Testimonials from our clients

We needed an OT to help with house adaptations and equipment for our severely disabled child. Murdo has been incredible. His personal organisational abilities are faultless and he can be relied on utterly to produce an accurate, consistent but speedy report. He worked with distinction, having people out to measure ramps and wash pods literally the day after the rental was offered to us. He considered options to keep our child safe, padding radiators and fireplaces. He was very professional with a positive attitude and great communication skills, liaising with everyone involved in our team, including multiple parties. I would unreservedly recommend him.

Emer – we would be lost without your support and just want to say thank you for everything you’re doing for our child.

Emer's client's parents

Your input has made such a difference to H and us. Prior to having the assessment I didn’t know which route to take or what would be most helpful. I’m so glad I picked the OT route as it’s practical and directly correlates to H’s well-being. I cannot thank you enough.

Alexa's client's mother

B called me on video call after you left, he was so excited about the cheesecake you had made together in the session. He told me he was so proud of himself that he put on the song proud by Heather Small, he also sang along to it because he was so happy with himself.

I am writing to thank you for the time Sarah took to come and meet our Access and Achievement Department and see our resources for supporting successful inclusion of our SEND students here at Chorlton High School. In addition to the advice, we are so grateful for the donation of resources to our department. The weighted-cushion and black-out tent have been particularly useful to support students to manage their sensory needs and help them setup for the requirements of the classroom. We are currently planning for students returning to school after the closure. I know the resources will help our students adjusting back to school.

I have worked with Vickie, Sarah and Katy from Advance OT and can honestly not speak highly enough of them.

Advance OT therapists are extremely knowledgeable in their expertise, are fantastic with the clients and their families, and support case management and the wider MDT to implement a holistic rehabilitation programme which is person centred to that client. I can rely on them to always provide timely updates and their report writing and clinical notes are everything a case manager need.

Advance OT are my go-to OT company for sure!

Louise Sheffield
Case manager Active Case management

Vickie has provided occupational therapy services to a number of my clients all of whom have a broad spectrum of disabilities.  Her level of knowledge, expertise and empathy has seen her quickly become part of my panel of most trusted providers and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.  She is and continues to be invaluable to those clients and their families in not only the provision of therapy services but also sourcing and recommendations for aids and equipment.

Our son not only has a disability but challenging behaviours which can prove to be very difficult. Vickie’s approach to this is second to none. She make her sessions fun and engaging but still professional and focused. Our son loves it when Vickie visits, we often hear him laughing out loud, which as parents is very comforting for us. Vickie has extensive knowledge of the equipment that best suits our sons needs and her good relationships with company reps just makes everything run smoothly.

In my experience of working with Katy she has shown herself to be professional and courteous. She has demonstrated an ability to build and maintain positive relationships with clients and their families, in even the trickiest of situations. Katy is responsive, and proactive in her approach. She keeps the client’s needs central to all of her input.

Emer is the best Neuro OT that has worked with my client. I cannot thank her enough for her input and support.

Jane Hammond-Hawkins
Lead Case Manager Community Case Management Services Ltd

She’s done a good job.  She got all the safety aspects in the house sorted for me in a good timescale.  She’s brilliant to approach.  But she does mither me about wearing slippers and my pendant

Stanley
Emer's Client

Advance Occupational Therapy have been in our lives for just over 2 years now and we are so pleased with the progress Brandon has made. He enjoys his sessions and he loves our OT Sarah! Sarah has always been so supportive and helpful, and works around what time suits us. 

Brandon’s sibling is always made to feel involved too, which is nice for both of them. We couldn’t be happier with the care that has been provided to us. 

Natalie
Brandon’s Mum

Emma has been amazing whilst she has been working with my son Parker, finding therapists who not only understand but have the patience to work with Parker is not as easy as some may think. Emma was first introduced to help Parker learn to control his powered wheelchair and that is exactly what she has achieved in a small space of time, he is less frustrated and more focused when moving around. Emma has also helped Vickie in some of their sessions, Parker absolutely loves having Emma around to help him achieve as much as possible. As a family I can highly recommend her and would say to anyone lucky enough to have Emma involved, be prepared to see your child develop and achieve their targets very quickly

Karina
Parker’s Mum

I work with Vickie, Sarah and the team in a professional capacity.

All the staff are friendly and knowledgeable in their field.

I love how inventive, fun and client centred joint therapy sessions are with Vickie, she is a joy to know and work with

Claire Ingham

The team at Advance OT are our go to for both adult and paediatric clients with complex physical and neurological needs. They always go the extra mile to source products that others just don’t think of, they build fantastic therapeutic relationships with both clients and their families and always deliver outstanding results. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their services.

Pat Bardsley

wow the difference Vickie has made to our lives is amazing thank you so much for listening understanding and never judging.

Sarah Holland

An amazing therapist who takes her time to get to know the child, gains their trust and helps support the child to excel beyond anyone’s expectations. Never sees a child with a disability but sees a child that needs support to overcome some extra barriers. We couldn’t be anymore thankful to Vickie, and would certainly recommend her to anyone and everyone.
