College of Occupational therapy


Kirsty Clark
Occupational Therapist

  • Occupational Therapy Degree, University of Plymouth.
  • Psychology Degree, University of the West of England.

Kirsty qualified as an Occupational Therapist in June 2017, after completing her Psychology degree in June 2011. Kirsty really enjoys being an Occupational Therapist, and values the importance of therapy to promote independence in activities of daily living, which she believes ultimately impacts health and wellbeing for everyone.

In order to help facilitate independence, Kirsty works alongside staff and students in therapy sessions to promote the use of everyday skills which can be used within the college and at home. These include a focus on the use of fine motor skills, and activities such as cooking and work experience. Each session is designed using evidence based practice, to ensure therapy sessions are valuable for every student. Furthermore, Kirsty recognises the importance of remaining client-centred whilst ensuring she practices holistically; therefore, viewing the student and their environment as a whole.
