Introducing Jamie Blank
Founder, Director & Registered Occupational Therapist
Nice to meet you!
A little bit about me & my work
“Jamie”, someone said to me recently, “you just ‘get it’”. And I do. It’s the unbeatable combination of being both a professional and a parent - I can see your child’s struggles, and feel the impact on your family.
My professional career has been rich and varied, with time in child adolescent mental health, rehabilitation, and private pediatrics. I’ve seen and supported a huge range of both visible and invisible differences including autism, ADHD, trauma, depression, sensory processing, anxiety and physical disabilities/ developmental delay. I have over a decade’s experience and am sought after for my warm and wise approach.
Whether your child’s difficulties are physical, emotional, social, or seemingly ‘invisible’ such as anxiety or sensory-related, I’ll shine a light on what is happening, and how to move forward.
I’m about more than child occupational therapy. I’ve put the entire family in the picture. You’re in the struggle together, and you can be in the solutions together.
I’m all about creating simple, supportive solutions because I know too well what the alternative is - wading through parent groups for credible advice, or falling down the Google ‘rabbit hole’. I don’t want that for families who have enough on their plate already. I founded SPOT to give you somewhere and someone to turn to for genuine help. We can cut out all that confusion and get straight to some progress. Together.
I’m here to help your child and your family live better lives, and in the process, I’ve made my own pretty magical. I have enhanced my offerings to include coaching parents.
I can truly say my work is joyful, and it still leaves me head and heart space for my other big joy, my own young family.
When your child is facing challenges, you need two things - Help, & Hope.
Your child’s challenges can improve,
Your family life can be smoother,
Let me show you how.
