Lesley-Ann has worked wonders with helping us engage with our autistic son and we have successfully started turning negative outcomes into positive outcomes in a very short space of time. The therapists understood our needs and requirements and was very helpful. We look forward to continuing our sessions.

- Russell Colwell , Oxford

Kate was incredibly responsive in setting up the appointment. She was open to my idea of holding the appointment at my son's childcare setting. She was fun and engaging in the session and noticed when he needed a break from concentrating and encouraged some gross motor play. The report was drafted within one working day of the appointment - incredibly efficient!

- Katy Johnson , Oxfordshire

Really pleased. Given the media reports long delays in ADHD assessments this has been a very slick and quick process. The technology elements (text and email) work really well

- John Bracegirdle , Wiltshire

Owl centre have been flexible in finding a way to support me and my needs, helping me to move forward with custom support.

Jo was very kind and patient throughout Thomas' assessment.

A breath of fresh air after months of making no progress - Beckie was fantastic and seemed to intuitively understand what had been going on and had thoroughly reviewed all the background information she had requested before the assessment. I would have no hesitation in recommending The Owl Centre.

- Jessica Melling , Berkshire

I was assessed with ADHD in my adulthood on 7th Feb 2023 by Louise Henderson. The assessment has changed my life for the better. I always knew I had ADHD however, never had the courage to go for the assessment until, one day I made a decision. I was so happy with the process from start to finish.

I will recommend Owl Therapy Centre.

Thank you so much Louise for making a huge difference in my life, through the ADHD Assessment. I can now move on with my life, and have a better workplace/reasonable adjustment.

My friends and Family understand who I am, and why my brain is wired differently.

Such a fab service for both asd and adhd assessments , kind and caring staff who carried out the assessments online. Couldn’t thank them enough for their help and diagnosis.

- Chrystal , Oxfordshire

Sultana was professional yet personable. She was extremely knowledgeable and able to answer all my questions. She was lovely with my son and her interactions with him put him at ease. She was able to reassure me and give me solid advice about how to support my son's language development.

- Adele Smith , Greater Manchester

Colette Lloyd is amazing with Andrew and so patient with us, can not wait for Andrew's next session. Thank you

You personally, really made me feel comfortable, settled my anxiety and kindly guided me through the process, especially when talking about my most vulnerable, historical connotations.

- Chas Doyle

- Katie Janzen , Kent

My daughter Megan has recently had a ASD Assessment based at the Cheltenham centre.
I would like to Thank Dr Katy Atkinson and Lisa Mc Gowan for their professionalism and kindness. They both made the experience less daunting with a personal and reassuring approach, explaining everything step of the way.
Dr Katy has spent the time to communicate with me personally and via emails and made it feel like nothing is too much trouble.
We are hopeful that now she has an autism diagnosis and recommendations for help and support our daughter will get through the difficult teenage years she had been struggling with so much and thrive at college.
I would highly recommend the Owl Centre to anyone wanting an autism assessment.

- Sarah Earle , Gloucestershire

Rebecca is a very professional and gifted practitioner she created an instant rapport with our son and could answer our questions and address concerns reassuringly. We have been very happy with our initial sessions so far.

- Helen Hunt , Gloucestershire

Dimitra is absolutely amazing. Her assessment of my daughters needs was very thorough and her detailed report was excellent. I have every confidence that not only will the report help with my daughters upcoming EHCP at tribunal to get the provisions she desperately needs into her plan, but also that the teaching staff will have all the information they need to understand and actually deliver the right therapy to help my daughter thrive at her new school. I had already been waiting for over a year for an NHS assessment and so requesting this assessment for my daughter was the best decision I could have made and very affordable too. Thank you so much.

- Cheryl Gellard-Jones , Buckinghamshire

We were so impressed with the whole experience using Owl therapy, Caz was absolutely fantastic, really helpful and has really given us some fantastic advice. We would definitely use owl again and recommend.

