Therapeutic Model

I am interested in supporting individuals to participate in occupations that are meaningful for them. 

Within occupational therapy ‘occupations’ encompass everything we do – self care, daily activities, work, leisure, hobbies, our life roles.

I am also interested in how our unique sensory processing needs and challenges relates to our participation in occupations and aim to support this understanding in others.

In My Own Words

The fact that the client is a centre of all that we do as a service. The joint working approach to ensure that clients benefit from several different specialisms when trying to enhance their strengthens and work through their challenges. The supportive team enables growth and development for staff.
I am interested in supporting my own intrinsic wisdom and that for others, I run a monthly group for girls moving into puberty to be a safe space to explore, celebrate their uniqueness and strengthen the connection to their inner knowing, something we all have if we can tap in a and listen.
I love to dance and move and wild swim. I am passionate about peoples right to be heard and valued within society and promote equality and celebration of difference.
