    Since qualifying as an Occupational Therapist in 2005, I have worked primarily in physical disability and neurological rehabilitation. My initial experience working as an occupational therapist was in a private rehabilitation unit for adults with acquired brain injuries, where I developed skills in physical, cognitive and behavioural rehabilitation.

    Since then I have held a variety of occupational therapy roles in the NHS, Local Authority and in private practice. These roles have allowed me to gain significant clinical experience working with people post surgery (elective and trauma orthopaedic, cardiac and amputations), people who have experienced life changing injuries such as acquired brain injury, spinal cord injury and those with long term conditions. I have also worked as a specialist neurological occupational therapist for a private neurological rehabilitation provider.

    My most recent NHS post was as a clinical advisor providing county wide support to case-holding clinicians in the management of complex cases.  

    Having left working in the NHS, I continue to work in clinical practice as a private occupational therapist, as a case manager and as a locum occupational therapist for Hampshire County Council.

    I also undertake medico-legal work for Somek and Associates. I accept instructions from both Claimant and Defendant Solicitors and Insurers, as well as single joint instructions. 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.

    I am able to complete face to face assessments across the United Kingdom and abroad and am experienced conducting assessments with a translator.
