I qualified as a HCPC registered Occupational Therapist in 1998. For most of my career I have worked in senior positions in NHS multidisciplinary community rehabilitation-based services for adults with neurological and complex needs. I spent 4 years as a Team Leader providing a service to patients with progressive and non-progressive neurological conditions including Acquired Brain Injury.
I have developed effective clinical and leadership skills; a dedication to understanding and advocating what is important to my client, to source the right team and facilitate working together to support optimum choice, safe independence, and quality of life. I value evidence-based outcome measurement in line with national guidance to monitor effectiveness.
My existing caseload includes clients over the life span, from age 11 to 79 years. I believe working closely with the client, family and significant others towards agreed and structured client-centred goals leads to a positive experience and outcome.
