Helen Kleiser BSc. (Hons), MSc.

I graduated as an Occupational Therapist in 2001, from Brunel University in London.  Since this time I have worked in a number of clinical fields, including mental health, physical rehabilitation, palliative care, falls and neurology. Further to my professional qualification I completed a Master’s Degree in Rehabilitation in 2005, which broadened my knowledge base and enhanced my ability to critically analyse the effectiveness of clinical practice in relation to research.

 

 Throughout my career I have continually updated my professional knowledge in order to offer clients individualised, holistic therapy programmes that are based on both clinical evidence and expertise.  I am trained to utilise counselling skills, anxiety management and motivational interviewing in my practice, alongside more specific neurological approaches.  I am also a qualified Postural Stability Instructor. As well as a clinician, I have significant management experience, with the latter part of my career spent working as a Professional Lead in Occupational Therapy. In this role I was responsible for the training and mentorship of staff, alongside service and strategy development in order to enhance therapy provision. 

 

My clinical expertise lies very much within the field of neurology, where I have developed a keen interest in working with those with Dyspraxia.   I am a strong advocate for the role of Occupational Therapy in providing comprehensive assessment and intervention strategies for those with the condition, in order for them to achieve their goals and to lead a more fulfilling life.

 

I am fully registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and an active member of the British Association of Occupational Therapy (BAOT).
