I graduated from UEA in 2000 with a BSc (hons) in Occupational Therapy. Since qualifying I have gained a wealth of experience in both clinical practice and in training others across the NHS, Social Services and Voluntary Organisations. I have worked closely with some of the most well respected names in the field researching the effectiveness of Occupational Therapy in promoting independence and well-being.
Alongside my private clinical work I have also founded a training company and am the only OT accredited to train Kent County Councils staff in the art of enablement and the use of adaptive equipment.
My approach to treatment is dynamic and adaptable focusing on the interaction between person and environment. Using functional assessment I identify the factors that limit an individual’s abilities to carry out daily tasks and through co-operative goal planning find ways to overcome these limitations. Well-being and independence are at the heart of my practice.
