Skills for the Job of Living

Loved every moment of my career! Have worked extensively for Social Services, Charities and Mental Health and value the time spent with clients/their loved ones, being involved with enabling them to make the best decisions when adapting their environment, managing health and getting back to valued living.

I support organisations (incl. Primary Care, LAs, Housing, residential/nursing home sector, Charities, Voluntary Sector) in achieving service excellence and value for money (eg work for Mencap designing new accommodation for 27 residents, environmental redesign in the Care sector, use of the new Better Care funding, Implementing Dementia training). I have considerable experience on the Work Programme In Getting people back to work and valued occupations including supporting and training colleagues in mental health awareness.

I have a background in Counselling, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Life Coaching so am able to help identify/meet client needs holistically and compassionately. I have undertaken postgraduate training in Positive Psychologies, Brief Solutions Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, mindfulness and Acceptance Commitment Therapy. I have worked alongside Jen Gash, OT Coach and authored a chapter on Return to Work: Enabling Positive Change - coaching conversations in Occupational Therapy

I network extensively and maintain my professional development portfolio; am an experienced Carer with first-hand experience of a range of health challenges within the family (incl. Dementia, Parkinsons, Brain surgery, Cancer, Fibromyalgia, Arthritis and Autistic Spectrum).
