Improving quality of life, reaching your full potential

I provide occupational therapy and sensory integration services for people with disabilities or conditions of any age. I am dedicated to providing high quality assessment and therapy to all clients regardless of complexity or challenges.

­

­I work with individuals experiencing a wide array of conditions and disabilities. These include people with learning disabilities, cerebral palsy, developmental delay, autism spectrum conditions, musculoskeletal disorders, neurological movement disorders, autoimmune conditions, long-term respiratory and cardiovascular deterioration, among many others.­

 

I became an independent occupational therapist to offer more effective and personalised assessment and therapy specifically designed around each individual's needs.­

 

How It Works

The process starts with a thorough face-to-face assessment, which will cover all aspects of living for the individual with a physical or developmental condition or disability. Relevent daily living tasks will then be observed to establish the challenges to functioning. From this discussion and observations, we will identify the areas of difficulty or barriers currently experienced, all of which will then be detailed in a thorough professional report. If the person decides to continue with further sessions, we will work together to make a practical plan to overcome or manage those challenges.

This process works through collaboration. The lifestyle, challenges, goals, thoughts and ideas of those involved will never be judged or disregarded. I'm here to facilitate what you or the person you support wants to achieve, in whatever form that may take.­
