Katherine Pont

Occupational Therapist

Always out playing with her small human and dog

Katherine is passionate about supporting children and young people to understand big emotions and navigate activities of daily life. She uses play and creative therapies to engage in learning skills that will support them as they grow. Katherine understands that children don't stand alone and that the whole team needs support in getting the best out of the young person. Every child is different and every therapy plan needs to reflect this, in order to thrive at home, school and in the community.
