Kerryn Searle

Clinical Operational Manager, Occupational Therapy Team Leader and Neurological Occupational Therapist BOccThy | OTAM

Kerryn became an occupational therapist because she likes being able to work with someone as a whole rather than just focusing on one area.

Kerryn enjoys working with people in their own environments where they feel most comfortable, and really getting to know her clients. She takes a storytelling or narrative approach to assessment, which means she listens to their history to ensure that therapy is as relevant to them as possible.

Kerryn graduated as an Occupational Therapist from La Trobe University in 2001 and soon took time out from Australia to learn the ropes of community-based rehabilitation in the UK. Since then, she has worked in spinal and neurological rehabilitation around Melbourne, most recently as the senior clinician and manager of an Occupational Therapy department in a rehabilitation hospital. Kerryn’s passion is working with clients to modify their homes as well the use of assistive technology to enable people to live as independently as possible.