- Abi Davies , Carmarthenshire

Overall we have had a great experience so far. Extremely helpful and very quick communication back and forth.

- Kirsty Ayres , Berkshire

I just wanted to say a big Thank You to owl therapy. Our family have been on a long journey of uncertainty and we finally met people who could help us. Emma Day is a superb therapist and she made the whole process seamless. We now have the answers we need about our daughters Autism to move forward. Thank you again- highly recommend.

- Mrs Calvert

We had a lovely experience with Nell from the moment we met her. Our son G took to her very well and she managed to keep him engaged and 'working' without getting too distracted. She understood his attention span/interests and incorporated this into his sessions. Within 2 sessions he was able to make sounds he had never made before. When we flew out of the country, Nell sent us several emails with ideas, activities and exercises we could do to keep his speech development going. Would 100% recommend the centre and 120% recommend Nell. Thanks again for all your help!

- Emily Landless , Cirencester

Our family recently had the pleasure of being helped by the OWL Centre. Sultana was a breath of fresh air for us, she made us feel understood and at ease but more importantly our child did also. We felt that assessment was thorough and very professional within a informal environment that brought out the best from the meeting. Following the meeting the report and the feedback was given to us the next day. This also gave us the added peace of mind that after the meeting our case was a priority to Sultana. Big thank you.

- Ryan Hartigan and Leanne Wilson , Greater Manchester

The expertise of the professionals involved with my sons diagnosis was impeccable, the understanding/knowledge of Dr Susie Hughes in particular is truly outstanding. Every contact and enquiry I have had with the owl center in general, was dealt effectively and all staff are very efficient. I haven't had a single negative experience with them. Thank you.

- Amy Lamburn , Hertfordshire

We couldn’t fault the service we have received. It’s been so fast but so detailed and intense. Julie has made us feel at ease during the whole process and her report is incredibly detailed and supportive.

- Kayleigh Oliver , Kent

I just want to say how amazing this service has been. After waiting so long for on waiting lists it was worth the wait to have such an efficient process made even better by lovely clinicians. Therapist Jays did my daughters autism assessment and her ability to engage and build a rappor with my daughter was amazing. They also recommended an adhd assessment which was done by Dr Weerapperuma. Who I have to say I felt she went absolutely above and beyond in explaining things and really took her time, we didn’t feel rushed at all. She arranged the follow up later that day to ensure my partner could be there too. So happy with the service we have revieved. Thank you so much!

- Chloe , Hull

Outstanding service by compassionate practitioners. Kind, efficient and thorough, I can’t fault them.

- Rosie Gill-Moss , Kent

Although we haven't received the final report or potential diagnosis yet, so far the two doctors/therapists we have had meetings with so far have been fabulous. Very friendly and they have put both myself and my daughter at ease. They made the potentially stressful and emotional process relaxing and fluid. I would definetly recommend to others regardless of outcome.

- Jessica Owen , West Sussex

So impressed with the swift and succinct access to Owl Therapy and with the thorough, warm and engaging assessment with Izabelle. Incredibly grateful.

The whole process was supportive, authentic, thorough, robust and sensitively managed. Thank you all for such care in what are emotively challenging circumstances. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending your services to others.

- Isabell Caralvitta Corbett , Greater London

I am so glad that I found The Owl Centre! I have been very impressed with the ease of making the first booking and my first appointment yesterday with Dagmar which went really well. Dagmar was lovely and made both my partner and I feel at ease. I am impressed with her level of professionalism and also the information that she was able to provide us on stammering and look forward to the next session with my daughter!

- Eleanor Britton , Oxfordshire

Katie is extremely personable. The little boy within my preschool was happy and engaged throughout the session and Katie's explanation of targets and sharing of resources has made it simpler for me to support him. Thank you

Incredible service. Annah was very detailed with her feedback from the session and all staff at the nursery highly praised her for her support and advice. We can't wait to book in with her again!

