About Rhi

LinkedIn Button

With a proven track record of excellence in paediatric Occupational Therapy, Rhi is an asset to any team she works with. Compassionate, professional and meticulous, she has over 14 years experience working with children and young people with complex physical, cognitive, environmental, sensory and social needs both in the UK and Kenya across a range of clinical and non-clinical settings.

Widely regarded as caring, supportive and passionate about what she does, Rhi has worked with a broad spectrum of conditions including Cerebral Palsy, Acquired Brain Injury, Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties, Muscular Dystrophy, Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), global developmental delay, emerging diagnosis’, Down Syndrome and syndromes without a name (SWAN). As many of her clients present with co-existing diagnosis’ Rhi is experienced in undertaking comprehensive assessments as part of a multi professional, multi agency team, whilst recognising the parent/carers as experts in their child’s care. She is also experienced in implementing compensatory and rehabilitative treatment approaches including prescription of adaptive equipment, complex specialist seating, positive behaviour support plans and sensory diets.

Alongside her private practice work, Rhi is Swansea Project Director for ELI Project, a charitable organisation which seeks to promote the social inclusion of families who have children and young people with additional needs, both in the UK and Kenya. This work has allowed her to glimpse the lived experience of having a child with additional needs to address the isolation and social anxieties these families often face.

Rhi is currently using her OT skills and knowledge in both her local community and in Kenya by consulting on the development of a children’s centre in Nairobi and on environmental adaptations to her local church building and grounds.

Rhi has a 1st Class Honours degree in Occupational Therapy and was awarded the Maeve Groom Prize for Practice Placement, achieving the highest grades of her cohort for practice placement. More recently Rhi has achieved a distinction in Foundations and Neuroscience; module one of the Sensory Integration Network’s MSc in Sensory Integration.

Rhi is now actively working towards a Certificate in Ayres Sensory Integration though ASI WISE to consolidate her practice in this field and is a volunteer tester with the EASI (Evaluation of Ayres Sensory Integration) International Data Collection Project.

Rhi combines her 14 years paediatric OT experience with 14 years in sales, marketing and administration making her a well rounded, efficient healthcare professional.

Rhi is registered with the Health & Care Professions Council and is a member of the BAOT and Sensory Integration Network.
