Kate Makin Occupational Therapist Newcastle

Occupational Therapist
Newcastle areas

Since qualifying as an Occupational Therapist in 2001 I have gained experience with a wide variety of client groups. I have experience in mental health, physical disabilities, learning disabilities, housing and wheelchair services. I have worked for both the NHS and social care as well as in the voluntary and private sector. In 2009 I set up Makin Life Easier, offering independent Occupational Therapy assessments and services throughout the North of England.

I am experienced in all aspects of Occupational Therapy, from assessment, to care planning, to implementing recommendations and treatment programmes. I routinely assess for, and recommend, all forms of disability aids and adaptations and am highly experienced in the housing sector having carried out large scale contracts for major housing associations.

My main area of expertise is complex seating and postural management as well as disability aids and adaptations. I have experience of undertaking medico legal reports as an expert witness and also routinely undertake desensitisation treatment for clients with complex hand injuries.

Recently I have begun to offer Occupational Therapy Career Awareness Sessions for those considering a career in Occupational Therapy.

I pride myself on being able to meet the needs of any client group, being able to offer all aspects of Occupational Therapy services: Activities of Daily Living assessments, Case Management, Disability Aids and Adaptations, Driving Assessments, Hand Therapy, Housing, Medico Legal, Mental Health, Moving and Handling, Neurology, Rehabilitation and Seating and Wheelchair assessments. 

I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council as well as a member of the College of Occupational Therapy Specialist Section for Independent Practice.
