Our approach is to involve the patient throughout the therapy process. A multidisciplinary approach is taken to every aspect of therapy with inputs from Audiology, ENT, Geriatric medicine (Falls clinic), Physiotherapy and Psychology as required.
What happens in therapy?
The clinician will have a discussion with you to find out what problems you would like to address in therapy. The clinician may then either do a treatment manoeuvre (known as particle repositioning manoeuvres) and/or develop a tailored exercise program. Your will have both individual sessions as well as group session in your therapy program. The group sessions are conducted by Jacqui Seaton (Charted Clinical Psychologist).
How many sessions would I have have?
Typically you would be seen for three individual sessions and two group sessions. You may require less or more sessions as determined by your clinician. It is however important that you are active in therapy and discuss any problems you may have with your clinician.
What kind of support is offered during therapy?
You will be individually assessed in your initial appointment and a clinician will be assigned to your care. You will thus have one point of contact throughout your treatment.
