I am passionate and committed to providing high quality care. I have extensive experience providing assessment and case management for clients with multiple pathologies including catastrophic brain and spinal injury. I am skilled in offering education and training to professional staff, relatives and support workers.

One of my clients used to be a keen cyclist before he suffered a brain injury as a result of a road traffic accident. As well as recruiting a multi-disciplinary team to support my client with his rehabilitation, one of the most satisfying things has been recruiting a support worker who has been able to accompany my client on bike rides as well as trips to the driving range at the golf club. It’s always rewarding to be able to restore a former hobby or pass time for a client and I know my client is especially thankful for this. (Male client in 40s)
