How private speech therapy works

You can make an initial enquiry by email or by calling me on 02380 00 55 77.

I will get back to you for a no obligation discussion to understand your child’s speech and language needs and your concerns.

Following this, if you choose to book an initial assessment for your child, I offer weekday and weekend appointments at my clinic in Whiteley. I understand how busy family life is and have an online booking system to make it easier for you to find a convenient time.

Initial assessment appointment – £130

At the initial assessment I will assess your child’s speech and language skills and will take a case history to gain background knowledge of your child’s development.

I will then offer you further advice, if appropriate will recommend a course of therapy and will write a short report based on information taken at the assessment.

If therapy is appropriate, we will agree the most appropriate frequency for your child and your circumstances.

Therapy sessions – £65

Therapy sessions are approximately 45 minutes long and this will usually include 30 minutes of direct therapy with your child (or in some cases with parents) and 15 minutes of discussion with parents.

I set targets for your child at the first therapy session and regularly review and update these so we can track progress and adjust the frequency of therapy sessions as needed.

Between sessions

You work with your child using activities and resources I give you.

You can contact me by phone or by email if you need advice between appointments.

If your child is also seeing an NHS therapist, I liaise with them regularly to ensure joined-up working.
