  • Hello.  My name is Angela. I was a nurse and midwife for many years before giving birth to my son in 2007.  It has been a delight – seeing him grow and develop.  But at the age of 8 there was a hiccup – when he was diagnosed with dyslexia. My husband’s reaction was to panic and go into denial.  My reaction was to research.  And one of the many avenues I followed led to Ron Davis’ book “The Gift of Dyslexia”.  It was a revelation; that rather than a disability my son’s dyslexia could be a gift.  We found a facilitator and jointly as a family decided to try the Davis process.  To say it was a turning point is putting it mildly.  From that point on my son’s learning trajectory changed.  He had the tools to avoid the confusion dyslexia can cause – and I had the knowledge to continue with the Davis methods we had both learned.  At the age of 8 his reading age had been more than two years behind his actual age, but by the age of 10 it had transformed to be ahead.  A point of great pride for him was being awarded the children’s highly commended dyslexia award at the BDA 2017 annual ceremony.  Now 12, my son continues to do well at school.  He loves reading and, while he does not yet love writing, his ability to get all of the great ideas in his head out onto paper continues to grow.  His success has made me want to help others with dyslexia achieve the same.  During 2017 and 2018 I went through the rigorous Davis facilitator training and in early 2019 I was delighted to become fully registered.  Please contact me to discuss how we can work together to overcome the difficulties presented by dyslexia and unlock the potential of the dyslexic mind.

    I am happy to travel to you to deliver a programme but, usually, only as far as will allow me to get home in the same day.
