Background

The Headway therapy team comprises Neuro-Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Psychotherapy, Neuropsychology, and volunteer complimentary therapy practitioners.
These therapies are offered within Headway’s Day Service (a community where people with brain injury are valued, respected and given opportunities to fulfil their potential) and at times, at someone’s home or another venue in the community.
In January 2017 Headway was commissioned by Enfield CCG to provide a Community Brain Injury Service in the borough of Enfield. This service provides specialist therapy services for adults with a non-progressive acquired brain injury except a stroke.

  • Facilitating the Enfield Community Brain Injury Service weekly psychotherapy group.

  • Counsel people with ABI on any other areas that they may raise within parameters agreed in supervision
  • Provide couples counselling and family therapy to people with ABI and their family members
  • Counsel family members of people with ABI in group and one-to-one settings as required
