I’m a Highly Specialist Speech and Language Therapist, based in Essex.
I have extensive experience working with children with speech, language and communication needs in a range of settings including schools, preschools and clinics.
I'm also mum to two primary school-aged children, one of whom has special needs. Both of my children ‘help’ in some of my course videos, allowing me to demonstrate how to use activities to work on specific targets, modifying and differentiating for varying ages, motivations and abilities.
I set up my own clinical service provision in 2011 and have since then built up a successful practice, with my own clinic where I see private patients. I also provide a regular service to a number of schools in my local geographical area.
I’ve worked with lots of practitioners and staff in schools and preschools throughout my career and I've provided a lot of information, advice, training and support for a variety of Speech and Language topics.
As well as training education staff, I also deliver seminars as a guest lecturer to Speech and Language Therapy Students at the University of Essex. These cover a range of topics, including service provision, speech sounds, stammering, vocabulary and word finding, assessment and intervention.
I have a master’s degree in Health and Human Sciences (MSc), qualifying as a Speech & Language Therapist in 2009. My undergraduate degree (BA Hons) is in Linguistics and Spanish.
I’m registered with the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists, the Health and Care Professionals Council and the Association of Speech and Language Therapists in Independent Practice (ASLTIP).
