As a social worker I have worked with people who have a range of disabilities including learning difficulties, complex physical disabilities, autistic spectrum disorder and brain injury. I have also worked with older people and adults with conditions such as motor neuron disease and strokes. During this time, I developed skills in working with people with severe cognitive impairments and communication difficulties.
I am a registered Social worker with over ten years of experience assessing mental capacity in line with the MCA (2005), as part of work as a social worker with Buckinghamshire County and subsequently my role with TSF Consultants.
Over my professional career I have tried to put the person at the centre of all the work that I do, respecting and valuing their individuality and ensuring that promoting choice and decision making whenever this is possible.
