ENCOURAGE - EMPOWER - EQUIP
The heart of Brave Development
Occupational Therapy Practice
My name is Chantelle, the heart behind Brave Development. I’m an Occupational Therapist with a passion for people. Ever since I can remember I’ve always known that I’ve wanted work with children and since becoming a mother myself, I’ve also noticed a gap in the provision of holistic post-partum care and adequate support to mothers. Which is a gap that I intend to fulfil. I firmly believe in investing in the next generation and what better way to do so than by better encouraging, equipping and empowering not only our children facing any physical, mental or emotional hinderances or delays but also any parent or person working in the field of education or paediatrics.
It has been quite the journey to get to this point; I formally worked in the physical rehabilitation field, the medico-legal field as well as a Learners with Special Needs School but all roads lead me here. I am excited to bring you along on the journey.
