Offering meaningful therapy, strategies and ongoing support to preschool and school aged children and their families
“I believe in early intervention and ongoing therapy input to ensure that children make the most progress possible. I founded So To Speak in 2011 when I lived in London and worked closely with clusters of schools and their staff. Now back in Wiltshire I am enjoying working with families, schools and preschools to provide advice, support and therapy to children that really need it. I am really proud of that local approach; I believe it is essential for creating and maintaining trusted partnerships with schools, parents and children.”

Following graduation from the University of Manchester I worked at the London Children’s Practice in Central London as part of a multidisciplinary team working closely with Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists and Educational Psychologists to deliver assessment as well as individual and group therapy.
Since then, I have worked for the NHS in a number of settings including, East London Foundation Trust, Wiltshire NHS and Oxfordshire NHS Foundation Trust whilst also running So To Speak private practice.
I aim to bring enthusiasm, encouragement and patience to my therapy sessions alongside excellent clinical skills. I live in Cherhill with my husband, two small children and our border terrier called Elliedog.
I am DBS cleared and a member of the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists and the Health Care Professionals Council.
"I love my work, I find it immensely rewarding and enjoy watching the progress children make over time. I believe that every child can reach their true potential with the right support and timely intervention. Supporting the families of each child to develop their own skills to support their child’s communication development is a key part of my approach."
I am able to offer appointments for assessment and therapy in the following places:
I am also able to offer online assessment and therapy for those living further away.
