"I wholeheartedly recommend Helen as an independent SLT having employed her for the initial assessment and ongoing therapeutic needs of my son who has a severe language disorder. Her ability to communicate and assist parents through the process of accepting the diagnosis made a big difference and she has educated us as parents to model , reinforce and underpin her work. Helen is always punctual and ensures that she has followed through on her delivery including reporting and attendance to school meetings. I believe her to be a great find in this area of expertise -having been recommended to me!"

Cian's mum - 3 yr old late talker, Stanmore
 
 
"We are all so grateful to you for helping Steven with his speech difficulty.  He really struggled to say certain sounds before and felt embarrassed by the problem.  Since you saw him for some therapy sessions and gave us a home programme he has not looked back.  We should have contacted you earlier!"
 
 
Steven's mum - 15yr old with speech sound difficulties, Pinner
 
"Sophie has had speech therapy in the past but it was always quite a chore to get her to practise.  Since she has seen Helen she loves the sessions and is always really excited to do her 'speech homework'.  You have made the sessions fun and exciting for her and she is making great progress.  Thankyou"
 
Sophie's mum - 7 yr old with speech sound disorder, Harrow
 
"I just wanted to thank you for the time you gave me earlier to talk about my son's speech difficulties.  Your advice and reassurance was a great comfort to me and I now appreciate that what he is doing is not so unusual.  I know I can contact you if any problems persist in a few months.  Thankyou so much".
 
Oliver's mum - 3 yr old with dysfluent episodes, Shenley
 
"Thank you so much for fitting us in at short notice.  It was great to talk to someone who understood our concerns and we are so grateful for all you have done for Finlay.  You have been a fantastic help and a great support to us.  I know he will make progress now and feel reassured everyone is working together to do the best for our son"
