Specialist Occupational Health Practitioner
Founder and Owner of ABEL Occupational Health Resolutions.

From an early age I have always had a passion for the health and well-being of individuals. I believe for any professional and business to be successful, life skills are paramount as they are transferable and invaluable when offering advice and support to individuals.

I aspired to help individuals who suffer mental health illness and those who suffer with learning disabilities. I achieved a BSc Hons in Professional Studies in Nursing (Learning Disabilities and complex health needs) and Social Work (Forensic Mental Health). I was exposed to and worked in various settings and was able to develop a person-centred approach which allowed me to support and work well with individuals, their families, and carers.

I worked for the department of work and pensions assessing individuals who suffered with disabilities both mental and physical. Some individuals worked with support, whilst others were unable to work as a result of their conditions/disabilities. I was able to further develop my skills as I trained in musculoskeletal conditions and the assessment of such conditions. After working in this area, I developed a strong interest in Occupational Health.

I later directed and helped to build a successful Occupational Health Company. My journey and directorate experience inspired me to build my own occupational company. ABEL Occupational Health Resolutions Ltd has allowed me to follow my dream. We now have a successful multidisciplinary team who are dedicated, friendly and who are always ready to offer advice and support.

Registered Nurse
(B.S.c) Bachelor’s Degree

Faye is a highly skilled Registered Nurse who Specialises in Learning Disability and Mental Health.

Faye acquired further skills in her post for the Department of Work and Pensions. She was required to assess and produce reports for a wide range of medical conditions which affect both physical and mental health. She was trained in the holistic assessment of health which focussed on the biopsychosocial factors of health.

Faye had additional training in Mental health which enhanced her skills. She also trained in musculoskeletal conditions which expanded her knowledge. She can confidently complete musculoskeletal observations (MSO) and mental state examinations (MSE) and this allows her to produce in depth, robust and evidence based medical reports. Faye’s skills have been invaluable and easily transferable to Occupational Health. Faye is extremely empathetic in her approach and has an excellent rapport with both employers and employees. Her return to work and rehabilitation has proved to be very successful. She is a credit to our team at ABEL.
