We work with children in Liverpool, Cheshire and surrounding areas. We believe children are unique and gifted in so many different ways, but those talents can sometimes be locked due to individual challenges. Our primary aim is to work with the child and family to provide the key.

Kathryn Alexander, Occupational Therapist, Director
BSc (Hons) Occupational Therapy, PG Cert Ayres Sensory Integration and advanced practitioner
Hello, I’m Kathryn and qualified as an occupational therapist in 2000 from the University of Liverpool. Since then I have worked with children in the NHS in a range of clinics, schools and homes. In 2011 I set up Mosaic Children’s Therapy Centre so I could focus on my passion of sensory integration therapy. I completed modules with Sensory Integration Network (now Sensory Integration Education) to module 4, in 2014. I have since completed further training with ASI WISE.
Sarah Chierico, Occupational Therapist, Director
BSc Occupational Therapy. M.Chem (Medicinal Chemistry with Spanish), PG Cert (TESOL).
Hello, I’m Sarah, a recently qualified occupational therapist, wife and mum of 2. My passion with OT and sensory integration started in 2012 when I was looking for support for my son. As an autistic adult and parent to 2 wonderful autistic young people I have a significant amount of lived experience of neurodiversity and this has been a key driver in my personal and professional development. I strongly believe in supporting families and parents to achieve the best outcomes through education and training, and also work as community development worker with Liverpool’s Neurodevelopmental diagnostic pathway. My areas of special interest interest include neuroscience, Ayres’ Sensory Integration and sensory based eating difficulties. I also love food especially chocolate, swimming, watching old episodes of Star trek and long walks with my cute beagle puppy Pumpkin.
