I love my job and make both my therapy sessions and communication development classes FUN – it’s the best way to encourage children to learn. But don’t take my word for it; see what some of my previous clients have to say........

On Therapy:

"I wanted to say thank you very much for the really comprehensive assessment and report.....I know that (school) were very impressed with your professionalism and have said that they will recommend you to other parents in the future. Thank you very much again." Eileen - mother of J aged 6

"Thank you for coming to visit us last week...I have been practising some of the methods that you explained and feel much happier that we are giving T the support that he needs...Thank you again for your advice and guidance." Lou - mother of T aged 2 

"I want to thank you so much for doing such a great job on A, so many people have noticed how much her speech has improved and you did such a professional job the way you won her confidence. A has really looked forward to your visits." Camilla - mother of A aged 3.

"Nicola helped our daughter with her speech when she was 4 years old in Reception. Nicola proved to be an exceptional speech therapist – she was at all times professional, effective and efficient but also warm and friendly and so much fun that our daughter looked forward to her sessions with a huge amount of excitement.
Nicola ran the sessions brilliantly, gave useful and comprehensive feedback and always gave very clear instruction on the work we had to do ‘at home’ between sessions. She worked wonders with our daughter and her speech improved dramatically – now 6 years old her teachers are disbelieving that she ever had a speech problem. I would have no hesitation in recommending Nicola and could not rate her highly enough."
Nic – mother of I aged 4

"We have been thrilled with the results after working with Nicky to help our five year old. Always friendly and professional Nicky has provided appropriate therapy and supported us in our role. Most of all we now have a child who can be understood and has the confidence to talk to others in unfamiliar situations, something we could only dream of before." N, Mother of E, aged 5



On Classes:

"Just wanted to say how fantastic your class was on Thursday.  Although J didn't say anything he obviously took it all in as he played being you all day!  I thought that it 'ticked all the boxes' for what I have looked for in a class....Thank you." Eileen - mother of J aged 4

“We have so enjoyed your First Expressions classes.... WE have thoroughly blossomed throughout the past two terms. I say "we" because I too have learned a lot." Mother of M aged 1

“She enjoyed the couple we managed to attend and most definitely reaped huge rewards from them.  Alongside your speech therapy qualifications you are a naturally talented teacher who has a fantastic rapport with children.” Nic – mother of T aged 2.
