I qualified as a speech and language therapist in October 2008. I worked for the NHS for over 7 years, primarily in community clinics for preschool children. I have also worked as part of a nursery service providing training to nursery staff and at a school for children with hearing impairments.

I am the mum of two small boys and feel this enhances my work in a number of ways, not least in giving me a good knowledge of current children's interests and obsessions.

I am passionate about working with families, empowering parents/carers to help develop their own children's communication skills. I am very lucky that I do a job where I still get to 'play' and although we will always be working towards specific targets, using proven therapy techniques, our work together will always feel like play to your child.
