Therapy

I offer child and family therapy and see children and young people with their parents as well as individually. I also see parents for couple therapy or individual therapy to help them overcome specific challenges or help them to continue to support their child(ren).

I believe that parents are experts in their child(ren) and that children and young people are experts in their own bodies and what is right for them. That is why I will always work towards understanding you and your family and adapt therapy to fit your unique needs.

Educational & Learning Assessments

IQ, Learning Difficulties & Social Communication

I offer cognitive and developmental assessments to understand your child's strengths and weaknesses from an intellectual and academic point of view. I have knowledge and expertise in using  psychometric tests, standardised assessments and individually designed assessments to understand what helps your child learn best.

 

This may include the assessment, understanding and support for learning difficulties such as Dyslexia, ADHD and learning disabilities. I offer individual assessments for children and support and resources for schools and families.

I am also trained and experienced in the assessment of social communication difficulties including Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and offer screening, family support and liaison with school.

Consultation & Training for Professionals

Consultations are time-efficient and effective ways of working with individual children in the classroom, setting practical tools in place that can support your work long-term.

 

I offer consultation to schools and nurseries on a one-off basis and yearly contract basis. My consultation package offers the opportunity to discuss individual difficulties and classroom issues and to problem-solve them with a whole school/nursery approach in mind. 

I will take the time to get to know your school ethos and your preferred ways of working. Consultations typically take place at school/nursery at a time that fits with you and your staff and run for 2 hours. A brief summary of action points is sent the next day with any further follow-up consultations and next steps.

When you book a consultation you will have access to my years of experience working with schools and children and families as well as access to practical tools and resources.
