Languages

Carien is an expert occupational therapist who specialises in the field of paediatrics. She is based in South West Scotland and will travel in and around Scotland, as well as to North West England, visiting children and their families at home, in school or at nursery. During her career, Carien has completed various postgraduate training, including courses on sensory integration, Makaton and the Bobath concept.

Having qualified and trained in South Africa, Carien now provides independent occupational therapy to children and their families in the UK. Her experience is varied, having worked with babies born prematurely, babies and children with cerebral palsy and other neurological conditions, degenerative conditions and sensory difficulties.

Carien works collaboratively with the family to ensure that their goals are being met and the child is reaching their maximum potential. She provides advice and training, as well as specialist intervention which can include sensory processing, working on fine and gross motor skills, self care, and functional skills such as play or handwriting. With the treatment that Carien provides, there is a strong emphasis on the family working together to foster an environment that will optimise learning, growth and development.

As well as specialising in paediatrics, Carien has also worked with adults and assisted in their rehabilitation after hip and knee replacements, fractures, arthritis and other injuries. She has experience working with clients with neurological conditions also, including stroke.

To ensure her learning is up to date, Carien continues her professional memberships with the Sensory Integration Network and the College of Occupational Therapists Specialist Sections in Independent Practice.

Carien is just one of our nationwide network of therapists.
