firstly, what's in a name? Well, I kept this really simple. MY are my initials, hence the My Therapy Services. However, that’s not the only reason. I’ve put a spin on the word ‘My’ as I encourage all of my clients to embrace the ‘My’ in their lives and their therapy, so they can call the therapy that they receive ‘My Therapy’. It’s personal to me and for each person and family, I work with. And so by fostering the idea of “my therapy’ from the beginning, this common ground of what seems a little playful is actually quite powerful. This enables trust right from the start and therefore the very best outcome possible.
"Every child deserves the right to play, socialise and be given the tools needed to develop key skills.
This will enable them to go on to achieve something truly remarkable."
Hi, I'm Manisha.
With 18 years working as an Occupational Therapist within the NHS, I have experience working in so many settings including hospitals, schools, care homes, and personally within people’s homes.
My approach is to look for and make the right connections between a child’s physical and emotional state within their social and personal environment, which may be preventing them from having independence, freedom, and joy. This is all carried out through thoughtful, sensitive conversations including you as the parents. This ensures that we get to the heart of the challenges you are going through collectively, and therefore find the right solutions for you, your child and your family.
I love what I do because……
Empowering children to do/be/feel something they didn’t think was an option is a huge privilege.
Hearing about the confidence that comes when a child tries a new activity, or conquers one that was once a huge challenge is so rewarding.
Seeing the joy on a parent’s face when their child hits a milestone that they weren’t sure if they’d ever see, is also a joy for me because along with this work that I do, I am also a mum too.
With 4 children of my own ranging from toddler to teenager, this gives me a personal perspective on the challenges (and joys of course!) that parenting brings. I do understand the often-overlooked needs of the parents and provide support there too if needed for parents and/or siblings.
I am based in Nottingham and travel within the East Midlands. I also work with clients over Zoom too. To find out more about how I can help you or your family, please do get in touch for a complementary consultation.
