Parent

“Moyna has worked with my son who is 6 years old, for 2 years. He has ASD with learning difficulties, sensory processing difficulties and hyper mobility issues. He has very little speech or comprehension of the spoken word. We began working with Moyna around the time of my son’s formal diagnosis when he was just 3 years old”. read more

Yvonne Newbold
Parent and Author of “The Special Parents Handbook

“I first met Moyna Talcer some years ago when one of my children was struggling with lots of different aspects of daily living, and not coping well with the transition to Secondary School. At the time I didn’t really understand what an Occupational Therapist could achieve for my child, and I was concerned too about my child’s negative attitude towards meeting with yet another grown-up, “who’s just going to ask me a load of stupid questions”. read more

Abi
Client

“I had an assessment carried out by Moyna Talcer. Moyna was extremely focused, organised and on task. She acted in a very calm and professional way and if I felt uneasy at any point about the assessment, Moyna would very easily make me feel comfortable again about the task or activity I was completing. I would recommend Moyna to anyone!”.

Mrs Victoria Perry
Head of Performing Arts and Health and Social Care at Shirley High School

Moyna supported my Health and Social Care learners during lockdown providing a virtual workshop about the challenges faced by autistic children and how best to support and enable them to flourish.
The session was inspiring, the students felt at ease and asked lots of insightful questions which Moyna answered expertly. As a result, the group felt empowered to complete their coursework featuring a case study discussed with Moyna in her session. This was a brilliant workshop that helped the students engage at the most challenging time.

Thank you Moyna, your expertise, energy and enthusiasm were a welcome contagion in my class!

Kirsty Newman
Mentee

“I have been fortunate enough to be mentored by Moyna on two occasions in my career. The first was in my first paediatric locum placement after I relocated to the UK from South Africa. Moyna’s passion for the children was truly inspiring and her wealth of knowledge on such a broad range of conditions inspired me to start my own post graduate studies”. read more

Miss Emily Walker
Colleague Teacher

“Moyna’s specialist knowledge is second to none and the results of the sessions were beyond expectations in terms of the children’s balance, coordination, sequencing, core strength and fine motor skills. The sessions were well planned, structured and engaging, and her approach was open, friendly, enthusiastic and professional at all times. Her sessions were structured in such a way that they were organised but also allowed room for creative freedom and expression which resulted in the children having a sense of ownership and gave them an enormous sense of wellbeing”.

Emma Mocrei
OT Senior Specialist Paediatric Occupational Therapist, Mentee

“Moyna was my mentor and supervisor whilst I was working towards my Advanced Practitioner qualification in Sensory Integration Therapy. She was a huge source of support and guidance to me during a very challenging time in my career progression. The input she offered me was invaluable and she demonstrated to me her in-depth knowledge of her role as a mentor, and the subject matter.” read more

Bryher Tamsyn Hill
Occupational Therapist

Moyna is such a fantastic Occupational Therapist. I have followed her Facebook page as a fellow OT for several years. She has been more than happy to assist me on a couple of occasions when I’ve reached out to her with questions, which included a lengthy phone conversation about designing a sensory therapy space. I am now in the process of kitting our my own therapy space and many of Moyna’s hints and tips have been helpful! Thank you Moyna.
