I am a highly experienced occupational therapist with a diverse background over 20 years working in the NHS, social services and hospice. My areas of expertise are stroke rehabilitation, neurological conditions (e.g. Parkinson's Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Motor Neurone Disease), managing your symptoms such as fatigue, breathlessness or anxiety, and moving and handling. My focus is always on what is important to you, rather than on your diagnosis, so we can work together to enhance your life. My dual training (occupational therapy and movement psychotherapy) mean I am uniquely skilled to work with you practically and emotionally through transitional phases in your life.
I also have experience working with people with palliative long-term conditions including respiratory and heart conditions. My training as a movement psychotherapist means I can offer you techniques, strategies and support to help you make emotional adjustments to any changes in your circumstances.
I am passionate about wellbeing, and for each of us to feel as well as possible within our individual situations.
