Profile

I have worked with adults and adolescents with TBI and other neurological conditions, both in the acute and rehabilitative sectors (in the NHS and private setting) as a specialist physiotherapist. As a professional I am passionate about forging strong working relationships with clients, families and the wider team to maximise client independence and quality of life. I believe that for quality of life to be maximised for our clients, communication and client centred care is the key. I am a strong advocate with excellent communication skills who is able to balance clients’ needs, with the needs of individuals and the needs of the team and family to allow client centred goals to be worked towards and achieved.
