Welcome to Trans Divergence, a private, occupational therapy practice established by Mx Eden Dowers (they/them). This occupational therapy practice is committed to trans-affirming, neurodiverse-affirming, anti-oppressive practice. 

Trans Divergence acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of Country and their enduring sovereignty of land, sea, sky, and community. We bear witness to their diversity and resilience, and honour the Elders past, present, and emerging. The land on which we live, love, and work in physical, digital, and other contexts is stolen land for which Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples’ sovereignty was never ceded.
