I’m a kind and compassionate person with a caring personality. I’m empathetic by nature and that’s reflected in the career choices I have made to date. Whilst I have spent the last ten years in self employment working as a Pilates Instructor, I have spent two and a half years in a caring role for adults with learning disabilities which included mobility and communication. The last three months of this has been a live in carer supporting elderly clients in their own home. In addition to this I provided a key role of support to my father during his illness (stroke, neurological, physical), and as such I have extensive practical experience in delivering medication, organising and managing hospital appointments etc.
I am adaptable to the needs of the client but have a predisposition to working well with mobility issues owing to my training as a Pilates instructor and massage therapist and can provide assistance to physiotherapists in this instance by implementing directly the mobility exercises prescribed including hydrotherapy based exercise. (Qualified swimming instructor).
I have strong admin skills and am a proficient typist so can offer secretarial support as needed as well. Typing is something I can do well (enough) so happy to be in a strong PA role.
Animal lover - dogs, cats, horses - so dog walking and assistance with pet care is a welcomed addition to any role.
