"I have been interested in people for as long as I can remember and have been lucky enough to find my ideal job as a Speech & Language Therapist. Working for over 20 years has given me a vast range of experiences working with children with all sorts of speech language and communication difficulties from early language delay to speech sound difficulties to Autism Spectrum Disorder with Specific Language Impairment and Dyspraxia along the way."
Ellen has vast experience with all things 'speechy' and is a great character, making learning fun. We've bought Ellen on board because of these things as well as her long list of specialities, below.
Attention & Listening
Early Language Skills
Speech Sounds & Dyspraxia
Non-verbal ways to communicate
Ellen is also very experienced in training for parents, and professionals.
"Ellen was really professional, friendly and caring, she was really kind and knowledgable. I'd definitely see her again, but because of how good she was, I don't think I'll need to anytime soon." - Parent from Ipswich.

Counselling is a type of talking therapy that allows a person to talk about their problems and feelings in a confidential and dependable environment. A counsellor is trained to listen with empathy (by putting themselves in your shoes). They can help you deal with any negative thoughts and feelings you have.
Ligia is a qualified Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist and a member of BACP.She is a caring person who strongly believes that human beings have the capacity to change and heal themselves; but that sometimes we still need professional support. She works with different approaches and applies them focused on each individual’s needs, as everybody is different and what suits one person might not suit another.She believes the relationship between the client and the therapist is very important to the therapy process.
She is currently available to work with those aged 18 upwards in the areas of depression, anxiety, self-harm, trauma, abuse, addiction and bereavement.
Ligia shows great empathy when working and we are very pleased to have her available to provide support for our families and individuals.
"I recommend Ligia as a Counsellor as she was able to fully assess my problems and offered suitable therapy methods that met my needs. Ligia is very patient and understands how to establish needs and wants of a patient. The therapy sessions I have had with Ligia helped me understand myself better and achieve a better state of well-being." - Parent from Ipswich.
