ABOUT ME

It has been a pleasure to work with children, teenagers and adults in a range of settings throughout my career as a Speech and Language Therapist. This has enabled me to easily adapt my therapy style accordingly and develop a range of speech therapy tools that are research and evidence based. I have two children of my own, which has given me a valuable insight into the pressures and the stresses of ensuring that your children reach their full potential, and receive appropriate support for their educational and emotional needs.
