Psychological Therapy

At Next Wave Therapy, we provide mental health occupational therapy (OT) for our patients.

This helps people who are struggling with mental health concerns, including stress, anxiety and depression to understand their situation, improve coping skills and enhance quality of life.

The ultimate goal of mental health OT is to help our patients live meaningful lives, as independently as possible.

Together, they have many years of experience delivering mental health OT to people who are overwhelmed with their lives and need assistance to overcome one or more personal challenges.

Depending on your needs, Sasha and Annabel will help you deal with stress and strong emotions, cope with grief and loss, improve your social skills, develop independent living skills, self confidence or manage your day-to-day tasks.
