Catherine Manley 's profile

Catherine Manley BSc (Hons)

Handworks Rehab Ltd

Highly experienced occupational therapist and case manager specialising in rehabilitation following complex trauma; including amputee rehab, multiple trauma, peripheral nerve injury, brain injury. My approach has a strong focus on restoration of function within the client’s home, work and wider community. I am experienced in providing vocational rehabilitation and return to work planning, working collaboratively with clients and employers to facilitate positive outcomes. I am skilled in addressing both the physical barriers to occupation as well as the psychological impact of trauma and injury on my clients well-being. In addition to my case management work I maintain my clinical expertise in hand injury rehabilitation with a small, weekly clinic.
