I graduated with a BSc (Hons) Speech and Language Therapy from the University of Wales Institute, Cardiff in 2002.I have worked in the UK, Barbados and Ireland in the NHS, HSE, St John of God services and in private practice. I have extensive experience working with both children and teenagers. My clinical experience extends to clients with the following areas of need: early speech and language development, speech sounds, phonological awareness, cleft lip/palate, literacy and stammering.
I am dedicated to ongoing learning so that I am up-to-date with current best practice and clinical knowledge. I have completed postgraduate training in a variety of areas including: Hanen It Takes Two To Talk, Caroline Bowen's Clear Speech, Michael Palin Centre Approach to Stammering Intervention, Solution Focused Brief Therapy for Children and Adolescents, DIR Floortime, Dynamic Temporal Tactile Cueing for Suspected/Diagnosed Childhood Apraxia of Speech and the Alex Kelly Social Skills course.
I have volunteered as an adult literacy tutor with Longford VEC and have a keen interest in literacy, reading and story-time. I run story-time sessions with toddlers, pre-school and school-age children in local libraries with a view to encouraging reading and literacy development.
I work from my home and offer a child-friendly and homely environment. I currently have availability on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. After-school and evening appointments are also available.
