Thank you for wanting to know a little bit more, so here we are:
I love home educating our three children, so I understand the complexities and joys of both parenting and teaching. I love to help people relax into parenting and enjoy it for all it's worth. My dear husband has Multiple Sclerosis so I know the pressures of dealing with long term situations and how we need to dig deep to enjoy life and even to cope with life sometimes. I also love singing, but that's another story!
I have a BSc Degree with Distinction in Occupational Therapy, and have worked in Europe, Scotland, England, Ireland, Wales and Northern Ireland. I'm an international conference speaker and currently undertaking a Masters degree in Sensory Integration. As an Advanced Practitioner in Sensory Integration, (Ayres SI Therapist and mentor), I work in three main areas:
With children who are not performing to their potential, or with parents and family members who would value extra support.
With adults that would appreciate knowing their own sensory processing patterns and learning how to manage them best.
As a training resource and consultant for those in education, clubs, and business.
I gave my life to Christ at 13 and purely want to live to serve, honour and bless Him. I "just knew" that I wanted to be an OT since that time so my faith and work life have developed hand in hand. I now only want to use therapy practises that will enhance faith and bring His healing and touch into people's lives.
I love to work with people of all age, faith, disability, sexual orientation, colour, nationality, creed and any other differences we might find amongst ourselves! I do not discriminate against anyone. I hope you will not discriminate against me for being a Christian as I seek to serve. Thank you.
