If you have not been assessed by an Occupational Therapist, you can request an assessment through the Local Authority/ Social Services; contact your local Social Services department to refer yourself, or ask your GP for help with a referral. I would always encourage you to seek an assessment to see what help may be available to you in your area. There may be a wait for an assessment in some areas.
If you prefer, you can find information on Independent Occupational Therapists to complete an assessment on a private basis (which you would pay for privately) through 'The College Of Occupational Therapists Specialist Section- Independent Practice.'
The above link will take you to their website where you can complete a search via their online directory of State Registered Occupational Therapists in Independent Practice.
