I pride myself on ensuring the work I do is client centred and enabling. As a case manager, I use my occupational therapy background to support me in my role. My clinical experience enables me to be able to build a rehabilitation package that make sure all the needs of the client are met and the client will reach their potential.

"I have worked with Odile both in her capacity as a Case Manager and Neuro-Occupational Therapist during my role as a Clinical Neuropsychologist for clients who have an Acquired Brain Injury.
Whilst working with her it quickly became evident that she works well both within a team and autonomously. She uses her excellent written and verbal communication skills to good effect when liaising with professionals and clients alike.
Furthermore, as a Case Manager, her well developed leadership skills have been observed during multi-disciplinary team meetings where she has chaired the (sometimes difficult) process in a structured, methodical but sensitive manner.
In summary, I have found Odile a pleasure to work with!"
