As a paediatric occupational therapist, Louise has dedicated her career to transforming the lives of children with physical or learning disabilities.
She has spent the last 11 years working with children from birth to 18 years to promote their independence and safety at home.
Focusing on cases requiring complex care, Louise supports children with conditions that have a permanent and substantial impact, such as palliative care, brain injuries, Neurodevelopmental disorders, genetic conditions, sensory processing & behavioural difficulties, and birth defects.
Louise has a wealth of experience in the areas of manual handling, risk assessment and equipment provision. Securing a safer, more independent future for her clients means Louise is always managing the needs of several stakeholders. Her holistic, client-centred approach involves collaboration and a forensic attention to detail at every level.
Liaising with architects, technical staff and contractors, Louise recommends both minor and major adaptations that have a lasting effect on her clients’ daily lives. She also works alongside local housing associations to build adapted, future-proofed homes.
She prides herself on her incomparable communication skills. Every client Louise has worked with can attest to her warm, empathetic, and approachable nature, which offers comfort and support under the most difficult of circumstances.
