Natasha Nutt from Movementum

Natasha owns and runs Movementum, an OT practice that helps to build a culture of empowerment and continual learning through workshops, practical training courses, problem solving sessions, service reviews and risk assessments.  Movementum works with care agencies, health professionals, support workers, and individual’s with physical care needs to improve the way that people are physically assisted to carry out their daily tasks.
