Rehabilitation & Therapy
















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, reducing depression, worry, anxiety and stress, managing anger  and behavioural changes and 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). This form of therapy has a large evidence base and is recommended by NICE (National Institute of Clinical Excellence) for many psychological problems. However, all individuals are unique and Dr McCrimmon draws upon a range of effective therapeutic approaches to suit each individual. These approaches may include motivational interviewing, solution-focused therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness approaches and (neuro) behavioural interventions. 
 
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.
