"Working independently as a Therapist will enable you to work
in a way that gives you maximum energy to use your
considerable skills, knowledge and talents."
"I have always valued your support both professionally
and personally. You always go out of your way to help children
and their families get the support they need."
"A big Thank you for your help and expertise.
You have done a fantastic job and helped a lot of children."
"We only worked together for a short time, but I was inspired
by your professional approach. I feel you thoroughly assess the
child’s individual needs and are prepared to 'tell it like it is.'"
"We believe that it is primarily due to Victoria's help that our
daughter has improved from being virtually incomprehensible
to speaking clearly and confidently. We would highly
recommend Victoria to other families seeking high quality
expert speech therapy."
"Victoria has forged a strong professional relationship with our
child and has produced varied and enjoyable age-appropriate
games. As a result our child has remained highly motivated
and looks forward to speech therapy sessions."
"Thank you for sending reports so quickly to us, fitting us in at
such short notice and for your professionalism."
"Victoria has provided us with invaluable skills, support and
encouragement to help us help our son unlock his speech delay.
Every day it is more and more joyful to interact with him
and we never would have achieved this without
her wonderful guidance. We will be eternally grateful."
"Thank you Victoria; it's lovely to hear our daughter sing and tell us her ideas and dreams! And it's thanks to you and her hard work that she can now talk to everyone. This has opened the world for her."
"We are just so grateful for all of your support both personally and professionally. It has quite simply made such a difference. Our son is doing really really well and to be honest we forget that there was ever an issue. For our son he is as happy as ever, but it's great to see him build friendships with children his own age now."
"Victoria immediately developed the trust and confidence of our son, aged 6. As a result he listened, understood and learnt very quickly.
With concerns over stammering from an early stage, Victoria provided reassurance as well as practical training and homework for parents and child, resulting in rapid progress.
Victoria has a great learning environment and it was fun to attend an appointment which was one of our priorities when choosing a suitable therapist."
"Thank you so much for all of your help with our son. When the Nursery recommended you, we were both getting very worried that our son was showing no real sign of talking. From the start you made him comfortable, and the reassurance and advice you gave me as a parent allowed me to be more confident in helping him.
The progress he has made in under three months is outstanding; he is now using words every day and trying new ones all the time. For the first time in a long time I feel relaxed that my son will soon be communicating effectively. The help you have given us by recommending our son for the Specialist Language Nursery back with the NHS has been really appreciated as we found that process very difficult, and just listening to us (me) and knowing we had someone on our side was invaluable.
I can promise one thing, if our son is not improving by Christmas, then we will be contacting you again."
"In 2010 it was brought to our attention that our three year-old son had delayed speech. We brought our son to see Victoria for a total of 5 sessions.
Each time we found Victoria extremely informative and supportive. She explored all relative facets that could influence poor communication (e.g. one of the factors underlying our son's speech delay was poor attention span) and was then able to focus on this and explore ways to lengthen his attention span, in partnership with us. He is now approaching five and we are happy to say he is enjoying school and communicating with his peers.
This has had such a positive impact on our family and we now enjoy conversations with our son. We recommend Victoria highly, to any parent whose child is struggling with communication."
