Rehabilitation & Therapy

Sometimes it may be beneficial to arrange sessions following the assessment to implement and consolidate some of the advice, recommendations and strategies discussed. This can help to improve independence, reduce psychological distress and improve emotional wellbeing.

Dr McCrimmon also provides sessions aimed at improving mood and cognition, reducing depression, worry, anxiety and stress, and managing anger, fatigue and behavioural changes caused by brain injury or dementia. She has considerable experience of working with couples and families to facilitate adjustment to the consequences of injury or neurological illness.

Dr McCrimmon draws on a range of evidence-based psychological interventions, including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), neurobehavioural approaches and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). However, all individuals are unique and Dr McCrimmon draws upon a range of effective therapeutic approaches to suit each individual. These approaches may also include motivational interviewing, solution-focused therapy and mindfulness approaches.

Dr McCrimmon has extensive experience of working alongside other therapists (e.g. physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists) to provide a multidisciplinary approach to rehabilitation, adopting a person-centred, goal-oriented approach to achieving increased independence and wellbeing. Having worked within the locality and specialism for many years, she is well-informed to advise on accessing NHS, voluntary, charitable and independent services within the area.
