At Lifeworks Occupational Therapy, we understand the challenges faced by individuals with Functional Neurological Disorder (FND). Our specialised services aim to provide tailored support to help you regain control of your life, increase your independence, and enhance your overall well-being, inspired by the FND program developed at the Mater Centre for Neurosciences (Brisbane).
How can Occupational Therapy help?
Functional Neurological Disorder (FND) is a medical condition that affects the nervous system and the way the brain and body communicate with each other. FND can cause a wide range of symptoms, including movement difficulties, cognitive issues, and emotional challenges. It often impacts a person’s ability to perform daily activities and maintain a fulfilling lifestyle.
Occupational therapy is uniquely suited to address the multifaceted needs of people with FND. Our therapists focus on helping you participate in daily activities, from self-care and household tasks to leisure and work-related activities. By addressing movement difficulties, fatigue, pain, cognitive issues, and emotional well-being, our occupational therapists can create a personalised plan to help you overcome barriers and achieve your goals.
We understand that each patient’s needs and circumstances are unique, which is why we offer flexibility in our occupational therapy service delivery, including in-person clinic sessions, home and community sessions, and Telehealth services. This ensures that patients can access the support they need, regardless of their location or situation.
If you or a loved one are experiencing FND symptoms, Lifeworks Occupational Therapy is here to help you regain control, overcome barriers, and live your best possible life.
We begin by listening to your story and understanding your needs, goals, and aspirations. Our therapists work closely with you to create a customised plan that suits your unique circumstances. We believe in a collaborative approach, empowering you to take charge of your own recovery journey. Our FND program is designed to help you manage symptoms and resume daily activities without requiring an inpatient stay, allowing you to stay engaged in your daily life while receiving support through our clinic or Telehealth services.
