Experience

­

I have been working as an Occupational Therapist in and around London since qualifying in 2008, with experience in the NHS, Social Services and Private Sector. I have worked with people with a wide variety of disabilities and conditions.

­

Through my work and training, I have developed skills in rehabilitation, activity analysis, problem-solving and life adaptations. I have also gained a broad understanding of personal life challenges and useful interventions through ongoing research and conferences into increasing quality of life. I have up-to-date knowledge of available equipment and am constantly updating my knowledge and contacts with leading and innovative equipment and support providers.

­

I have had many close interactions with charities and not-for-profit organisations in both a personal and professional context. I will continue to keep in touch with them, as these organisations are often highly knowledgeable and valuable sources of support.

 

I have developed solutions for complex moving and handling needs, seating and postural management requirements, daily living difficulties, environmental barriers and behavioural challenges. I’ve worked with support staff in residential and day services to ensure the individual's were able to achieve their full potential.

­

I am professionally registered with the Health and Care Professions Council and Royal College of Occupational Therapists.­

Many people with long-term conditions and disabilities face an array of challenges, including lengthy waiting lists for occupational therapy assessments, which are also often limited to the necessities of living, losing the wants and aspirations of the individual and the people who support them. An assessment by Adaptive OT will include all aspects of the individual, the people who support them and plans for the future. Quality of life is the key.

 

Sessions may include:

Discussion about the difficulties and challenges the person is experiencing

Discussion with significant people in their life, including family, carers, friends, or anyone who is important to their daily life

Observing functional tasks

Assessing the environment in which the difficulties or challenges occur

Goal setting

Daily living skills

Healthy lifestyle solutions

Employment skills

Seating and postural management assessment

Manual handling assessment

Equipment review

Home adaptation recommendations

Long term planning for future achievements and requirements

Mission Statement

To empower adults with physical and developmental challenges and disabilities to live without barriers.


Vision

Using personal and professional experience, and through continuous development of services, I will provide practical solutions and develop relevant life skills and strategies with adults with physical and developmental challenges and disabilities, so that they can live life to the fullest.
