Sharon Curtis


Tactyc, Founder of Emosi


I am the Vice-chair of Tactyc and also the Centre Manager of Ellesmere Children’s Centre, founder of Emosi, Sheffield’s only purpose-built transcultural therapy centre aimed at giving children with emotional and behavioural challenges the very best start in life. Emosi is a safe place where children can engage in creative therapies and a place for families and children to work together to develop positive lasting relationships. Young children are navigating difficult emotions, particularly since the start of the pandemic. Transcultural therapeutic services have been developed to acknowledge nuanced differences and to define the need to provide a service for the unique child. My personal interest is ensuring that we promote anti-racist ways of working in the early years including the promotion of cultural competencies. Inclusive of issues of race and by recognising and celebrating that we are different! I completed my doctorate in 2014 exploring black women leaders in early years education. I am particularly passionate about those who do lead and use their cultural insights effectively.
