​I am a Specialist Speech and Language Therapist and Co- founder of Let's Verbalise Independent Speech & Language Therapy Practice. I have years of experience working with young people with a range of speech, language and communication needs.

My specialism is with young people with Autistic Spectrum Condition including Pathological Demand Avoidance and Social, Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties and have a special interest in interventions to promote the development of  social communication and interaction. 

I feel that it is important to take a holistic view of the young person to ensure therapy is client-centred and  above all FUN!

I am a Specialist Speech and Language Therapist  and Co-director of Let's Verbalise. I have substantial experience helping children of all ages with their speech, language and communication skills.

I work with a comprehensive range of conditions and my specialisms include Autistic Spectrum Condition, Developmental Language Disorder, and Speech Sound difficulties.

I regularly liaise with other multidisciplinary professionals, predominantly within an educational setting and consider liaison encourages generalisation of skills.

I am skilled in a range of therapies and fundamentally believe sessions should be personalised, interactive and enjoyable.
