Emma West

I have a very rare disability called Kniest Syndrome which means I'm 4ft tall and all of my joints are enlarged and pretty inflexible. Because it affects my mobility I use a mobility scooter when out and about. I have several jobs - I'm an Online Counsellor (www.emmawestcounselling.co.uk) counselling people via video, text and email, I sit on disability benefit [PIP, DLA, AA] tribunals as a Disability Qualified Member, and I am a freelance writer. I live in Devon with my husband, two teenage sons, and two dogs. I love to go out for walks, enjoy cooking, going out for meals, wildlife/animals, psychology, and travel.
