I am a Consultant Speech and Language Therapist who has been working in the sector since 2006 and qualifying with a MSc in Speech and Language Therapy in 2015. I am a registered member of the following:

Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists
Health and Care Professionals Council
Association of Speech and Language Therapists in Independent Practice

I have worked in a variety of mainstream and specialist settings with children and young people as part of the NHS and also privately. My clinical specialism is Autism, Developmental Language Disorder (DLD) and speech sound difficulties/disorders. I set up North Essex Speech Therapy in 2017 with a team of speech and language therapists and assistants providing an independent speech and language provision across Essex, Suffolk and Cambridge. We pride ourselves n providing client centred care and supporting families and education staff. I also work with Clinical Psychologists using the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS 2) and Autism Diagnostic Interview – Reviewed (ADI-R) to assess and diagnose Autism.

My post qualifications include ADOS-2, ADI-r, Expert Witness Training (Bond Solon), Makaton, Speech Sound Disorders, Cued Articulation, Elklan TTP.

Growing up with a father who stammered, speech and language has always been a huge passion in my life. I am very privileged to have worked with some longstanding schools and families to enable me to see the progress of intervention with clients and the impact of that on their lives.

I work with schools/families, ADOS clinics and also provide Expert Witness/Education Tribunal Assessments.
