My therapeutic approach


Free telephone consultation

The therapy process with begin with a free telephone conversation to discuss your concerns and establish whether I am the right person to help. Any phone conversations are obligation free and 100% confidential.

Assessment

£150


I can assess children from birth to 7 years and this involves discussion with carers, observation of the child and carer in play and sometimes informal/ formal testing using objects, pictures and published materials.

I prefer to see younger children in their usual environment e.g at home but can also see children in school/nursery as necessary.

A first appointment, usually takes 60 to 90 minutes, depending on how quickly the child feels comfortable with a new adult.

At the end of this session, I will discuss my observations and together with parents/carers formulate an action plan. Families are not obliged to move on to therapy with myself and a range of options can be considered including accessing local preschool groups, education or NHS services.

I work with individual children at home or in nursery/school using toys, games pictures and other therapy materials. Individual sessions usually last 30-45 minutes depending on your child’s age or ability and can be weekly/fortnightly depending on your family’s needs. Parents/carers are encouraged to be involved in therapy sessions and complete homework activities demonstrated in order to maximise progress. After 6 sessions, progress is usually reviewed and a new action plan agreed.

I run small groups in nursery/school in order to foster friendships and make communication as fun, interactive and natural as possible. Group sessions usually last 45 minutes and take place weekly for a half term. Early years professionals are encouraged to attend these groups consistently to develop their skills and allow them to reinforce communication goals at other times. After 6 sessions, progress is reviewed and new action plan agreed with parents/carers and education staff.
Longer courses of therapy are available according to your child’s needs.
