After 4 years at university, when I first started out as an occupational therapist, I really had no idea what I was doing. But I was extremely fortunate to have mentors and supervisors who helped me develop my clinical skills. Without them, I would not be here today.
In those early days, now over 20 years ago, for my clients living with severe memory loss I was always struggling to get any kind of result. Well, the results that truly mattered, that made life easier, better.
I tried a lot of different things. I reached out to other colleagues… I knew that by asking the right questions would help me get to a better place and ultimately help my clients…
For many of my clients, I was seeing them after the bad news about their health and their lives' were starting to unravel. I was constantly playing catch with a lot of "I wish they knew this or that" so that "this wouldn't be happening to them".
I knew that this was not sustainable and couldn't go on like this.
So, I committed my career to understanding aging and the brain and all that we can do to protect it, help it recover and mitigate the impact when conditions start to impact a person' life.
I started my Neurotherapy and Memory Health Clinic with the vision to stop avoidable memory loss and to help those living with brain based conditions to live better.
I spent a fortune on books, training, masterminds and private coaching, and of course continued professional development. I've built wonderful friendships through my podcast journey. Now, I am confident that I and my guest expert educators can share with you what helps and what doesn't.
