Emma has been a clinical tutor on Lancaster DClinPsy programme for over 10 years and still really enjoys her role helping to train future colleagues. As a clinician Emma has worked in the Lancaster and Morecambe Community Health Team for Adults with a Learning Disability for 17 years. She is passionate about promoting inclusion for people who have a learning disability. This has led to her developing close links with local social enterprise and advocacy groups to get them more involved in the DClinPsy training programme and improve local service provision. Emma likes nothing more to try and challenge "can't do" attitudes and is very proud of the innovations she has been involved in instigating which have led to service improvements and more involvement on the DClinPsy. Emma is also a keen advocate of developing the profession of Clinical Psychology and making training more accessible for people. To this end, Emma has played a key role alongside colleagues in developing the new part time training route at Lancaster.
In her spare time - Emma is a fan of the great outdoors (even in the rain!) and loves getting to grips with her crochet hook and a ball of Herdwick wool.
