I graduated as an OT in 2017. I enjoy helping children and families understand how sensory processing impacts daily life and finding ways to improve overall wellbeing. I have three children who keep me very busy, and to balance this I enjoy yoga, spending time outdoors and tending my allotment.

Justine, Service Manager

I have worked with children and families since 1997. I feel strongly that every child deserves a safe, stable and happy childhood in a loving family and that as professionals we have an obligation to ensure children and their families have the support they need, when they need it, to enable them to thrive. Outside of work I love dog walking adventures, cycling, reading lots of fiction, and spending as much time as I can with my family.
