Harbour Farm Occupational Therapy

“I started my career as a social therapist. I graduated from Loughborough University and went straight into employment in a secure unit, where I worked within forensic mental health. That was in 1999.

I gained valuable insights during this time relating to psychosis, early intervention, peer support, evidenced-based group and one-to-one intervention, self-harm, anxiety, depression, bipolar, grief, loss, change, and bereavement.


For the next 11 years, I worked within the field of mental health, recovery, and well-being services in NHS and charity sectors. I continued building on mental health skills and knowledge. I also used CBT, sensory integration, mindfulness, recovery, and relaxation techniques successfully.

In 2010, I wanted to be more practical in approach and qualify in occupational therapy, so I completed a health-to-occupation postgraduate diploma. As an occupational therapist, I am uniquely dual trained (the only profession which is) in both physical and mental health. I am interested in a person within their environment.


I have gained further experience in the last 8 years in a range of areas, and I have been supporting people within their own homes/environments. I found out that I could also build on existing knowledge and skills and transfer them into practice. I continued to work within the NHS in assessment and treatment services to add to my skill base.


I decided that I needed a challenge in 2014, so I set up as an independent occupational therapist. So far, it has proved to be one of the best decisions I have made. Having endless possibilities and a whole range of opportunities to be able to recommend to people helps me make informed decisions for people working together.


People pay for my current, evidence-based, safe specialist recommendations that are focused on a person’s needs and wants. I view people holistically within their environment. I create a care plan based on gold standard assessments and collaboratively set treatment and interventions, reviewing them regularly.


I have worked with age ranges, from perinatal to later life, including palliative care. I can prescribe equipment. I have good firm contacts whose products can be delivered to your door for trials with no pressure to buy. We can assess and try them before making decisions as to whether they will be kept or collected. This is normally free of collection charge.


I can use a range of approaches within my practice. I complement other practitioners who also work within a person-centred, humanistic, and holistic way. I will be interested in your activities and occupations, from when you wake up in the morning until when you go to sleep at night time, as well as your sleep.


I have recently completed a continuing professional development course in contemporary children and young people’s occupational therapy. This enables me to diagnose developmental coordination disorder (DCD), including dyspraxia. I thoroughly loved the course, and I am using it in my everyday practice.


Again, I will be interested in all activities within a child or young person’s day, including self-care, leisure, productivity, and their environment. I use my specialist skills to create sensory profiles/diets that can make a huge difference in the needs of children and young people. Please give me a ring to discuss. Looking forward to hearing from you soon.”
