I established Birrell Associates to enable me to provide a service that can be flexible to meet the needs of clients with varied and complex needs. I ensure my hunger to deliver positive outcomes for our clients is engrained in the service we provide.
Since qualifying as an occupational therapist in 2013, I have gained invaluable experience of working with clients across the NHS, local authorities and the private sector. I am experienced in assessing life changing illness and injuries and understand progression of long-term conditions. I work with adults of all ages and have experience of assessing and treating a range of complex conditions including but not limited to acquired brain injury, progressive neurological diseases, orthopaedic conditions, multi-trauma and spinal injuries. I am experienced with utilising my clinical skills to provide comprehensive assessments and reports, giving clear clinical reasoning to ensure my decision making is backed by evidence. My knowledge and work experience in rehabilitation gives me a comprehensive understanding around client’s potential of recovery and enables me to identify suitable rehabilitation goals. I regularly work with case managers, deputies, solicitors, contractors, surveyors and equipment representatives to ensure provision meets the client’s assessed needs. I provide rehabilitation, equipment and recommendations for adaptations to support clients to live independently at home.
I put my clients at the heart of my work and I am passionate about supporting them to live their lives to the best of their abilities.
