Sorcha Dunne

Lecturer In Occupational Therapy

I am an occupational therapist passionate about promoting equitable access to activity participation for all. I'm particularly interested in the benefits of creativity and creative activities on our health and well-being.


Since qualifying as an occupational therapist in 2012, I have worked across a diverse range of settings including the NHS, social services and private practice. My clinical expertise is primarily within neurosciences, with a particular interest in traumatic brain injury rehabilitation. My other interest lies within the use of creativity and creative activities in promoting health and well-being. For this reason, I undertook the MASc in Creative Health at UCL which focuses on co-production and asset-based interventions to improve community health. I moved into higher education in 2023.
