My Clinical Practice

Alongside working in private practice, I am currently employed in the NHS as a specialist speech and language therapist in Children’s and Young People’s (CYP) services and have over 7 years experience working with and supporting children with an autism diagnosis and/or social communication differences.

My NHS role involves assessing and supporting a range of speech, language and communication needs including speech sound disorders, developmental language disorder (DLD) and selective mutism. I also work with families and young people across Child and Adolescent Mental Heath Services (CAMHS) whereby I specialise in neurodevelopmental assessment and diagnosis of a variety of conditions including autism, ADHD & DLD as well as providing post diagnostic support to families and young people. 

I can provide comprehensive speech and language assessments as well as administer the ADOS-2 as part of autism assessment and diagnosis. I am certified in Talking Mats and have experience using a range of evidence based interventions, therapy approaches and supports specific to speech, language and social communication. 

I am also trained in delivering a variety of parent programmes including Hanen More Than Words, as well as experience delivering training to education to support language and communication development and implementation of environmental classroom strategies for neurodivergent children and young people.

My Therapeutic Approach

I am passionate about helping every young person meet their potential by creating supportive environments to develop speech, language and communication skills. For those with neurodevelopmental differences, I take a neuroaffirming approach to practice, ensuring the team around the CYP are equipped with the knowledge and strategies to create an adaptive environment that allows children and young people to thrive.


My work is driven by a range of evidence based practices but I tailor my approach to the needs of the families and young people and adopt a client-centred, collaborative approach to all of my clinical work.