- Kerry Sharpe , Leicestershire

Beckie is absolutely fantastic and she has been very helpful and patient with my baby.

- Ching Liu , Greater Manchester

Excellent service provided by Owl therapy centre.

- Zaiba Ahmed , Berkshire

We were delighted with our session with Olly! He was so amazing with Robin and explained things so well to my husband and me. We felt very reassured and empowered to help Robin going forward. The tasks Olly gave us and the extra documents he sent are really helpful. We will work on all this and get back in touch in a month or so to touch base with him. I was also incredibly impressed with your organisation as a whole - everything from your website, to the efficiency and speed of communication and appointment booking. As a Physiotherapist myself, I am definitely keen to link into your business if possible - I will get in touch in the near future to investigate this. Many thanks again and best wishes, Bethan

- Bethan Edwards , Oxfordshire

Thank you all I can't thank you enough. The service responds quickly to any questions asked and the clinc we attended for my daughter was lovely, relaxing and the staff very welcoming. Great service 😊

- Sandy Felstead , Leicestershire

Lady at owl centre Claire was great with cooper made he feel at ease and he had a great time with her and the assessment video was very informative with dr velu - haven’t had report yet as we have now added another assessment on so delayed a little but every step and communication has been great 😊

- Sarah Doherty , Gloucestershire

Professional, yet always approachable. Thankyou for all the therapists involved and their support. Highly recommended.

- Sandie Sherratt , Gloucestershire

Everyone at Owl has been really helpful and kind, and has been very thorough in investigating our daughter's condition, speaking to her teachers, therapists etc as well as going into her history in detail with us. We really appreciate the time taken to come to a careful and considered opinion about her condition and the understanding shown to us and to our daughter throughout the process. Thank you.

- Joti Brar , Bristol

Good communication, friendly and helpful staff.

- Rebecca Sousa , Gloucestershire

This was a very swift and efficient service which was friendly and not at all intimidating for my son. Thank you.

- Hilary Tippett , Gloucestershire

We loved Leslie-Ann - just wished she could have stayed longer but unfortunately our meetings are only one hour!

- Justine Smith

Everything was very well organised and conducted, thank you.

- Peter Webster , Lancashire

Despite not knowing where to start in the search for private speech therapy, I came across your website through Google and it's been a very easy journey ever since. The communications before and since the assessment were very timely and Claire has been fantastic with our son since then. A somewhat daunting task has become completely manageable and I'm so glad it was The Owl Centre who are helping my son with his speech.

- Suzie Robinson , Buckinghamshire

Sarah was amazing excellent communication and very efficient and knowledgeable service. Would definitely recommend

- Donna Worboys , Oxfordshire

Georgie has been lovely with Max. She is very quick to send me resources for me to work on at home with Max, also she is flexible with timings and is happy to cut his session a bit shorter as he is struggling to focus for an hour. She always comes on time and prepared.

- Ceri Hurley , Oxfordshire

Danielle is kind, knowledgeable and really has a wonderful relationship with Freddie. We’re really pleased with the progress in the short amount of time Danielle has been working with Freddie.

- Abigail Tapley , Berkshire

Tara was great at going in to my son's school to evaluate him on a couple of occasions. Her report was concise, well researched and helpful. The recommendations that came with her feedback were invaluable.

- Lucy Law

Dagmar was incredibly sensitive and clearly an expert in her field. A very helpful consultation, with some really good recommendations, thank you.

- sinead naidoo , Oxfordshire

The process of ASD diagnosis was a very positive one for our child. He actually enjoyed his assessment session and he has asked if Chloe can come and see him again! From first approach to report and post-diagnosis support/guidance, it has been efficient, rigorous and supportive. It felt like a relief as a parent to have my instincts that my child was autistic validated by Dr Faye Millner and Chloe Farley. Great communication and so much empathy. Thank you.

- Caroline May , Kent

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Iam really happy,,thanks for your support.

