Whatever brings you to Speech and Language Therapy I will give you my undivided, individualised attention and I am looking forward to guiding you along the journey, supporting your child and helping him or her to thrive.

Much of our work together can be carried out successfully via on-line sessions.  This allows you to remain in the comfort of your own home whilst working with me.   Gone are the days when you needed to stress and take your child across town to a clinic, arriving a bit late and frazzled!  

However, I am also happy to home-visit for an assessment or do nursery/school visits for reviewing progress or attending a meeting.  Additionally I offer appointments in my  clinic in Willesden Green.

“When my son was first diagnosed with autism my world fell apart and I did not know who to turn to for help.  Sonja [McGeachie, practice owner] was a big help in my journey of coming to terms with the diagnosis and she taught me step by step how to help Ben interact with us.  Ben is now saying a few words... He has less temper tantrums when we use the strategies Sonja gave us.  

Sonja goes the extra mile, she is great at supporting us directly in the sessions but is also generous with advice if we need it in between the sessions. I highly recommend Sonja to anyone who needs help with speech and language therapy.”
