My main goal as an occupational therapist is to support families and children in anyway that l can. I do this by being a therapist who provides a holistic, personalised and flexible approach. I am a friendly, approachable and reliable occupational therapist who strongly believes in getting to know the children/families to make sure their needs are met. I use problem solving skills to plan suitable therapeutic intervention (through play and activity) to meet children’s goals to enable as independent functioning as possible to ensure positive well being for all involved.
I have been qualified for 10 years and have a VAST amount of experience which l draw upon to provide a tailored and holistic approach.
Some brief history of myself; I discovered occupational therapy whilst trekking for 4 days with an experienced occupational therapist through northern Thailand in 2004. I went on to qualify as an Occupational Therapist in 2009 with a MSc. (Pre-Registration) Occupational Therapy from Leeds Metropolitan University. I live in Leeds and have a small family consisting of a husband, two small children and two cats.
