Area of interest and relevant experience

Interoception particularly for school attainment including targeted and universal whole class/school approach.

Working with those who have either self or assessed diagnosis of Autism. I particularly enjoy developing bespoke sensory strategies including sensory circuits, personalised movement break designs, as well as this is me/us sensory booklets.

EHC plans and the ability to effectively renew/set annual review outcomes and targets. Incorporating the young person’s voice into their plan using the concepts such as the KAWA model

Occupational Justice is a passion of mine. By utilising the Participatory Occupational Justice Framework I can factor into my sharing of knowledge to bring about societal change for those whose voice is often not heard.

Passionate about Neurodiversity-affirming practice. Working with those who are autistic or identify as autistic starts with building safety and connection. I particularly enjoy developing bespoke sensory strategies and working with establishments to understand the need for environmental accommodations.

When did you start working with Kent Occupational Therapy?

In the spring 2023.

what do you like about being an OT?

There is no greater joy than spending time getting to know the people I am working with. Each person is unique, and to help empower them to get to where they want to be is a privilege. I am a natural problem solver and love collaborating to come up with diverse, new, and sometimes interesting ways to allow individuals to access the occupations they desire to do. I have an undergraduate degree in early childhood studies as well as a degree in Occupational Therapy and a master’s degree in special needs and inclusion. I follow neurodiversity affirming practice principles which acknowledge that all neurotypes have unique strengths, interests, and support needs and bespoke person-centred sessions are what I always aim to achieve.

Outside of work

My interests outside of work include travelling, cooking middle eastern food, finding a nice coffee shop to relax in after walking my Frenchie Joey and spending time with my family.
