    I originally trained as a State Registered Nurse, giving up that occupation to have children.

    My daughter was dyslexic, dyspraxic and had issues with visual stress and Attention Deficit Disorder. When she was 15 we discovered the book, “The Gift of Dyslexia” by Ronald D Davis and my daughter followed a Davis® programme, since which time we have not looked back. She achieved an Honours Degree in Music in 2006.

    While working at West Cliffe Montessori, Keighley, supporting dyslexic and dyspraxic students, I used Davis methods with such heartening results that I was inspired to train to become a Davis Facilitator.

    I have also undertaken training in early years and primary Montessori education. The combination of these two methods has given me a deep insight into how the more conventional approach to education causes some children to develop dyslexic problems.

    In 2017 I was honoured to receive a Highly Commended Award in the Teacher’s section of the BDA Awards. That year my client was nominated by his school, Giggleswick School in North Yorks for the Children’s Award and also received a Highly Commended Award.

    I am also now delighted to be licensed to deliver the Davis Autism Approach, to help wonderful Autistic individuals participate more fully in life, and the Davis Concepts for Life, which can support those with or without any diagnosis to make changes to their lives that make living so much easier.

    My object is to enable children and adults to use the talents that the dyslexic/autistic thought process gives them without needing to be hampered by the difficulties that often develop at the same time. To allow autistic individuals in particular, to participate more fully in life.

    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.

    Please get in touch for a free, informal, exploratory consultation if you think I can be of any help to you, or anyone you know with a dyslexic/autistic thinking style.