- Vania Martins , Oxfordshire

Early days but good so far


It's taken me a while to write this review for Zoe Swayne. Zoe saw my son in October half term in 2019. At the time we were extremely worried about our son, he started reception and was not settling well at school. He was not speaking to anyone. We contacted The Owel Centre, Zoe saw my son and we had a diagnosis.
I and My husband are ever so grateful for the way she dealt and assessed my son. Her report really helped in terms of getting the support my son needed at school. We cannot thank her enough for what she has done and the difference she has made in my son's life. Thank you very much

- Nishi M Patricio , Kent

We were very happy with the service provided by the Owl Centre. The professionals conducting the ASD assessment were warm, friendly and supportive and made the process stress free for our son and for us.

- Carmen Waters , Hampshire

Leslie-Ann was incredible! It was amazing to watch her work with my son. Brilliant process from start to finish. Would happily recommend to others. Thank you so very much.

- Elizabeth Chapman

Marie (Occ Therapist) was fantastic - so supportive, professional and lovely to deal with

- Christopher Jones , Gloucestershire

Laila Tyrell was wonderful with my son, during his initial speech and language assessment. I would 100% recommend.

- Rebecca Spiers , Oxfordshire

Very pleased with the service provided by The Owl Centre.

- Fiona Kunicki , Berkshire

Really quick in responding to my initial enquiry which I really appreciated. A great service in general. Lisa was able to come to the house really quickly to assess our son and was very thorough. The report was received by the next day which I was really impressed with too. Unfortunately we knew that our son would't be able to access these services on the NHS in a timely manner so we were really grateful and fortunate to be in a position to pay privately.

- Emily Stevenson , Bedfordshire

The contact with the Owl Center was quick, and after I was referred to the specialist, I received all the guidance on how the assessment would be. Very attentive to my daughter's needs.

- Nina Rita Scotti , Oxfordshire

Anna was a great help in reassuring us we were already using some good strategies with our son and offered us some additional strategies to use. We will have a review in a few months to see if his speech is progressing. Great to have the support.

- Shannon Platts , Middlesex

The speech therapist Amy was absolutely lovely and put my son at ease.She was very well informed and professional. We learned a lot of valuable information.

- pamela manley , Cheshire

My son felt very comfortable and everything ran smoothly

- Charlotte Yiend , Gloucestershire

Abi has done a great job over these sessions. Thank you

- Cath Day , Glamorgan

Rebekah Drennan has been amazing! She is very kind, my son got on really well with her and she has been really supportive throughout the whole process.

- Emma Day , Hertfordshire

My enquiry was responded to really quickly and with all the information I needed to move forward. The appointment online with the therapist and my daughter went really well with the therapist being very welcoming, friendly and easily engaged with my 5 year old. Highly recommend this centre.

- Sarah Watson , Oxfordshire

We were looking for an ASD assessment for our 11 year old son. Waiting lists in our area are really long. We found the Owl Centre and they were able to offer exactly what we needed. The whole process from start to finish was really straightforward. Karthik was open and approachable and explained everything to me really clearly. He was so kind and patient when he spoke to my son. My son was able to answer questions even though it was really difficult for him. We had the same experience with Claire who carried out the ADOS assessment. She was kind, reassuring and calm. The final report was completed quickly and was accurate and detailed. I am so glad we found the Owl Centre. Thank you.

- A Hendry , Sussex

Abi Longland was amazing and we were very happy to have her see our son. He warmed to her immediately, even going as far as to shout "I love you" when she left after an hour or so! Thanks x

- lawrence seidner , Hertfordshire

Very positive feedback from my child and her childminder where the assessment took place. My daughter was very happy and chatty when I picked her and was eager to talk about what she had done.

- Taryn Izzo , Hampshire

Zoe was so informative, helpful, compassionate and supportive during our session. She has really helped us to support our son better. Thank you Zoe!

