Developing People & Organisations
Modern Human is a specialist Occupational Therapy led service providing practical solutions and skills to young people, adults, and organisations. We work with you to identify your needs and help you to develop strategies to cope with your current challenges.
Occupational Therapy helps you to achieve what you want to do, need to do and are expected to. Helping you to overcome barriers that prevent you from doing the things that matter to you most.
We offer occupational therapy in schools and youth organisations. We work with young people who are experiencing social, emotional and mental health difficulties and help them to access learning and increase life chances.
We use occupational therapy to help people cope with life transitions by helping them to carry out the activities they want to do and need to do when life takes a change of direction.
Employee Performance & Wellbeing Support
We provide supervision and support to staff at all levels within the public and third sectors whose wellbeing may be affected by the daily challenges of their work.
Consultancy and Training
We provide consultancy in service development and bespoke staff training to organisations within the public or third sector.
Challenge, change and transition are a part of everyday life. It helps us to develop and keeps us excited and rewarded.
However, at times, no matter what age you are and for a variety of reasons, life can become demanding and difficult to manage. That is why I created Modern Human, an Occupational Therapy led service that works with you to find practical solutions to achieve the things you want to do, need to do and are expected to do.
We help you to develop the skills to cope with the demands and challenges of everyday life and to gain greater satisfaction in the things that matter to you most.
What we do
We work with adults and children of all ages who are experiencing a wide range of difficulties.
For young people we work with those who have difficulties participating in everyday activities due to social, emotional, mental health and wellbeing problems. We help children develop skills to create positive experiences to overcome barriers to learning and participation.
For adults, we work with individuals who might be finding it difficult to cope with life challenges and transitions. This might include reducing your stress, managing an illness, improving your mental health or adapting to changing circumstances. We also work within organisations, providing supervision and support to your employees, providing them with the tools to help reflect on their performance and build resilience.
At Modern Human our practitioners are all qualified and registered health professionals with more than 30 years’ experience working across the health, social care, public and third sectors.
We primarily use activity as a therapeutic medium rather than talking therapy. That is, we engage in activity to develop the skills and strategies that you need. We can work on a one to one basis or with small groups.

Occupational therapy (OT) is a health and social care profession, regulated by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). Occupational therapy takes a “whole-person approach” to both mental, physical health and wellbeing and enables individuals to achieve their full potential (Royal College of Occupational Therapists 2017).
