I specialised in the conditions of strokes and other acquired brain injuries soon after qualifying as an Occupational Therapist in 1999. I have mainly worked in the NHS, but I have also worked in the private sector, and spent three years as a Brain Injury Case Manager working in personal litigation.
I work collaboratively with people who have suffered a stroke or acquired brain injury and as a result have a range of physical, cognitive (thinking) and perceptual difficulties.
I have high levels of expertise in assessing these difficulties and working out how they’re affecting your everyday activities within the home or wider community. Examples may be getting washed and dressed or making a meal, or getting out and about to pursue hobbies and interests. I also have extensive experience of supporting people to return to work, or to retrain for a different vocation if this is one of your goals.
I will formulate a completely individualised treatment programme to target specific difficulties and maximise your independence to achieve your goals.
You will receive the optimum treatment to ensure the best possible outcome.