- Amy Davies , Kent

I was slightly worried about pursuing an assessment as an adult female but upon speaking to Andrew I felt like he really understood my fears and all of my questions were answered and I was made to feel understood. The assessment itself was done at my house which I really appreciated because I would have been anxious going anywhere else or doing an online assessment. Andrew and Jen were both very friendly and made it known that I could contact them with questions at any time. I felt like they knew what I needed without me really having to say. I was very happy with the overall experience and would definitely recommend The Owl Centre to family and friends.

- Claire Ronayne , Greater Manchester

We are so happy to have found Millicent (OT/Bath). After my son's assessment we had a feedback session with her on zoom and she explained her report item by item. We have also started treatment with her and already can see signs of improvement. Millicent is great with my son, keeping him interested during the entire session and he usually looks forward to their sessions together. She is also really good at communicating with us and has been available when I needed a phone call in between sessions. Sensory Processing Challenges are still unknown here in the UK/NHS and up to the point when we found The Owl Centre we felt like no one really understood our concerns, so we are pleased that we have found an OT who can support us in our journey with our son. I would strongly recommend the Owl Centre to anyone needing an assessment or therapy to their loved ones.

- Thais Leandrini Brand , Somerset

Abi has been extremely approachable and very quickly established a trust and connection with our daughter, putting her at ease in a situation which would normally be very difficult for her. Even after 4 sessions we can already see an improvement in our daughter's communication skills & willingness to give things a try.

- Kim Marczak , Oxfordshire

As an adult, it was hard to find the courage to go for an ADHD assessment. The NHS is overwhelmed understandably, so I took the step. I believe it was Megan, the receptionist who was very helpful in arranging my assessment. Olufunke was my specialist and was really very kind, eased my anxiety and was very thorough. I am now able to understand myself as a result and receive treatment to help me get my life back.

- Ashley Sayers , Northamptonshire

I honestly can’t thank you enough. The process was made to feel so smooth, easy and comfortable. The therapists were incredible from start to finish. Thank you to Jen, Andrew and Joanne for everything

- Jayne Gray , Greater Manchester

Rebekah was brilliant with Bella and the report is very clear thank you.

- Laura Chapman , Buckinghamshire

The team made what could have been a very scary and daunting process really straight forward and positive. I felt fully supported and informed throughout.

- Victoria Lamb , Gloucestershire

All my life I thought I was neuro-typical and couldn’t understand why people couldn’t accept me or why they treated me different. I just thought it was everyone else and thought that my reactions where okay and acceptable, couldn’t understand why my partners feared me! I’ve been called crazy, inappropriate, thick, gift of the gab, ditsy, and other offensive words I’d rather forget but the truth is that I was missed diagnosed until today, today I have been diagnosed with autism - I cried lots because it’s relief due to the frustrations and consequences of not knowing I was any different, However my clinician Amber Zahroof was highly professional and warm, she understood me in a non-judgemental way, I’ve never experienced this before so therefor I was able to trust her and open up and be my self . Now I know what I have I wanted to share with the world because I am certain there are many more women from my generation that were missed diagnosed due to it not presenting in women way back when I was starting school and I am certain there will be missed diagnosed men too. Luckily for me I have/had amazing parents that literally did everything for me then when my dad passed away - well me being me acted different and recently have been being assessed for autism. This diagnosis means everything to me because even that we are seen to live in a #neurodiverse world, reality shows me we still have a way to go and hopefully one day there will be less barriers for us neurodivergents, as we matter and we should be a welcomed part of the community regardless of how different we may be. Excuse the novel but this is an important part of my life that I chose to share! I will never forget Amber because she has helped me understand me more so I can develop and get back into employment, one thing Amber said was yes you will do things differently but it’s not wrong! Totally inspirational lady and feel honoured to have met her. Thank you all at the Owl therapy centre especially Amber Zahroof and Rebecca Clarke - again apols for all the missed appointments and thank you for not giving up on me 🫶🧩🎗 #neurodiversity #autismawareness 💕

- Nalina Brahim-said , Bolton

We have only had 1 session so far but I can't recommend Katie and the Owl centre enough. She is kind and informative, she explains everything thoroughly in a way we have been able to completely understand. After feeling unsure about things for a while, I feel so confident that she is going to have a really positive impact on my son.

