My Approach

Mental Health has always been my passion. I am an Occupational therapist with extensive experience, 20+ years. I believe in empowering individuals to maximise their skills and achieve independence in their daily life regardless of their struggles and challenges. Developing and maintaining a secure and strong Occupational Identity, with meaningful occupational roles, self-empowerment, self-esteem and resilience is my priority. My approach follows the strong Principles of the Model of Human Occupation-MOHO as well as the Recovery Model. Occupational challenges are opportunities to maximise and support the individual to learn new skills or re-discover lost ones.These same challenges are faced by the individual's family/carers/peers/physical and social environment. I aim in supporting and providing bespoke recommendations offering a wholistic approach to the individual and their context according to their needs.
