About my practice
BSc (Hons) Speech and Language Therapy
I am a qualified and CORU-certified Speech and Language Therapist. I qualified in 2002 and have worked in public health systems, primary and secondary schools and the private sector in the UK, Barbados and Ireland. I absolutely love my work and bring bundles of enthusiasm to every session. I am really positive and encouraging person. I place great importance on providing effective therapy whilst building up confidence and having lots of fun. My clinic is usually based in my home, but I have made changes to the way I work to keep everyone as safe as possible. I have set up a green screen station and invested in equipment for online therapy sessions. I have been exploring all the fun ways to use green screen animations in my assessment and therapy activities.   I provide a really personal service, and will go to great efforts to include special interests into therapy activities. For kids, I have made activities with everything from Peppa, Paw Patrol and Pokemon to Jurassic Park and Minecraft! It's important that the young people I see are engaged and excited to be working with me because learning becomes a joy for everyone. For teens and adults, I am respectful and friendly. I will help you achieve your goals and keep it fun and interesting for you!   Speech and Language Therapy is very broad and we work with people of different ages with many different needs. In my ongoing professional study, I have specialised in:  Stammering (also known as stuttering) Speech sound difficulties including delayed speech sounds, speech sound disorders, lisps, dyspraxia and CAS [childhood apraxia of speech]   I love reading stories to children and run regular baby book club groups and story times for local libraries.  In my spare time, I love to bake and hang out with my family. We also have a dog, two cats and eight hens. I am trying to learn how to garden and I am a (slow!) member of the local triathlon club. 
Most of my sessions continue to be online however I am using my garden for an outdoor therapy space during the Summer. The outdoor space is suitable for school-aged children and up only. My online service has grown over the past year which allows me to provide a specialist service around the country! Please get in touch by email to discuss your referral.
