Jessamy Boydell is the founder of Arm's Reach Occupational Therapy (AROT). Jessamy graduated with a Masters of Science in Occupational Therapy in 2008. She has specialised in the field of stroke and neurological Occupational Therapy since 2010, both as a private practitioner and for the NHS across the stroke pathway in London and Bristol. She has also worked with people with long term neurological conditions and Traumatic Brain Injury in the community. Jessamy is a registered member of the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), the Royal College of Occupational Therapists (RCOT), and the RCOT Specialist Sections - Neurological Practice and Independent Practice. 


After completing training by Harrison Training, Jessamy set-up and ran a Constraint Induced Movement Therapy (CIMT) programme in 2018 for people living in the Bristol community. Through this experience, the need for a dedicated post-stroke upper limb service became very clear and AROT was founded. 


Jessamy sees the long challenging road people face during  post-stroke rehabilitation. She believes hard work, education, perseverance and motivation are key in recovery. Jessamy has first-hand experience in providing a therapy environment which promotes these qualities, supporting people to explore and maximise their own recovery potential.
