I am a Registered Learning Disability Nurse and Specialist Mental Capacity Assessor. I have over 8 years of experience working with individuals with impaired cognitive states and reduced mental capacity.
I have been assessing mental capacity in line with the Mental Capacity Act (2005) since its inception and carry out mental capacity assessments on a daily basis as part of my main role as a nurse working with people with learning disabilities.
In my role as a Mental Capacity Assessor I have further developed my experience, so that I am proficient at assessing mental capacity for a broad range of financial and legal decisions.
I have specialist skills in working effectively with people struggling with communication difficulties and supporting them to make their own decisions. I am committed to empowering people the make the choices they are able to, so they are able to live their own life as fully as possible.
