"Having had various professional roles throughout my life, including retail and secretarial, at the age of 38 I discovered Occupational Therapy and turned my career around to working with people who need it most. From that point I worked towards my goal of achieving a BSc (Hons) and entered the most progressive and understated profession there is: Occupational Therapy. My passion for how people should be and could be treated has led me to start my own independent practice and provide the best possible care that every person deserves. I have worked in Health for over 10 years, including the private sector and the NHS, predominantly in mental health, care of the elderly in the community and home environments. I have also worked with acute medical clients in hospitals and adults with severe learning disabilities and autism. My life experiences and excellent clinical skill set have enabled me to now provide a thorough person-centered package designed specifically for you and to give the very best care that you deserve"
