Our Team

We are qualified Occupational Therapists, registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and Royal College of Occupational Therapist (RCOT).

We have experience working across a range of settings, including outpatient community and inpatient teams. Our passion is working with children and their families; we have a particular specialism in Sensory Integration, and Sensory Attachment Intervention. Our background prior to becoming Occupational Therapists was working within children’s sports coaching, activities, drama, dance and play sessions – having fun! We keep this at the core of all of our approaches.

We provide our services alongside Key Adults; birth parents, adoptive parents, foster carers or guardians, Social Care Workers, Teachers and Teaching Assistants.
