Sarah Shaw Occupational Therapist Staffordshire

Private Occupational Therapist
Staffordshire areas

"I qualified as an Occupational Therapist (OT) in 1994 and have worked for the NHS initially within medical, neurology and paediatrics before specialising in mental health. I have also worked for Social Services, providing assessments for equipment and housing adaptations. I developed skills working with individiuals with complex psychological needs and progressed to Team Leader and Head OT; managing a specialist mental health service. I have a specialist OT role within vocational rehabilitation and working with management of risk. I have a personal understanding of litigation, disability and the impact it can have on one's quality of life.

In 2006, I began to work independently, developing a private practice that provides OT to people with physical disabilities. I work closely with local companies, assessing employees with disabilities for adaptations in order to facilitate a return to work. I work for a company specialising in working wih amputees delivering assessments and therapy. I also have experience of working with a broad range of clients and providing medico-legal reports.

I have a broad clinical experience of disability and assessment of the physical/psychological impact of trauma on function and quality of life; experience working with amputations, neurological conditions such as multiple sclerosis and CVA, pain syndromes and brain injuries. I also have experience of working with individual's with HIV, learning disabilities and mental health problems both within the adult and elderly age ranges. I enjoy helping people maximise their functioning and quality of life."
