My Experience

Post qualification I have worked in a variety of settings within the NHS/Education – health clinics, nurseries, mainstream schools and specialist units.

I developed an interest in childhood speech disorders / dyspraxia quite early on in my career as a speech and language therapist and developed my skills in this area whilst working at the Nuffield Hearing and Speech Centre’s specialist unit in West London.

I was the Speech Disorders Specialist for a local NHS Speech and Language Therapy Service for several years before setting up in full-time independent practice.

I have worked solely as an independent therapist since 2009 and keep my clinical interests up-to-date via attendance at courses, seminars, meetings with other specialist therapists, and reading current research.

I am a member of the Speech Disorders Clinical Excellence Network based in London.

I am a member of the ASLTIP South-West London/Surrey Group.

Areas of Clinical Interest

I have special training in the following areas:

  • Pre-school dysfluency (The Lidcombe Programme, Michael Palin Centre Parent-Child Interaction Therapy)

I offer assessment and therapy sessions in the child’s own home. Sessions may also take place at the child’s nursery/school by arrangement.


I offer a comprehensive assessment of your child’s speech, language and communication skills. Assessment involves a full case history, a combination of formal/informal tests and observation. Assessment sessions usually last between 60-90 minutes and a comprehensive written report is provided on request.


Therapy sessions usually last up to one hour and home practise is encouraged between sessions to ensure carry-over.

Services to Schools/Nurseries

School/nursery visits can be offered by arrangement.

I offer training in these settings on speech, language and communication.

I am able to offer training in Cued Articulation.