- Georgina Leach , Oxfordshire

Lovely team and brilliant communication.

- Tracy Elliott , Gloucestershire

Owl therapy have been amazing right from the start from the moment I phoned to enquire to my son having his ADHD assessment.
I can’t thank Dr Karthik Velu enough, he put me at ease by talking me through the whole process and supported me with providing evidence for my report. The assessment itself was very thorough and he really made my son and I feel very comfortable. I have actually recommended owl therapy to my child’s SEN team at school as parents often ask about private assessments and where to go.
My son will now be able to get the support he needs at school and Owl therapy have pointed me in the right direction of the next steps to help him!

Thank you again
Five stars!

- Jo paine , Bristol

Claire and Faye have made the whole process straightforward and have been helpful along the way. Many thanks.

- Helena McLaughlin , West Sussex

So far we are really pleased with the service. Francesca has made a good rapport with the students and communication with the centre has been really good.

- wrightrobinsoncollege

Caz was amazing from the first point of contact right through until providing the report. I contacted you for help with my sons speech and language after 4 months on the NHS waiting list and being told we still had a minimum 2 month wait left. I received a response the following day from you and an assessment was booked for the day after that! The following evening after the assessment Caz emailed me the report so everything was dealt with completely within 3 days and I am so impressed. Caz was fantastic with my son and it has been a breakthrough for us as a family, his speech and language is developing already and we have learnt from Caz the key to communicating with him. I couldn't recommend you enough and am so grateful for all your help.

- Kayleigh Reeve , Kent

Lovely therapist. Very helpful.

- Peter Killer , Berkshire

All of the people that I have spoken to and have interacted with my child have been wonderful. At no point did we feel rushed during the process and everyone seemed really genuinely interested in my child.

- Alison Benjamin , Surrey

- Jane Nicholls , Wrecsam - Wrexham

The service was professional and efficient. Within days I had already recommended you to colleagues.

- Kelly Wood , Oxfordshire

Can’t rate the Owl Centre, and our therapist Tara, highly enough.
It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Tara to support my teenage sons improvement with his speech (stutter/block).
I never expected the results to be so impactful working over a screen! Having zoom sessions made it easy to fit into our hectic family schedule. Tara always put my son at ease and made the sessions engaging and enjoyable (I learnt a lot too!).

My son has gained more than simply an improvement in his speech, it has impacted his confidence and I know he’ll reflect on this in the future as an example of the positive result of asking for help.
All communication with The Owl Centre and directly with Tara was fantastic.

- Kate French , Bicester, Oxfordshire

Laila was lovely with my son and he said he would love to have more sessions with her!

- Laura Fleming , Oxfordshire

Amazing service so reassuring, answered all my questions and worries promptly. So polite and helpful all staff went above and beyond. Fast turn around but extremely detailed sad I didn’t do it sooner was so worth it.

- Dominique Wright , Greater Manchester

Excellent service. Thank you.

- Andrea Dixon , Cornwall and Isles of Scilly

Hi there. I really recommend the Owl Centre. Our therapist Jessica was lovely, and she made Sahib (my 3 old son) and us feel extremely comfortable. Sahib still asks about her and her toys that she brought with her for Sahib to play with. I would highly recommend the Owl service if you feel your child has speech and language difficulties. Jessica was also able to answer any questions that we had and gave us some great feedback.

- Simran Jassal , Middlesex

I am very impressed with The Owl Centre. I received a reply to my inquiry within two days and even though the OT in our area didn't have any spaces for us at that moment the communication between us was great. In the end Millicent managed to book the assessment as she had a cancelation and we were so pleased to meet her. She was very professional and my son really liked her. We are looking forward to receiving the report and working together. Thank you!

