Since qualifying in 2000 as an Occupational Therapist, I quickly focused on my chosen speciality of Neuro-rehabilitation. I have experience of working in acute hospitals, community hospitals, a specialist neuro- rehabilitation centre as well as in a community neuro-rehab team.
I am able to work with a range of neurological conditions, particularly acquired brain injury (for example, hypoxic brain injury, stroke and traumatic brain injury). I have a particular interest in working with clients who experience cognitive or behavioural difficulties however I am also a skilled clinician with regards to neurological visual difficulties and upper limb weakness.
During my time as a Brain Injury Case Manager, I was able to develop my skills and experience of working in vocational rehabilitation with clients who have sustained a traumatic brain injury or orthopaedic injuries. Input has included brain injury education to the client and employer, assessment and adaptation of the workplace (where required) to manage a client’s cognitive and physical challenges. Fatigue, anxiety management and graded return to work programmes have been utilised to enable clients to successfully return to part time or full time employment.
I accept instructions from both Claimant and Defendant Solicitors and Insurers. I have undergone formal training in the medico-legal process and am fully aware of my responsibilities under the Civil Procedure Rules (CPR) pertaining to expert witnesses.
