Amie Hood's profile

Amie Hood HCPC member, Member of Royal College of OT's specialist section Independent Practice, Post Graduate Module in Specialist Care

I began my career as an Occupational Therapist in 2006 after graduating from St Loyes at Exeter University. I have worked extensively within the specialist field of Neurology, including brain injury rehabilitation, stroke and long-term progressive conditions such as MND and MS. I have worked in acute and rehabilitation settings for the NHS, and for specialist providers, as well as in the community. I have extensive experience in supporting clients from the acute stage of their injury into slow stream and community rehabilitation, I am therefore able to understand the long term impact of brain injury on clients and their families. I can also support people to return to work following diagnosis or injury.
I use a person-centred approach and a range of evidenced based techniques to overcome the cognitive, physical and behavioural difficulties associated with a client’s injury or illness. I am particularly passionate about supporting people to find appropriate seating and managing their posture; being able to sit comfortably will increase the opportunities to take part in meaningful tasks as well as prevent complications from poor posture or being bed bound. During my career I have worked with children and adults who have multiple and complex needs and I am dedicated to finding ways for people to improve their quality of life.
