My main goal as an occupational therapist is to support parents / carers, families and children in anyway that l can. I do this by being a therapist who provides a holistic, personalised and flexible approach. I am a friendly, approachable and reliable occupational therapist who strongly believes in getting to know the children/families to make sure their needs are met. I use problem solving skills to plan suitable therapeutic intervention (through play and activity) to meet children’s goals to enable as independent functioning as possible to ensure positive well being for all involved.
I have a have a VAST amount of experience including adult and child mental health, equipment services, children's and neurological and inpatients / outpatients, which l draw upon to provide a tailored and holistic approach.
