Sensory Stories # 77: Personal space throughout my career

Posted: 10 March, 2023

By: Marieta du Toit


This week, we are continuing the conversation on personal space. In this video I give you a little glimpse into my career to illustrate how an understanding of “personal space” can play a big role in your working environment. I started my career as a paediatric occupational therapist, later working for myself, for a school and finally landing here at Sensory Intelligence®. Throughout each stage of my career, I faced challenges in the respective working environment as a sensory root – a sensory avoider. Watch the video to learn more about this and to gain some valuable insight into personal space and sensory thresholds.
