Individual private therapy – bookings not currently available

Unfortunately we are not currently able to offer appointments to individual clients as the team are fully booked providing speech and language therapy services via school contracts and delivering the More Than Words Hanen programme. Should this situation change we will reopen bookings.

For teletherapy assessment, advice and intervention we can recommend Millie Clive. Following nearly 3 years with the Learning Talking team in London, Millie is now based in Spain where she works as an independent speech and language therapist offering sessions to the UK via teletherapy.

Millie can be contacted via

We also recommend that you use to find a list of therapists local to your area.
