Professional Advisor Wellbeing and Activity

Linda Patel was just 7 years old when she stood in front of an audience seated in their sheltered housing communal lounge. Fast forward (quite) a few years, after travel and embarking on a career in welfare for ten years, in 2010 she moved into the field of mental health and qualified as an Occupational Therapist in 2014. Linda is able to demonstrate that through occupation a person is able to have a productive and healthier balance to life. She likes to challenge the way we think about people as unique beings and is an enthusiastic advocate for research and evidence based practice – developing and implementing interventions that enable participation in daily life.
