About Me

I’m a qualified Speech and Language Therapist and have been practicing since 2009 when I graduated from Birmingham City University, UK with a Bsc Hons. I strongly believe that early intervention is key.  I have over 10 years experience working with children up to 19 years old.  I have worked in many settings, including the home environment and schools and nurseries. In my NHS practice I specialised in working with children with special needs.  I have supported parents through gaining a educational health care plan and making appropriate links with the wider multi-disciplinary team.

Since qualifying I have gained further qualifications in Paediatric Dysphagia (eating and drinking difficulties) and I love specialising in this area. I have worked with families of children from birth until adulthood supporting their eating and drinking skills to their full potential.

I have also completed a course for ‘Sleep in Children’ and achieved a level 3 accreditation.  I am a fully aware that sleep significantly influences development and so was keen to gain more knowledge in this area.

And last but by no means least, I am a mum to two toddlers.  I am in awe of watching them grow and develop into little people.   I am constantly amazed by their development of language.  It blows my mind every day. They have taught me a lot in life; but they have especially given me new skills in my speech therapy world.
