“To make a long story short, I have been working with Lindsay to return to work after a long stint of being away.  When I first met her several months ago I was in a very bad place and could not even imagine returning to work.

From the very beginning Lindsay made it very clear that she was in my corner. Her upbeat attitude and never say quit demeanor worked wonders on me over time. Each and every time I met her for a session, I would feel better and better about myself.  She didn’t only successfully transition me back to work, she also helped me to feel better about who I am, and helped me to grow as a human being. I can’t say enough about her. I am so happy I was lucky enough to have Lindsay in my corner.

I wish that every office had the energy that seems to come from yours [Gowan Consulting].”

Feedback on our Occupational Therapist, Lindsay Cox, with a Return to Work program

“Nancy Gowan brought forward excellent information and tools to assist us in the work we do. Nancy presented her information-rich workshop “Managing Employees in Distress – Tools to Support Emotional and Cognitive Concerns in the Workplace” at the June 2018 annual conference for Ontario Occupational Health Nurses. 96% of attendees said they could immediately apply what they learned from Nancy at their workplaces. The level and complexity of the workshop’s content exceeded attendee’s expectations with 95% saying they were satisfied/very satisfied with the learning experience Nancy delivered.

Much appreciated, attending the course has made me look at assessments from a different perspective, that I think is helpful in selecting the correct candidate for a job, identifying training opportunities and easy improvements to reduce the cognitive burden during task completion (particularly for someone brand new to a task) and also for accommodating someone with cognitive difficulties.  I look forward to an opportunity to join one of your courses in the future.

On Our Physical Demands Analysis with Cognitive Demands Analysis Component Course.

Over the course of 2 days, the CDA certificate program effectively and efficiently enabled me to develop skills to be able to confidently perform and generate an objective CDA. I have taken both the CDA and CBT courses and have found them to be thought-provoking, applicable, challenging and relevant to better assist in RTW cases.
