As we approach the end of 2023, we wanted to reflect on this year and the growth of My Therapy Services!
In the world of Occupational Therapy, growth isn’t just about numbers; it’s about expanding our reach, touching more lives, and creating a community dedicated to fostering holistic well-being. We’re thrilled to share the exciting news of our OT service blossoming from a solo venture to a dynamic team of four incredible individuals – with Sheetal, Holly, and Zareen working alongside Manisha.
👩🔬 The Seeds of Change: Manisha’s (Our Founder) Vision Takes Root.
It all began with Manisha’s vision, a passion for helping others, and a commitment to making a positive impact. As a solo practitioner, she sowed the seeds of what would become a thriving OT practice. She undertook additional post-graduate training in Sensory Integration whilst managing a newly launched OT service.
Having 21 years of OT experience and being a mum of 4 herself, she felt well placed to use playfulness as a therapeutic approach and very quickly managed to bring some of the most reluctant children on board for therapy. Each child served was a testament to the effectiveness of her approach, reinforcing the need for expansion to reach even more individuals seeking support and growth.
🌟 Meet the Faces of Our Occupational Therapy Family.
Bringing a wealth of experience and a compassionate heart, Sheetal joined our team in January 2023 bringing similar values and focus within the world of paediatric OT. Her expertise in creating engaging and effective therapeutic activities for children adds further value and new dimensions to our services, ensuring we continue to cater to the unique needs of our youngest members of the population.
Sheetal has 19 years of clinical experience, most of which have been spent working with children within the age range of 0 to 18 years. This has been in a variety of settings including special schools, hospitals, clinics and the community.
Did you know Holly is based in Cornwall and works remotely?! Despite being so far from the team’s base, it certainly doesn’t feel that way for us or the people who we work with. She’s passionate about mental health and wellness and enriches our team with her background.
Holly joined My Therapy Services almost 2 years ago to initially assist Manisha with the administration side of things behind the scenes. She has a background of caring for families through her previous career as a Funeral Director and she thoroughly enjoys being able to help the team with what they do on a day-to-day basis. If you get in contact with My Therapy Services, the chances are Holly will be calling you back to make initial contact and gather all the relevant referral information before handing it over to the designated Occupational Therapist.
With a specialisation in accounting and finance, Zareen brings a wealth of knowledge to support us. Zareen is a graduate in Accounting & Finance from Nottingham Trent University. She possesses valuable industry experience obtained from working within various accounts departments and joined My Therapy Services as an Admin & Accounts Assistant in November 2023.
As a mother of three herself, child well-being is a subject close to her heart. Zareen’s previous job role was working as a Teaching Assistant in a local primary school. Joining My Therapy Services has been a golden opportunity for her to combine two of her great passions, by working in the accounts department for a company who so diligently tends to the needs of children. Zareen is hugely inspired by her colleagues, both personally and professionally. She continually strives to work hard in providing accurate implementation of the relevant administrative and accounting principles.
🌈 A Collaborative Approach: Strength in Unity.
The addition of Sheetal, Holly, and Zareen transforms our OT practice into a collaborative hub of diverse skills and talents. We believe that a collective effort yields the most significant impact, allowing us to address a wide range of challenges and create tailored solutions for each client.
🚀 What This Growth Means for You.
Expanded Services: Our team’s diverse expertise allows us to offer a broader range of services, addressing the unique needs of clients across various age groups.
Enhanced Availability: With more hands on deck, we can accommodate more clients, reduce wait times, and provide timely support to those in need.
Comprehensive Care: Our expanded team ensures that we can address the multifaceted aspects of OT, promoting holistic well-being and personal growth.
🌟 Looking Ahead: A Future of Possibilities.
As we celebrate this milestone, we’re fuelled by a sense of gratitude for the trust our families, schools and Local Authorities have placed in us. Our commitment to empowering lives through Occupational Therapy and Sensory Integration services remains unwavering, and we’re excited about the possibilities that lie ahead for 2024. Watch this space!!
Thank you for being a part of our story. Here’s to growth, community, and the transformative power of Occupational Therapy! 🌿🌟
