About Life Through Little Eyes
Welcome to "Life through Little Eyes". I am a Speech & Language Therapist and parent, with an interest in how we communicate with children. What we say to our children becomes who they are, our voice becomes our child's inner voice. Without even knowing it, we give messages to our children around who we want them to be, but as we may have worked out as we've gotten older, being we are is what matters.
My area of specialism as a Speech and Language Therapist is working with children who stammer and their families. Parent - Child Interaction (PCI) is a well evidenced based approach that I use, with its focus being very much on the way we communicate with our child and how this can lessen the impact of the stammer.
So, I have specialist skills in working with children who stammer, but really I work with parents of all children, on how to connect with the communication we use. Whether a child is struggling with their talking or struggling with co-operation or displaying some anxieties, it comes down to connection through communication.
In meeting children in this way, we show children they are worthy and loveable, even when things get tricky or mistakes are made. In doing this we teach resilience and we teach our children how to have trust in themselves.
If you would like to work with me, please do get in touch and we can have a chat, free of charge, about how we can work together.
