About Me


I achieved my degree in Speech and Language Pathology and Therapeutics in 1989 and specialised in paediatrics immediately. I have worked with a broad range of paediatric communication disorders across two separate NHS Trusts, and have worked privately for 14 years.


About the children I see


  • I work with children of all ages from pre-school aged children in nurseries or at home, to students taking GCSE examinations.


  • I work with a wide range of speech, language and communication difficulties but I have a particular interest in working with children with specific speech and language disorders and with children who stammer.


  • I am qualified to deliver The Lidcombe Program of Early Stuttering Intervention. I am also trained in the Palin PCI approach for early childhood stammering.


About my work


I cover areas of South West and Central Birmingham, and can offer appointments in your home or in your child's school or nursery. I can offer a one-off assessment and advice appointment, one-to-one therapy sessions and advice and training for nurseries and schools.

As a professional working with children and vulnerable people, I am able to provide evidence of a recent Criminal Records Bureau check.
