Debbie England BSc. (Hons)


I qualified with a BSc degree in Occupational Therapy from Canterbury and Christchurch University College in 2004. Previously to this, I trained as a nursery nurse, working in a private day nursery.


After initially completing a rotational post in general medicine, I worked as the lead OT for the Promoting Independence Team for Social Services.


From 2007 and before joining Dyspraxia UK in 2016, I worked for a Paediatric Occupational Therapy service in the NHS, providing therapy for children within mainstream and special schools, for children aged from birth to 19 years of age and worked as the Team Lead for the Mainstream Schools Service.


I have worked in Private Practice since 2009, helping children and adults to develop their independence skills and motor coordination, alongside working in the NHS, ensuring that I provide a gold standard service for the families who I work with. I provide assessment of people’s day-to-day function including issues with sensory processing, emotional regulation, dyspraxia/motor coordination difficulties and executive functioning problems. I enjoy helping individuals to reach their full potential, establishing new habits and strategies to make life feel more manageable and in control.


I sat on the CYPF (Children, Young Person and Families) special interest group as the Regional Representative, and contributed to the expert panel for the publication ‘My Child and Me’, a lifestyle magazine for parents of children with additional needs. I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) as well as the British Association of Occupational Therapy and a member of the National Handwriting Association (NHA).


In 2016, I completed advanced training in Dyspraxia assessment and treatment approaches with Dyspraxia UK. Additionally, I have completed postgraduate training in SOS Approach to Feeding, Picky Eaters or Problem Feeders, Primitive Reflex Training for Therapists, School AMPS, ensuring that I maintain current and up to date in my knowledge base.


I have been applying Sensory Integration approaches to my therapy intervention since doing further training in 2008.


I am passionate about helping adults, children and their families and look forward to meeting you!
