Occupational Therapist


DipCOT, Full Member of Expert Witness Institute


Traumatic Brain Injuries, Major Trauma, PTSD, Case Management, & Care Packages


I am an experienced occupational therapist and case manager specialising in the field of brain injury and qualified in 1992.  I have worked as a case manager since 2012, predominantly with clients who have sustained a traumatic brain injury. I have also gained considerable experience with major trauma and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In my case management role I complete Initial Needs Assessments, and set up and oversee rehabilitation. I have experience of managing large therapy teams, as well as setting up and monitoring care packages. 

Following qualification as an occupational therapist in 1992, I worked in various neurorehabilitation units, and was the head OT in two departments. I gained considerable experience working with people following a brain injury, ranging from those in a minimally aware state, to high level difficulties with executive functioning. In my head of department roles I managed a team of therapists.

In 2005, I was approached to set up an occupational therapy programme for a new social services home care team specialising in dementia. This work included setting goals for care staff and liaising with them regarding ongoing intervention. In 2008,  I transferred to a social services occupational therapy service. Here I assessed for and provided equipment, including for Disabled Facilities Grants, as well as completing manual handling and carer assessments and setting up care packages.

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.
