About us

In Fine Fettle is a company that believes that we should all be able to be at our best in life. We all need to function at as high a level as possible in our day to day existence. Physical and/or mental illness or injury can make this difficult at times.
At those times you may need the help of an Occupational Therapist (OT).

Occupational Therapy can help people of all ages when the everyday activities, such as getting out of bed in the morning, getting washed, preparing meals, going to work or school, become difficult. (BAOT 2014)

OT's are able to help people of all ages. In Fine Fettle is able to offer assessment and treatment for people from birth to old age, and everywhere in between. We are highly specialised in:

  • assessment and treatments of children
  • assessment and treatment of adults with learning disablities
  • assessment of properties that need adaptations to meet the needs of a disabled person
  • manual handling risk assessments
  • assessment and treatment of people who have an acquired brain injury
  • seating assessments for people who require supportive seating
  • advice to family members and carers about how they can help the person with a disability

If we receive a referral that we feel we are not able to give our best to we will find a suitably skilled therapist in the area who has the necessary skills. Rest assured we never take on work we are unable to complete to the highest possible level.

In addition to Occupational Therapy we also have a Mickel Therapist. Mickel Therapy is a drug free treatment for fatigue conditions such as fibromyalgia, ME and CFS. It is a way of identifying the cause of the fatigue condition and working towards dealing with it. This allows patients to become symptom free.

For further information on Occupational Therapy or Mickel Therapy please contact us at: or by phone on 07860 776988

Training, qualifications & experience

Angela qualified as an Occupational Therapist in 1991 and has since then spent 20+ years working in the NHS and Social Services before becoming and independent therapist.

As part of her professional registration, Angela is required to maintain an up-to-date continuing professional development file. This requires that she update her skills in line with any new research which comes to light as well an refreshing existing knowledge.

Angela has worked extensively in the paediatric field which led to a natural transition to learning disabilities in her last few year in the NHS. She has worked in a wide range of environments, including home, schools (both mainstream and special schools), day centres, work environmets.

Angela also has an excellent knowledge of postural management and seating for people who are unable to support their own posture. This requires regular updates and a good awareness of the equipment that is currently avaiable on the market.

Angela has spent many years working both directly and indirectly with the adapataion process for home and school etc for people with disabilities.

In November 2013 Angela trained to become a Mickel Therapist and now sees clients in local clinics as well as vis Skype and phone.

Mickel Therapy is offered initiall via a FREE 20-30 minute conversation to allow clients to decide if this therapy is for them. This is usually done via phone and gives the client the opportunity to find out what will happen in the sessions. If a client chooses to move forward with this the fee is £75 per session, although concessions may be available upon request.
