Occupational performance coaching

Stressors such as life disruption, loss, transition, illness, and environmental circumstances can impact your ability to effectively and comfortably participate in daily life activities. Such difficulty functioning often leads to a vicious cycle of stress, problems functioning and more stress.

Occupational Performance Coaching (OPC) is an action-oriented and strengths-based approach to help you do the things you value and participate in activities that are important to you. OPC helps people identify, work towards and achieve their goals, while developing problem-solving skills that can be applied to future challenges.

Occupational Performance Coaching sessions are offered by senior MHSc occupational therapy students and are supervised by a registered occupational therapist.
