Hanen Group Therapy Courses:

  • As a 'Hanen' trained therapist I can offer several of the Hanen courses for parents and Early Years Practitioners.  These group sessions offer a cost effective way of receiving a high level of speech and language therapy support. If a Hanen course is appropriate for you and your child these will be offered as an option for your consideration.  To find out more about Hanen and the courses on offer please see the 'Hanen' section of the website.​


  • Initial assessment: consisting of an initial phone consultation, a detailed case history, video analysis of your child's communication skills and feedback session with parents.  For older children direct assessment may also be possible on line.

  • A range of direct therapy is possible for children who are able to attend to the sessions online, support for stammering works particularly well online, both the Lidcombe programme and Palin PCI, as well as support packages for older children and teens, can be offered this way.

  • For younger children I am pleased to be able to offer the Hanen programmes 'it takes two to talk' (for children with language delay / disorders) and 'more than words' (for children with social communication difficulties) via teletherapy.  These sessions do not directly involve your child so you don't have to worry if they are not a 'facetime fan.'  These sessions can be offered in the evening if preferable, to allow both parents to join in /enable you to focus without your child needing you.

  • Prices for teletherapy are the same as face to face appointments: £125 for an initial assessment and £60 per 45 minute therapy session.


  • No charge for journeys within 5 miles of my base (Chipping Sodbury)

  • For journeys over a 10 mile round trip, a charge of £2.50p per additional mile will be added to the cost of the session to cover travel time and expenses.

  • Journeys will be planned using 'aa route planner' from BS37 6HG and mileage costs agreed before the session.
