Download Liz’s CV

After completing a psychology degree Liz started studying for her Masters in occupational therapy (pre-registration) in 2009. During this time she also worked as a home carer supporting clients in their homes with activities of daily living. This provided valuable experience of how illness and disability affects the daily lives of people living in the community, and how the right support and care packages make a positive difference to function and quality of life.

After qualifying in 2011 Liz took her first occupational therapist role in community mental health services. This role involved supporting service users with chronic and enduring mental health difficulties, in a number of community houses. Therapeutic goals and interventions were designed to maximise independence and promote social inclusion. This role provided insight into how mental health difficulties can impact all aspects of living. It also highlighted how a role and identity within the wider community is important to promoting health and well-being for anyone affected by illness.

Liz moved into a sub-acute unit for people with acquired brain injury and other neurological conditions. This was a bedded unit which focussed on physical, cognitive, emotional and vocational rehabilitation. The ward boasted a highly experienced multi-disciplinary team, and here Liz learnt a great deal about the management and rehabilitation needs of individuals with very complex neurological illnesses and injuries.

In 2014 Liz chose to specialise in neurological therapy and took a senior post on an acute stroke unit. Here she became very experienced in the use of standardised cognitive assessment and developed a keen understanding of how impaired cognitive function affects people’s ability to participate in daily living. She also developed excellent moving and handling skills and a good working knowledge of the equipment required to be able to mobilise and transfer after a serious neurological event.

In 2016 Liz chose to amalgamate her extensive experience within the NHS and move into a case manager position with Tania Brown Ltd. Liz is passionate about supporting clients following traumatic events to bring together her sound knowledge base and clinical skills to support clients in achieving their goals.
