As a specialist in thinking and learning differences and an education expert, I provide bespoke support to parents, educators and young people. My approach is skill- and heart- centred (yes, you can have both), restoring joy to life and learning. I work holistically to understand young people, bringing their strengths fully into the light whilst sensitively addressing any barriers to success and happiness.
Whilst I am an independent practitioner I regularly work as part of a multidisciplinary team (MDT) which includes leading clinical psychologists, paediatricians, psychiatrists, occupational therapists and speech and language therapists (amongst others). Depending on what is required, I can tailor the professional team to work around the young person and their family and I often co-ordinate the professional input. This MDT approach is often invaluable and is an integral feature of how I work.
Parents located in the UK and overseas are usually referred to me through their school, their doctor, or other specialist, however they can directly self-refer. Please note that I only take on a very small number of families at a time in order to provide the time and care needed.
What sets me apart is not simply my expertise and experience, or my extensive specialist network, but the level of support that I provide to young people, parents, and educators. It is important to build real relationships, offering specialist expertise and considered action, but also immense compassion and care.
