Roya has spent over 10 years working in healthcare settings and teams, supporting people with varying needs, developing skills in building rapport, working in a person-centred way, and thinking holistically about people’s care.

With her Clinical Psychology background, Roya brings experience in working with people and systems, including inpatient brain injury rehabilitation and other hospital contexts.

Roya has supervised and managed other professionals, learning to strike the balance between being directive and reflective.
Roya has worked with clients from diverse backgrounds and understands the need for care and therapy packages to fit the client's cultural values. She is skilled in maximising the potential of the injured individual, and those who are instrumental in their support and recovery. Roya is a good communicator, ensures that the professionals involved in a case are kept abreast of developments and, as a reflective practitioner, uses feedback to progress her client’s needs. Roya brings all her skills to the management of care teams for the sustainability and stability of the care package around the client.
