Profile

As a Paediatric therapist most of my work is with families within their homes, I enjoy this way of working as it allows me to develop a child’s communication within the context of the relationships within the home and this allows for opportunities for parents, siblings and carers to feel empowered to continue communication work outside of my visits. I am a bubbly and kind professional who is passionate about working with a client and their family to meet their goals and needs.
