I am an experienced disability, mental health, and brain injury support worker with a graduate degree in BSc Psychology, accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and an MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience and Neuropsychology. As a Psychology graduate, I have a strong interest in supporting clients using a holistic approach to building confidence and developing skills and abilities to help guide in everyday life.
In my position as a Brain Injury Support Worker, I have worked as part of a multidisciplinary team under a case manager overlooking the implementation of treatment methods offered by occupational therapists, speech and language therapists and cognitive behavioral therapists. By working alongside parents of the children, I gained a significant amount of experience providing high quality and creative care which many times included playing video games! Through the use of gaming and interactive play, I have found that by providing a safe and comfortable environment that encourages growth and independence, the development of fine motor skills, communication and social interaction as well behavioral regulation while playing can easily be translated into real life scenarios and situations.
My 6 years of experience working in health and social care has enabled me to develop strong skills in supporting people of all backgrounds, ages and conditions. This has further allowed me to develop excellent interpersonal skills, patience and the ability to stay calm under pressure. Working at MindJam is an amazing opportunity for me to combine both my passion for gaming alongside my knowledge and experience working with young children with special needs.
