How long have You worked with Kent occupational therapy?

Feb 2022.

what do you like about being an OT?

The work I do is very practical, and I believe housing adaptations can make a significant improvement to a person’s life. A person may have been making compensations for the way they live their life due to a disability or long-term condition. It is very satisfying to practically realise a solution for them to make their lives more independent and meaningful. For example, a simple stair lift adaptation for someone that has been living downstairs and sleeping on the sofa for many years can transform that person’s independence and wellbeing and practically enable access to their bedroom and allow them to sleep in their own bed!

Outside of work

I enjoy history and art, especially the arts and craft period and the designs of William Morris. I collect antiques, mostly early advertising which I have bought and sold over the years. I also enjoy sports, especially golf and tennis and walking my dog, Teddy. I worked for Adidas sport for many years, dealing with professional golfers, thus golf is a big passion of mine. Most of all I enjoy spending time with my wife and young family, I have three beautiful girls and I love being a dad.
