I qualified as an Occupational Therapist in 2009 and have since specialised in the field of adult physical disability. My clinical experience includes dementia, chronic respiratory conditions, chronic cardiac conditions, rheumatology, trauma and orthopaedics, cancer, diabetes and various neurological conditions.
I began working as an independent occupational therapist in 2016, and I have gained significant experience in social care assessment, advising various local authorities on the implementation of care packages for clients living in the community.
My independent practice has given me the opportunity to support clients following traumatic injuries including orthopaedic injuries and traumatic brain injuries. I use goal setting to enable my clients to be as independent as possible and I work closely with clients, carers and family members to offer my expertise and deliver the best possible outcome.
As part of my independent practice, I work in specialist rehabilitation and case management. Following thorough assessment, I make recommendations to reduce physical barriers and maximise independence and safety.
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 Civil Procedure Rules (CPR) pertaining to expert witnesses.
