Diploma of the College of Occupational Therapy
I have spent most of my life being busy: playing sport, playing musical instruments, knitting, working, running the church music group, and bringing up a family. What activities we do, defines who we are.
Neurological conditions can have a huge impact on someone’s lifestyle, be that employment, hobbies, household chores or getting in and out of the bath. I have spent 20 years working with people with neurological conditions; stroke, spinal injuries, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease etc.
Occupational therapy is about analysing what you find difficult, and working out how you can manage better: working on specific movements, having the right equipment, learning to do things a different way, or trying something new. I am very motivated, good at problem solving and do not easily give up!
I am particularly interested in upper limb recovery after stroke and have completed a constraint induced Movement therapy course and can assess for and fit the saeboflex – a dynamic splint to assist with hand function.
I want to see you return to your optimal level of performance to enable you to get the most from your life.
