"Our son is 4 and my husband and I found it incredibly difficult to understand him when he spoke. He was becoming frustrated and angry with everyone at home because we kept misunderstanding him, even when he spoke slowly and repeated himself. I spoke to a couple of friends whose children have speech therapy and they recommended Julia. Julia came to our house for the initial consultation and within the first few minutes had our son chatting away and interested in what she was doing. Since the first session she has visited him every week at nursery and Wow!, our son is speaking perfectly for his age. I understand him first time, as do his teachers and our friends. His confidence has grown massively and he chats away to everyone he meets, which is brilliant to see. I am absolutely amazed with Julia’s work and how quickly she managed to turn our sons speech around. I would highly recommend Julia to everyone - she really is fantastic. Thank you so much Julia."

"We can't thank you enough Penny for all of your hard work and vital support you have given Aman, us as parents, and also the school staff in helping Aman get to where he is now.  He has come a long way since starting his speech therapy 2 years ago.  We are so lucky to have found you and can't recommend you enough to other parents who are considering private speech therapy for their child,  best decision we have ever made!"                                Sharon from Wokingham - August 2019

"I was recommended Julia by 'Marlow parents' for her speech and language support.  My daughter was going through the process of being assessed for her learning difficulties and had been recognised as having a language disorder linked to her difficulties.  However due to a short fall in the NHS SALT services there was a time when the staff were going through a shortage and we were left for a time without this crucial support. I contacted Julia and was so lucky to have her onboard helping Maddie. Her thorough evaluation of Maddie helped not only me to understand her further but also her teachers to be able to provide the right support. Julia was able to visit Maddie in her school environment and home and offer strategies to help develop her communication and understanding. This has allowed Maddie to develop friendships more easily and have fewer melt downs.

Julia's understanding of the EHIC process allowed her reports to be thorough and provide exactly the correct information required.  With all her reports as a parent you are left with a clear strategy to help your child develop further and I would highly recommend Julia for anyone who is worried about their child's language development".

"We met with Julia, she listened and asked questions, she played with Josh and put together a full analysis of how she saw the issues and broke them down into manageable pieces.  She took each issue and provided us with way to help Josh at home in everyday life, even things his brothers could help him with during play.  It was never seen as hard or work in Josh's eyes, all just good fun.  Josh loved seeing Julia and was excited when I told him she would be visiting.  The progress we made was fabulous and Josh is much more confident as a result.  It was hard to watch our son struggle in social situations, so difficult to see him frustrated at not being able to vocalise effectively; this changed as soon as Josh started to work with Julia; I highly recommend the service she provides"

"The feedback from the Teaching Assistants was that it was the best training they had ever had"


"I don't know where we would be now without Julia who was absolutely fabulous.  When Julia met us my son Tom who was 4 had a very bad stammer which he was very aware of and we were all finding very distressing.  She  quickly identified the key issues and came up with simple strategies for us as a family to use to help Tom.  She was incredibly reassuring and kind, Tom loved her and she was always there for me to talk to when things got a bit much.  Tom is now 6 and we are busy practising his lines for his harvest festival assembly.  His speech is fluent, and he is a very confident, bubbly little boy.  If you are in any doubt, give Julia a call, you won't regret it!"


"Julia came to assess my daughter as we had some concerns over her language development. She immediately reassured me with her professionalism, insightful questions and expertise. She was brilliant with the little one and clearly explained to me the situation. Within days of applying Julia's exercises we saw marked improvements."

"Penny is currently working with our 2+ year old son and is brilliant. We highly recommend her. Very professional and great with children. She put our son at ease very quickly."


"Penny is really helpful and my literacy has improved a lot. She understands how to make people better at what they do.  H aged 9

"Emma loves her time with you, Penny, and always asks how long before your next session. We now have a very chatty little girl who is beginning to love entertaining us with her conversations."
