Sherlock Consulting Background

 Sherlock Consulting was developed by Kate Sherlock in 2021 in tribute to her late Aunt Jean.

 Kate has worked as an occupational therapist for over 10 years, though disability has always been part of her life, her motivation for her career and close to her heart. 

Kate's experience in occupational therapy and disability care is unique in many ways. Her occupational therapy experience includes skills in workplace rehabiltiation, vision specialist services, community care, and private practice aged care services. Kate works in the aged care sector as her passion is in ensuring that her clients are supported to age safely in their own homes.

In terms of consulting, Kate has varied experience in the public service and the application of legislation to policies, procedures and funding requests. Kate is a specialist decision maker and delegate, and she has strong skills in training staff to understand disability, and client funding needs.

What is Occupational Therapy?

According to Occupational Therapy Australia:

"Occupational therapy enables people to participate in activities they find meaningful. These activities include taking care of oneself (and others), working, volunteering, and participating in hobbies, interests and social events. Occupational therapy is a client-centred health profession that involves ongoing assessments to understand what activities you can do (and those you want to do), any current limitations, your goals/motivations and also to offer advice/techniques about how to do something more easily and safely.

Occupational therapists (OTs) prescribe devices to help you do the activities you want and need to do. They will make sure you can use the device in the best way to meet your needs. This means that you will get a total solution and not just a product."

Simply put, Sherlock Consulting will work with you to access the supports you need to reach your individual goals and stay as independent with your favourite activities and routines for as long as possible.
