Helen Bird
BSc (Hons) Occupational Therapy

Care Expert, Case Manager

I have worked equally with adults and children for over 15 years as an Occupational Therapist (in health and social care settings).

Since 2007 I have mainly worked as a Case Manager with adults and children, and I have completed expert witness training.  My expert caseload will form the majority of my work but I will also carry a minimal Case Management caseload ongoing.

I have engaged in this work because I love to help people and I like to make a difference to people who have difficult lives.  For example, I signposted a desperate mum to a few quick, simple solutions to alleviate a summer holiday crisis with a child.  I could see and feel her relief that the next 6 weeks could be manageable and I drove home feeling satisfied with my work.
