It was a desire to offer a creative, holistic approach to clients that drew Celina to occupational therapy. After graduating from UCT, she initially worked in psychiatry and then with an international pharmaceutical company before deciding to specialise in paediatrics.
Celina has many years’ experience of working with children and their families. She has a Sensory Integration Certification, is a Tomatis Level 2 practitioner and an Interactive Metronome (IM) and basic DIR Floortime service provider.
Celina is passionate about life and learning. She has a special interest in sensory-processing disorders and learning difficulties and in finding ways to overcome barriers to optimal functioning in children and adults. She believes in empowering her team of occupational therapists by encouraging them to make use of a variety of tools and approaches focused on problem solving and solutions. For Celina, team work is key.
She’s an energetic and passionate visionary who believes in the potential of others. Celina is a skilled and experienced clinician who generously shares her wealth of knowledge with colleagues and clients alike. Her therapists value the insights she brings to case discussions, and the cutting edge tools and methods she continuously introduces into the practice. It is a privilege to work with such an inspiring practitioner.
