A little about me...

I grew up in South Wales, and moved to London in 2011. I studied psychology in Swansea University, and moved to London to train with Teach First as a science teacher.

 

After having my little girl, I decided that I wanted to embark on a more holistic career, and began a full time master course in occupational therapy.

 

Since qualifying I have worked as an independent therapist within mainstream schools, qualified as a Sensory Integration Therapist, and am currently working as a specialist occupational therapist in an integrated community therapy team working across North London special schools.

I'm a mum of two and it is truly magical to watch them both grow and develop at their own stages. Having a toddler and a school aged child has really enhanced my professional experience and knowledge. I have been very lucky to spend time at home with my now 2 year old when she was little and decided to run sensory play sessions for her and other babies. This was great fun, and also provided me with the opportunity to practise and develop my skills in sensory integration therapy. 

I'm a very musical person, I play the piano, viola and sing most days. I enjoy bringing my love of music into interventions with children, and have often used song to support children's learning. Prior to having my second child I ran an inclusive choir for children with autism. 

As a scientist I love exposing children to the world of science. Whether in the classroom or outside, I believe science and nature can enrich children's learning, and provide the foundation to therapeutic work.

I've been described by friends and colleagues as fun loving, personable and compassionate. For more information about what others have said about me, please go to testimonials
