About me

I am an award winning qualified Senior Occupational Therapist - who specializes in creative Occupational Therapy interventions.

As a Mental Health Occupational Therapist, I specialize in providing assessment, treatment, and evaluation for individuals with mental health conditions. My primary aim is to make a positive impact on the lives of the individuals I see and their families. I am driven by a deep passion for helping individuals reach their full potential, enabling them to lead fulfilling and independent lives. I have extensive experience working with clients facing a diverse array of mental health challenges. I am happy to travel anywhere in the UK providing I have advance notice. I can do initial assessments both in-person and online (depending on the situation and requirement).

Apart from working as an OT, I also do research in the field of using 'Film making' as a therapeutic activity within Mental Health and Learning Disability settings. I have previously completed empirical research in this area as part of my MSc Occupational Therapy course, and had presented this at various conferences - such as:

- World Federation of Occupational Therapy Conference, Paris, August 2022
- Association of Medical Humanities Conference, Ireland, June 2022
- Malaysian Occupational Therapy Conference, May 2022
- European Art Therapy Federation Conference, April 2022

For my research works within therapeutic filmmaking, I have been recognized with the following awards:

- Behind the Scenes Champion (Small Employer) Award, InsideOut Awards, June 2024.
- President's Award, Association of Medical Humanities Conference, Ireland, June 2022.
- Special Mention (Highly Commended) at the HSJ Patient Safety Awards, October 2022.

I have also taught therapeutic filmmaking for the 1st year BSc Occupational Therapy students at University of East Anglia (Norwich), and University of Essex (Colchester).
