I am an experienced and enthusiastic paediatric speech and language therapist, committed to providing therapy that is tailored to suit each individual child's needs.
Having qualified in 2008, I have worked in a number of different settings, more recently as a specialist speech and language therapist for the NHS. I have particular specialisms in speech and language disorders and stammering (I am trained in the Lidcombe Program and Palin PCI therapy approach).
I am a member of the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists (RCSLT), Association of Speech and Language Therapists in Independent Practice (ASLTIP) and I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
I am passionate about working with parents, carers and educational staff to support children's communication skills in their daily lives and achieve their maximum potential. I provide a service within Devon and parts of Cornwall.
I live in Okehampton with my husband and children and enjoy getting out and about in the beautiful Devon countryside, especially Dartmoor!
About Speech and Language Therapy
Speech and language therapy can make a life changing difference for children with a wide range of communication difficulties including;
- Speech Delay/Disorder
- Language Delay/Disorder
- Verbal Dyspraxia
- Specific Language Impairment
- Voice Disorder
- Autism Spectrum Disorder
- Cleft Lip and Palate
- Hearing Impairment
Using specialist skills, speech and language therapists work directly with clients and their carers to provide them with tailored support. They also work closely with educational staff and other health professionals to develop individual treatment programmes.
Speech and language therapy helps increase a child's confidence in communicating, boost their self esteem and reduce their level of frustration.
