About Speech & Language Therapy

Specialising in Speech and Language Therapy for children and young people

I am a Speech and Language Therapist with fourteen years of experience. I qualified in 2006 at City University, London and have since worked in clinic, school, hospital and nursery settings. In 2014 I set up Dulwich Speech and Language Therapy providing Speech and Language Therapy services including assessments, nursery and school screenings, and individual and group sessions. Targeted therapy work can include social skills, stammering, language difficulties and speech sound difficulties. Currently, as well as providing Speech and Language Therapy services for schools across London, I also work closely with Cavendish Education, both as a Speech and Language Therapist and Consultant. I joined CDC.London in 2016.

My broad ranging experience includes working with children with autistic spectrum disorder, specific language impairment, dyslexia, dyscalculia, auditory processing disorder, phonological and speech sound difficulties, as well as younger children with delayed communication skills.

 In addition to my work with children and young people, I also run training sessions for parents and teachers on a range of topics such as  early language development, bilingualism, and self-care for neurodiverse teenagers. I have worked with Studio Hansa on a short film for the BBC’s Tiny Happy People and consulted for the bestselling book by Dr Adam Rutherford, ‘The Book of Humans’. I am currently working on a podcast series with Jessica Narowlansky in which we will interview fellow professionals across a range of disciplines. This series is primarily for parents and carers at the beginning of the SEN journey and aims to provide them with knowledge of the SEN world.

My aim is for all children to be effective independent communicators and my job is to break down barriers in order for each child to achieve their full communicative potential.
