Mrs Emma Hirst

Mrs Emma Hirst

Hand Therapist

Community sits at the heart of my ethos, and it’s this sense of community that inspired me to open our Airport Oaks clinic. As a South Auckland girl, born and raised, I wanted to give my own community easier access to professional, specialised hand therapy locally. As a busy mum with two young children and business owner, I know how important it is to be able to do every day tasks, like picking up your child or grandchild, playing your favourite sport, or simply just being able to do your own hair - or the housework! I love working with everyone - kids, athletes, weekend warriors and local professionals - to help them get back to doing whatever it is that makes their own lives feel fulfilled. I have extensive experience, having graduated from AUT in 2002 with a Bachelor of Health Science (Occupational Therapy), worked in Paediatrics, Vocational Rehabilitation and Burns and Surgical wards, before later moving into private practice in 2008 and completing my Post Graduate Diploma in Rehabilitation in 2015. And while you can be confident you’ll get professional, expert treatment, my patients also feel at ease with my easy going nature - we’ll have a laugh, chat about the Warriors score or compare gardening tips! » View details

Miss Jade Westrupp

Miss Jade Westrupp

Hand Therapist

As someone who loves a challenge, the opportunity to work in a specialised environment, surrounded by equally passionate people, is what gets me excited about coming to work every day. I also love that I get to meet a diverse range of people from all walks of life. Each has their own story, and each has their own motivation for getting back to whatever it is that is most important to them, post injury. I enjoy helping people and get a genuine sense of satisfaction knowing I have had a part to play in their road to recovery. A big part of this comes down to really listening to you, understanding your goals and your lifestyle, and tailoring your care to best suit you. I completed a Bachelor of Health Science in occupational therapy from AUT in 2015. My new graduate year was spent working at North Shore Hospital in general medicine and orthopedic and trauma wards. Then, in 2017, I spent a year on the Auckland DHB rotation providing rehabilitation in the community, before completing a year in orthogeriatric rehabilitation, and some time as an occupational therapist in the Emergency Department. In 2020 I’ll be undertaking a post graduate diploma. I enjoy life on the go. Whether it’s an early morning gym class, catching up with friends, planning an adventure or enjoying a meal with friends and family. Working with me, you can trust you’ll receive knowledgeable treatment, delivered with reassurance, kindness - and a few laughs » View details

Mrs Laura Lyons

Mrs Laura Lyons

Hand Therapist

I know that every patient who comes through our clinic door has their own story. That’s what I love about my job - meeting people from all walks of life and understanding what matters most to them so I can help them get back to doing what it is they love. This comes down to really listening, and taking into account every aspect of their lifestyle in their healing process. It goes without saying that as we go through this journey, I really get to know my patients. I know it’s important to make it comfortable, enjoyable and fun. You can count on me to break the ice with an inappropriate joke if necessary. I graduated as a physiotherapist from AUT in 2010, going on to work at Sydney’s Royal North Shore Hospital. Early in my career I developed a love for treating trauma, burns, orthopaedics and neurological rehabilitation. Returning to NZ in 2013, I began my career in Hand Therapy, going on to complete my Postgraduate Certificate. Being active, running around after my three kids, good coffee, and enjoying the North Shore lifestyle are all things that I love. I’m proud to be in partnership with colleagues who are passionate about the work we do, and love that I can help others reach their full potential post-injury in a fun, flexible and more personal way. » View details
