Let’s work together
I provide support that will:
- build on your child’s strengths
- increase their confidence
- reduce frustration and
- improve your sense of fun and connection together
I specialise in helping children who are:
- just learning to talk (saying the odd word and need help to say more)
- confused by the social world and need help navigating friendships and playground dramas
I work by:
- assessing your child’s communication skills
- playing and working with your child
- chatting with you about your child’s communication development
- agreeing a plan together and sharing it with your key people
- providing reports that give a clear picture of your child and what we’re working on together
- coaching you with strategies to help them communicate
You can work with me:
- online: 1:1 support packages available for families across the globe
- in person: clinic sessions available in Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight
- outside: play sessions in the park, or group story sessions in the local woodland.
Communication happens everywhere and I want to help you make it happen.
Let’s work together and help your child thrive.
Where do you work?
I run weekly Speech and Language Therapy clinics in Portsmouth and on the Isle of Wight. Home and setting visits are also available where appropriate. I also offer child speech therapy sessions and parent consultation sessions online.
How much does therapy cost?
Prices range from £40 for a half hour SaLT session, to £330 for a formal assessment and report. Get in touch to find out what package is the best fit for you.
How do I know if my child would benefit from Speech and Language Therapy?
The best place to start is to get in touch, so you can tell me a little about your child. We can then discuss your child’s communication skills and whether SaLT sessions is right for them.
What does therapy actually involve?
Therapy looks a little different for every child, depending on their communication skills and our goals for therapy. That said, there are some common themes! Therapy always involves conversation, some play or structured activities and discussion with yourself. Check out what to expect at an initial appointment.
How long does therapy take?
Individual therapy sessions range from 30 minutes to an hour. Some children need only a few sessions to give them a boost (especially if you are doing extra practice at home.) Some children need more time to develop their communication skills. After meeting your child and chatting with you it will be possible to recommend a schedule that suits your needs.
How long do I have to wait to be seen?
Initial appointments are typically available in less than two weeks. Get in touch today and you’ll have a date in your diary in no time.
