About Us

Together, Debbie and Anya have over 24 years experience working within both mainstream, special and higher education, teaching and supporting pupils with a variety of cognitive and behavioural needs.  As education professionals, we can offer a wealth of teaching knowledge and specialist speech, language and communication experience. We truly believe that education should be about creating a love of learning and providing opportunities for children to develop at a pace that suits their ability and learning style. 


As mums ourselves, we recognise children as individuals and above anything, our nurturing approach aims to embed a love of interaction and learning that will ultimately assist your children to gain the confidence and communication skills to better access school and life. 


Anya has also recently embarked upon a lifelong ambition of publishing a series of children's books. Her 'Ollie Discovers' range of fact and fictional stories will soon be linked closely to our narrative interventions. Check out her progress here.
