About my practice
Clinical Speech and Language Studies Trinity College Dublin B.Sc

Kidd Talk's mission is to support a communication friendly world. I now provide a nationwide service using online platforms. In light of Covid-19 restrictions, all in person sessions at my Waterford city and Gorey clinics are on hold.

 

I provide individualised assessment and therapy programmes to children aged 2-12 in the areas of speech, stammering and language development. My main areas of expertise include: stammering, early language 0-3, speech delay/disorder and developmental language disorder. 

What makes Kidd Talk different is the emphasis on parents and practical change.  I work in partnership with parents.  I coach parents in all therapy techniques using my training in Solution Focused Brief Therapy. The feedback I have received from parents mainly tells me that  parents feel more confident about making real change happen between sessions.  

I really enjoy working with children and their supporters and helping to relieve some of the stress and confusion that parents often feel when their child is having a difficulty. I have received specialist training in Solution Focused Brief Therapy, stammering (avoidance reduction) therapy and early language 0-3. 

 

I am a private speech and language therapist with two clinics for the south-east area. In light of Covid-19 restrictions, all sessions are now provided online.  

Waterford Clinic:  This clinic is based in Boxworks, Waterford  city. 

 

Wexford Clinic:  This clinic is located 10 minutes from Gorey town. 

It's important for me to link in with schools and preschools so that a child's communication support plan is consistent in all their major life areas.  School visits are available on request.
