Hi I'm Hanna!

I am a registered occupational therapist with a Masters degree and over 16 years occupational therapy experience. I have postgraduate training in sensory integration and I specialise in working with children and young people with autism, ADHD and sensory processing difficulties.


I am a mum of two autistic children, one attends a special school and one is home educated. Being a mum is very important to me and I am continually learning from my amazing children.


I absolutely love supporting parents to better understand their child's sensory needs! I enjoy seeing how my assessment findings, training and coaching enables a family and school to make changes that make such a difference to their child's life as well as to the wellbeing of the whole family. If you need help to understand exactly what is going on for your child and what you can do to support them to be happier then you've come to the right place.

Children's occupational therapists (OTs) help a child to overcome challenges so that they can participate more fully in home, school and community life. They look at the child's skills and environment to see what is a barrier to the child growing, learning, playing, socialising and having fun. Barriers include sensory challenges (such as a need to be constantly on the move, difficulty tolerating haircuts, toothbrushing and noise), emotional and sensory regulation (getting upset, anxious or angry easily or difficulty with attention and focus) and motor skills (difficulty with reading writing, PE skills, getting dressed, riding a bike, tying laces etc). The occupational therapist then makes recommendations on how the environment can be adapted and how the child's skills can be developed to enable improved wellbeing and participation in daily life.

What is occupational therapy?

Understanding and implementing complex clinical information about your child can be overwhelming. As someone who has worked with numerous families and has personally received professional reports for my own children, I know first hand the challenges it brings. It's not just about comprehending all the details; it's also about successfully incorporating the recommended changes and strategies at home and in school. Often, when revisiting the report months later, you realise the significance of certain sections, but have forgotten the professional's explanation. You may have questions that you wish you had asked, but it's too late. It becomes evident that many of the recommended changes haven't been effectively implemented, leaving you wondering how to make it all work in reality.


Let me introduce Sensory Success, an assessment package designed to address these exact concerns. With Sensory Success, you'll not only gain a clear understanding of the report information, but you'll also receive dedicated support from me over the course of six months to help you implement the recommendations and overcome any challenges that arise. Additionally, you'll have the invaluable opportunity to join a close-knit community of parents who are going through similar difficulties.

Sensory Confidence is a 6 month online programme that combines in-depth sensory training with membership to my close-knit community where you will be supported on your journey. You will understand why your child is behaving in a particular way and discover exactly what you can do to help them feel happier. Whilst you work through the training at your own pace, you will be invited to attend monthly group question and answer sessions with me, post questions in the group, explore sensory activity ideas and benefit from being part of a supportive community of parents who are going through similar difficulties.

I offer half day sensory training (face to face or online) for schools, parent groups and care providers. The training can be during the day or split into 2 x twilight or evening sessions if preferred. The training starts with an introduction to sensory processing but covers much more! A sensory activities resource pack is also included. Click here for more information.

"I cannot speak highly enough of Hanna and the services she offers. Before I met Hanna I felt like no one understood my son and his needs. The assessments Hanna completed gave me a much greater understanding of my son, it has helped me source him help and support. Hanna’s therapy sessions have been greatly beneficial to my son, they has been great improvements in lots of aspects. Hanna is caring, calm, knowledgeable, professional and she has been brilliant my son. I would not hesitate to recommend Hanna. I can not thank her enough for all of her efforts."


"Hanna is amazing! After visiting Hanna we learned so much about our daughter that we weren't even aware of. Hanna's sensory space is out of this world. Our little girl struggles to communicate but Hanna was patient with her, made her feel at ease, was calming but also made her assessment lots of fun. Hanna is very knowledgeable and we cannot thank her enough, our daughter would not be getting the correct support if it wasn't for Hanna's advice. We will always recommend Hanna and the services that she offers. We look forward to Hanna working with our daughter in the future."


"Our experience with Hanna has been wonderful from start to finish. She is very professional and knowledgable, whilst being kind, empathetic and approachable. Thank you for all for care and expertise, it has made a massive difference to our family. We couldn't have asked for better, with the way you approached our son, and it is evident you want the best for every child you meet. The assessment and feedback is wonderful, and is hopefully the beginning of a more supportive education for our son. 
Thank you again."


"Excellent help and support from Hanna for my son at a very difficult point, she has helped myself as a parent but also the school he attends to put additional support in place. I now understand the issues and difficulties he faces on a day to day basis and the things we can put in place to make things easier. Hanna was very friendly and supportive and my son felt very relaxed and comfortable straight away; normally he struggles with meeting new people. 
Highly recommended. Thank you."



"Highly recommended, Hanna recently carried out a very thorough assessment on our grandson. The family were listened to, she has such a calming manner and used various ways to communicate with our grandson that put him at ease and he participated willingly and loved the activities. Several area of sensory need were found during these assessments that the doctors missed. Strategies and activities recommended have already started to show an improvement in behaviour. This lady is professional, caring with a wealth of knowledge and she communicates exceptionally well with all involved. Thank you, we really appreciate what you’ve done. Also learned lots from the Facebook live sensory activities session and would recommend these to anyone not just to those with children with sensory needs."
