Motivational and engaging activities that help give purpose and improve quality of life

Footie 2

Heads Up Therapies Football Club

Using football for therapy helps keep clients motivated and engaged in their therapy sessions. The sessions are run by a qualified occupational therapist and level 2 football coach. Participants of the group must be ambulant; this group is unfortunately not suitable for wheelchair users. Attendees must also be over the age of 16.

Social Events

We believe that joining in with everyday activities and social events improves wellbeing.

We understand that after an acquired brain injury, clients can struggle with emotional anxiety and fear around participating in social activities. Perhaps the social activities they used to enjoy now present a challenge. We work closely with our clients to break the barriers to their participation in social activities and events.

“Ryan Price and his team at Heads Up Therapies are always an excellent addition to any brain injury rehabilitation package.

Heads Up occupational therapists are always knowledgeable, creative and approachable. At Heads Up Therapies they clearly put clients first, whoever the client is and no matter what the challenges are.

You can rest assured that clients will be listened to and put firmly at the centre stage of a rehabilitation plan that is always in the community, always relevant, always meaningful and sometimes surprising.

Be prepared to see your client playing football, being a DJ or working on a conservation activity! Behind the scenes, Heads Up Therapies will have found what makes your client tick, understood what they need, sourced and risk assessed the activity and then worked with the client to learn from the experience.

The positive results speak for themselves. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Heads Up Therapies service.”
