I qualified in 1994 with a BSc (Hons) in Occupational Therapy and am still passionate about what I do. I have subsequently gained further qualifications that alongside my clinical experience ensures that I can offer the best service to my clients.
I work with all ages to ensure that their environment/s work best for them. This can include assessments of home, school or work. As part of a treatment plan I will work with the client to set functional goals to help them achieve what is important to them. I can also assess for suitable vehicles, including caravans and motor homes. I will then provide a comprehensive report outlining my recommendations. I work independently but also enjoy working as part of a team so will liaise with other professionals involved as much as is necessary. I work with clients directly or through solicitors and case managers. I can also carry out assessments and provide reports for housing associations and local authorities. I am trustworthy and can be relied on to meet deadlines.
For people with vocational needs, I will carry out comprehensive assessments. Where appropriate I will assess the demands of the job and compare this to the abilities of the worker, within their work environment to help employers determine the most appropriate solutions to support people in work. If you are needing a more objective assessment of an individual's ability in their work, I am qualified to carry out functional capacity evaluations (FCEs).
I have an interest in how IT can assist individuals and am an Associate with Steve Wiseman Associates.
I also provide clinical supervision to occupational therapists working in public, private and charitable settings.
