Patti Summerville BSc (OT)

I qualified as an Occupational Therapist (BaOT, Hons Class 1) at the University of Queensland, Australia in 1996 and have worked for the past 20 years in the UK in a variety of adult and paediatric inpatient, outpatient rehabilitation and community settings.
I bring to the field of assessment and treatment intervention for children and adults with dyspraxia and other neurodiverse conditions a rich and skilled background in paediatrics and adults neurological rehabilitation. I am committed to maintaining my professional development and have undertaken postgraduate training within the sensory integration, trauma attachment, neurodevelopmental and vocational rehabilitation fields.
I have worked in the NHS and private paediatric practice for more than 15 years seeing children and their families with a wide range of disabilities, liaising with school staff and other health professionals.  


Additionally, I have extensive experience of setting up, delivering and monitoring community based adult rehabilitation programs in people’s own homes and work places. My vocational rehabilitation experience involves return to work re-training, support and liaison with potential and current employers.
I am registered with the HCPC (Health Care Professions Council), a member of the BAOT (British Association of Occupational Therapists) and the following BOAT special interest groups: children young people and families and independent practice.  Where appropriate I enrich my OT intervention programs with additional skills from my yoga and mindfulness meditation teacher training background.  


I believe as a highly skilled and experienced Occupational Therapist with a holistic focus on the individual and commitment to the use of evidence based treatment interventions I can assist our clients to create practical and meaningful life changes to enhance their sense of achievement and satisfaction in their chosen private and professional life roles.
