Occupational therapists treat people with physical or mental impairments, helping them to achieve independence in their lives. They hold Bachelor’s Degrees in Occupational Therapy and are registered with the Board for Occupational Therapists, Medical Orthotists/Prosthetists and Art Therapists.
I am an occupational therapist with a special interest in sensory integration and a passion for early intervention within a multi-disciplinary setting.
I am certified in the use of Sensory Integration as well as the Interactive Metronome.
If you as parents are concerned about your child’s:
motor development (gross and/or fine motor)
sensory development (e.g. hypersensitivity, feeding or sleeping difficulties)
behaviour (e.g. attention difficulties, emotional dysregulation, anxiety)
functioning within the home, school or social environment
you are welcome to contact us at The Firs Therapy Center.
During an initial consultation with you as parents, the most appropriate assessment method for your child’s specific needs will be discussed. Following a comprehensive assessment to identify any specific difficulties your child might present with, a tailored intervention plan will be developed to best support your child and family. The aim during the therapy process is to fully support each child in developing age-appropriate skills in order to optimise his/her functioning in daily activities through the use of play and participation in meaningful activities.
The Firs Therapy Centre is a multi-disciplinary practice which offers therapeutic intervention to clients of different ages, with our main focus on early intervention and childhood development, although some therapists also provide therapeutic services to teenagers and adults. The team includes occupational therapists, physiotherapists, speech and language therapists, a cognitive development practitioner, a dietician and a psychologist with a special interest in family & play therapy.
At The Firs Therapy Centre, we believe in following a team approach in treating our clients, as this ensures the best possible support and therapeutic outcome. Our aim is to work with children, their parents, teachers, schools and other professionals, involving everyone as a team in providing support and consultation where needed.
