I am a specialist Speech and Language Therapist with experience working with children from 0-19 to support and develop their Speech, Language and Communication. I am passionate about working with children and families and finding creative therapeutic activities to enhance children’s development. I work holistically, using a Total Communication approach, to ensure that every child can find their own voice, whether that be learning words, developing speech sounds, or looking at alternative ways to communicate with others.

I currently work part-time in the NHS and am trained in Makaton, Nuffield dyspraxia program, Attention Autism, British Sign Language Level 1, and Shape Coding, with experience in intensive interaction, Alternative and Augmentative Communication (AAC), and Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS).

Please get in contact for a free telephone consultation to see if I can support your child’s needs with no obligation to book further assessment on 01293 901815.
