How I can help you
I offer structured and bespoke assessments, practical and personalised support, advice, training and consultancy in response to your and your child’s needs.
Speech and Oral Motor Difficulties
If your child has trouble controlling lips, tongue or jaw muscles, - from talking to eating or sipping from a straw — these are tough skills to master and I can help your child develop these skills. Your little one has a lisp or a 'funny r-sound’? With a little time and practice we can make it better!
Is your child late in talking and struggling to communicate or making friends? Maybe he or she is not able to tell you their needs without a tantrum and tears? Perhaps your little one doesn't speak at all or he/she repeats words or sentences you say ? I am able to clarify for you what the issues are, what might be causing them and how to help you help your child.
What parents have said
“We are extremely happy and wanted to let you know, as I don’t think we’d have seen anywhere near such a rapid improvement without your help. It’s made a huge difference and I’m still using all the strategies you taught me all the time with him… I’m so thankful we found you and I can’t actually believe he’s caught up on more than a year delay in less than 6 months.”

“Sonja is a very good and committed professional. She is always enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I am so glad to have found her. She came to assist Christian with eating and drinking issues. Quickly we got on with all the new recommendations she gave us. In a few weeks time he got to do most of the things expected for his age. We are all really pleased with Sonja’s support. I really recommend her.”
Mother of Christian (14 months)
“Sonja helped my 7 year old daughter with a well established lisp and tongue thrust and after only a couple of sessions we noticed a big improvement and she has been progressing well ever since. Sonja is kind, funny and makes the speech therapy a pleasure - my daughter has been happy to go to each session and even to do all the practice in between. Thank you Sonja!”
