I have worked extensively with clients who have complex physical, sensory and learning needs, and have excellent skills in providing an accurate and holistic assessment.
I am flexible in my approach to problem solving, and have considerable experience working with clients to address their overall rehabilitation and care priorities, as well as finding practical solutions for day to day issues, particularly in the areas of self-care, leisure, education, and vocational activities. I am adept at thinking ‘outside the box’ to help address my client’s needs, working closely with family, carers, legal team, and others within a client’s support network.
Many of my clients have been through some level of trauma, and I am experienced in identifying and ensuring appropriate psychological support.
