Working independently has enabled me to balance family life and the work that I love and give me the freedom to keep developing my clinical knowledge and expertise.
I am a Hanen® Certified Speech and Language Therapist - certified to deliver the More Than Words® Programme for parents of children with social communication difficulties and Autism Spectrum Disorders.
I am also PROMPT trained and able to offer PROMPT Therapy to children with motor speech difficulties.
After living and working in South West London for many years, I have recently moved with my family to Farnham, Surrey and restarted my practice in the area.
As well as being a Speech and Language Therapist I am experienced in running Makaton Baby Signing groups, have served as a School Governor, am involved in a local church and married with two primary school-age children.
I qualified as a Speech and Language Therapist in 2005, graduating from the University of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne with a First Class Honours degree in Speech and Language Sciences.
Since graduating I worked for the NHS
Paediatric Speech & Language Therapy
team in Wandsworth, SW London with
pre-school and school-aged children with
a range of speech and language needs in
clinics, homes and schools.
Since 2009 I have worked as a
Highly-Specialist Speech and Language
Therapist for pre-school children with
complex communication needs, including
heading up a team of health and
educational professionals providing
specialist provision for children with social communication difficulties and Autism within a large mainstream nursery school.
I set up my independent practice in 2014 and provide services to young children (1-8 years) with a range of speech, language and communication difficulties.
I am currently providing private Speech and Language Therapy in the Surrey/Hampshire Borders - Farnham, Guildford and the surrounding areas.
My working days are Tuesday,Wednesday and Thursday.
