About Krysalis Consultancy

Neurological Occupational Therapy Specialists

We believe in the endless possibilities and potential of people.

Krysalis was established in 2006 to provide neurological occupational therapy rehabilitation services to adults and children. In the early days, Krysalis consisted of two Occupational Therapists both of whom shared a joint passion for neurological rehabilitation and a commitment to make a difference to the lives of those affected by brain injury.

This dedication has resulted in the company as we know it today. An organisation that has gained the trust of professionals such as clinicians, case managers and solicitors working within the brain injury litigation market, and which has helped a large number of individuals and their families.

Whilst the team has grown considerably since 2006, the foundation of key values that underpin every area of the organisation and guide day-to-day decision-making and service design remain unchanged today. Krysalis prides itself in providing a high quality, evidenced-based service. The skills of the team are supported and developed, with each of the clinicians delivering a friendly, yet expert and professional service.

Our purpose is to help the people who have survived life changing injuries. To help them to embrace change and inspire hope and optimism; to promote independence with everyday activities at home or at work.

Connect with Krysalis

I believe it is better to do one thing really well - if you focus on doing one particular thing, you get particularly good at it. We are Occupational Therapists and only work with people with a neurological diagnosis. We understand the challenges faced by individuals with complex disability.

    What others say about us

    • I am always so impressed by the therapist’s commitment to and ongoing understanding of Claire and her situation. I am sure the rest of the family will share my thoughts so please pass on our heartfelt thanks to the therapy team when you next see them. Sister of brain injury survivor
    • I just wanted to drop you a line to say, whenever I call the office, Claire, in particular, is always very charming and efficient. She is a good representative of your company and has a nice phone manner and a good approach to customer service. So, thank you Claire. Mother of brain injury survivor
    • The following will never be enough to illustrate Paul’s journey but we are eternally grateful to the NHS, IM, ILS, Krysalis and the whole infrastructure that has been created for Paul. Yes, Paul is focused, determined and driven but the whole team have created a rehabilitation environment that has changed our life and Pauls future, they have made the thought of life and rehabilitation, turn from the impossible to the possible. Brother of brain injured survivor
    • The thought of having the family undertake this journey alone seems impossible and we will be always grateful. We all recognise that James is still on the rehabilitation journey, but there is no stopping him. He has just walked to Mum’s & Dad’s on his own (phone first to say he’s on his way)... what a way to celebrate the 2-year journey.Brother of brain injured survivor
    • I highly recommend Krysalis Consultancy OT services. Anna has been our life line since she came on board to help my husband following his brain injury. He has improved greatly thanks to Anna’s input in assisting him to become independent, teaching him step by step the simple things which we all take for granted. Anna is there for us 100%, teaching us both strategies to enable us to achieve better results.Wife of brain injured survivor
    • Just a short note to thank you very much for your hard work and persistence over the last few months, your guidance has undoubtedly helped and taken the pressure off me (I have benefited from the sessions greatly). I am really encouraged by the last few weeks and optimistic that if Peter keeps working at it he will continue to make good progress.Brother of brain injured survivor

    What We Believe is true

    Our responsibility, first and foremost, is to the people living with their disability and the mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, friends and loved ones of the people who use our service. Meeting their needs means everything we do has to be of the highest quality.

    We work collaboratively with our referrers and believe it is our responsibility to deliver what they expect; to do a good job, to be cost effective and outcome focused, whilst offering a prompt and efficient service.

    We foster and honour a commitment and responsibility for our team; their contribution is essential to the organisation and the quality of service provided to our clients and referrers.
