Michelle Hinde

I qualified as an Occupational Therapist 10 years ago, however I have worked in the field of eating disorders for 15 years now, previously working for Syeda as a volunteer, so extremely passionate about the work SYEDA do in offering support to those affected by difficulties with food.

My role at Syeda, along with Claire, is to oversee the clinical support services we provide both in Sheffield and across wider South Yorkshire.  I meet with people who are seeking either support or advice and guidance and carry out assessments as well as having a small caseload for those requiring occupational therapy intervention. I am responsible for supervising and supporting the therapists and volunteers who work with us, providing clinical input into the education and training work we do and helping to shape the development of the organisation.
