Help your child to communicate?

My word for communication is TRANSFORMATIONAL, I aim to support families and school, understanding Selective Mutism. I want parents to know that they are not alone in raising a child with anxiety.

I am a highly specialist Speech and Language Therapist sharing knowledge about Selective Mutism in my clinic, via YouTube and training.

Foremost I believe in empowering both parents and children to find the strength to overcome life challenges. Selective Mutism has a big impact on the whole family so I created an online course for parents  (soon I will also provide one for schools and therapists).

My mission to help families reflect, resolve, and restart by using the right strategies as well as finding your child’s superpowers, you will see such an amazing change in the child’s self-esteem, and words will start to emerge.

Everyone says that your child is ‘just’ shy but you know that it is more than shyness. You spend time searching and worrying.

As a therapist I support children to communicate and I’d your child speaks freely at home but struggles to do so outside, this is more than shyness.

Your child is on his own in the playground, worried and scared… or happy at home but frozen outside

You’re exhausted and you don’t know where to start

You have tried everything but nothing seems to work or people don’t understand.

So, that's why...

👉 You spend hours searching but you don’t know where to start

👉 Nobody outside the home believes you

👉 Your child is very anxious in many situations

👉 Everyone keeps saying that he/she is shy

👉 “Don’t worry he/she will grow out of it”

👉 “You worry too much” so you start to feel inadequate 

👉At school staff doesn’t know what to do

👉There is no structured plan in place so everyone does their own things using their own strategies, that although they might be the good ones, but there isn’t a TEAM AROUND THE CHILD

👉 It’s been the same story for months. Years even.
