Directory - other disability therapists in the UK

Disability Therapy Directory

We get many requests from people asking us if we know of other therapists with disability knowledge and experience. Spokz People do offer an online service for those not in the Midlands, but some people would prefer a face to face session or don’t want to wait for a space.

Unfortunately, it is a sparse. We hope to add to this in the future, so do contact us if you are a disability affirmative therapist, have personal experience or if you as the client happened across a great therapist.! :-)

Disclaimer: we have not been a client with any of the below therapists, so cannot comment on how useful their service is and cannot give any recommendations.
