Empower Occupational Therapy was created in October 2016, with the main focus to engage, educate and empower children and their families in achieving positive outcomes. Providing occupational therapy to families in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire in their own home ensures children are comfortable in their own surroundings and learnings can be adapted to suit family life. With an occupation focused mindset, therapy looks to the child as a whole, not to isolated activities, encouraging a wide range of skill development.
I am passionate about inclusion, participation and a sense of belonging, believing that building strong and robust mindsets, along with physical skills is key to success. I have special interest in Dyspraxia, Developmental Coordination Disorder, Sensory Processing difficulties, Growth Mindset, and Learning Difficulties. I frequently work with families who have received formal diagnosis of Autism or ADHD.
I am a member of the Royal College of Occupational Therapists (RCOT); registered with Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC); member of RCOT Specialist Section: Independent Practice; member of RCOT Specialist Section: Children, Young People and Families; and PVG/Disclosure Scotland approved (children and adults).
I am passionate about empowering others and building strong foundations in physical and mental skills. Through professional and personal experience I believe that small changes, effective strategies and belief in success through use of activity can improve mental wellbeing, physical health and performance outcomes.
