Emma is a late identified neurodivergent Occupational Therapist, registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the Royal College of Occupational Therapists (RCOT).


She has been an Occupational Therapist for over ten years and prior to this she worked as a primary school teacher. Having worked both in the NHS, the private sector and for charities her experience has spanned across the age ranges and has included neurodiversity identification most recently in an NHS neurodevelopmental service for children and young people.


Emma is passionate about working with individuals to help with the identification process from a collaborative based approach with the person at the centre and their families or important people in their lives where they are available.


Emma has a keen interest in both evidence-based practice as well as practice-based evidence and in addition to her MSc in Occupational Therapy she is currently undertaking a MEd in Autism at the University of Strathclyde. Emma has also studied Sensory Integration Education through the University of Ulster as well as practice based specialist courses including topics such as ‘ADHD’, ‘Trauma’, ‘Sleep’, ‘Developmental Coordination Disorder’(DCD), ‘Hypermobility’ and ‘Handwriting’, amongst others.


Emma aims to provide an affirming and supportive service underpinned by the perspective that being neurodivergent is a natural form of human variation and is not a disease or illness that needs to be fixed.


Outside of work Emma loves animals and enjoys spending time with her dog Coco going for nice walks or runs with him. She also loves spending time with her family, listening to music and DIY.
