My World Therapy

Specialist Paediatric Occupational Therapy, helping children to reach their potential at home and school.

Welcome to My World Therapy

We are a private Paediatric Occupational Therapy practice based in Harlow, Essex. We specialise in supporting Autistic children and children with diagnosis of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Developmental Coordination Disorder/Dyspraxia and Developmental Delay. Children travel to our sensory friendly and family friendly therapy practice from a large geographical area to access highly specialist Occupational Therapy assessment and follow up support.

Our assessment reports:

  • Help parents and school staff to understand a child’s unique sensory and physical strengths and needs.
  • Provide easy to implement recommendations that can be put into place straight away by parents and education staff.
  • Provide evidence for an application for an EHCP (Education and Health Care Plan).
  • Provide evidence to be included in an EHCP (Education and Health Care Plan).
  • If highlighted through assessment, our assessment report will provide a Consultant Paediatrician with the evidence they require to consider a diagnosis of Dyspraxia/Developmental Coordination Disorder.

Following the assessment, for local children (wherever possible), we offer follow up Occupational Therapy at home and school. Where this is not possible, we offer support remotely for parents and education staff. This is hugely important as there is a national shortage of Paediatric Occupational Therapists, especially those with the highly specialist skills and experience needed to support the group of children we work with. Remote support for parents and education staff provides access to a highly specialist Occupational Therapist who can help parents and education staff to implement recommendations on a daily basis.

ANNA HAMLETClinical Specialist Paediatric Occupational Therapist (BSc Occupational Therapy, MSc Autism, PG Cert Sensory Integration)
Anna qualified as an Occupational Therapist in 2001 at the University of Southampton, and subsequently spent a year working voluntarily in orphanages in Romania before joining the NHS. She has held specialist Paediatric Occupational Therapy posts in London, working for the Royal Free Paediatric Occupational Therapy Team, and following this, a Clinical Specialist Paediatric Occupational Therapy post for South West Essex PCT.

Anna is certified by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and a member of the Royal College of Occupational Therapists, as well as the Sensory Integration Network. She has an MSc in Autism and a PG Cert in Sensory Integration.

She has mainly worked with children aged 0-18 years, with a wide range of strengths and needs. Her specialism is supporting Autistic children and children with diagnosis of ADHD, Developmental Delay and Developmental Coordination Disorder/Dyspraxia.

Anna founded ‘My World Therapy’ in 2017 in order to provide individualised, timely, highly specialist, and up to date independent Occupational Therapy assessments and therapy for children with sensory and/or motor skills differences. Through thorough assessment, she can build a profile of each child’s strengths and needs. In addition, Anna recognises the importance of trying to understand what the world feels like to the child and also what motivates them (which is where the “My World” therapy name comes from). This enables an individualised therapy plan to be formulated. As a Mum of two children, Anna understands the importance of therapy being fun and of working closely with parents to understand their priorities for their child.

In addition to providing highly specialist individual therapy, Anna has had extensive experience of delivering training to parents, education staff and health professionals. Anna has also provided independent supervision and consultation to therapy services within Local Authority and Independent special schools.
