Profile

A rehabilitation specialist with 20 years’ experience in neurological and general medical in-patient and community settings within the NHS, third sector and independent practice. I have a wide range of clinical skills and experience, and have become highly specialised in the rehabilitation and management of Traumatic Brain Injury and Stroke.

I have extensive knowledge of assessment, planning and delivery of specialist rehabilitation programmes, and organisation of complex discharges for people with a range of medical conditions including orthopaedics. I work effectively as both part of a multi-disciplinary team and an independent rehabilitation specialist. I am hardworking, enthusiastic and efficient. I enjoy working closely with clients and their families. I have many years of experience in supporting them to manage their needs and meet their goals.