- Thais Leandrini Brand , Somerset

Tara is just brilliant! She has supported our family, not just our son, with warmth and care as well as professional expertise. Her honest and sensitive communication has been so valued by us. Can’t recommend her highly enough!

- Emma Fallon , Gloucestershire

Wonderful service, went above and beyond. Dr Katy was so nice, very quick service, kept us fully informed throughout the process and gave a really detailed report with recommendations for going forward. Highly recommend. Thank you.

- Rosalind Hardy

Really like Dani. My son has clicked well with her. Look forward to making more progress

- Nadia Lismore , Hertfordshire

Naima was great from start to finish. Very accommodating, flexible, adaptable and caring to the situation. Would highly recommend and will almost certainly do follow up sessions with Naima. Thank you.

- Suresh Singh Salgania , Bedfordshire

Superb personal thoughtful and helpful throughout!

- Michelle Newman

I would like to say that I'm so grateful to find Lauren England ,she just not gave us a diagnoses, she gave us Hope . with so much care and love and attention, my daughter absolutely love her .I would recommend her 100% and definitely looking forward to have her help again.

- Vanessa Costa , Wiltshire

I am very happy with the treatment my son is getting. He loves his therapist, and it's clear she's got a way with kids. My son is already making improvements after the first session. I was also very impressed with how easy it was to make a payment. Certainly would recommend.

- Cristina Banks-Leite , Berkshire

Eyraina was superb and a real credit to The Owl Centre team.

- Ahlexi Enjily , Oxfordshire

An absolutely superb system for registering for help and clear channels of communication. The documentation issued as part of the Assessment were clear and well written; I have nothing but positive feedback to give. A special thank you to Dr Faye Millner for all of her help and support.

- Mel Sutherland , Gloucestershire

Gemma Wilson was really supportive and understanding throughout the whole process. I feel she really worked hard to discover as much as she could about my daughter to reach the correct diagnosis. When she met with Etta she put her completely at ease and made us both feel heard and understood. Etta’s report is very detailed and shows how much research Gemma did in her investigation to reach her conclusion.

- Amy Grix , Kent

You're in great hands here and will receive a service along with passion and support. I'll never forget what they have done for me.

- Terence Clegg , Manchester

It is early days with the Owl Centre but so far I am impressed with the help my daughter is receiving.

- Kellie Ashley , Berkshire

I would definitely recommend The Owl Centre to others. The process has been easy and Melissa Evered is wonderful.

- Lesley Liston , Hampshire

Great communication. Website easy to use. Lovely therapist and great communication following on from initial assessment

- Allyson Davies , Glamorgan

I am so pleased my son has been assessed by Nicola. Although he'll need to work hard at correcting the articulation issues that he has, I am confident that with Nicola's advice, expertise and support he will succeed in doing this!

- Holly Soffe

It was well worth travelling to get this assessment done face to face in an ideal setting. Sally was able to set my child at ease and consequently all tests were completed satisfactorily. A detailed report took only a few days.

- Joanna Hughff , Suffolk

friendly supportive and responsive to our daughters urgent needs, already feel that progress or a direction has started whereas before we were totally lost and at our 'wits end' of where to go, when it is your child who needs this support it cannot come quick enough, The Owl Centre have helped immensely with the confidence that things will get better and a relative calm has returned again.

- Jeremy Jones , Surrey

My son has met with Isabelle Walser for his OT and she has been absolutely phenomenal with him. Some people really find their true calling in life and Isabelle has found hers. She is an asset to the Owl Centre and the families she supports.

- Stacey Woodhouse

Hope was really lovely and immediately made my son at ease. He’s usually quite shy but warmed to Hope immediately. I particularly liked how Hope took time to listen and talk to my son in between formally assessing him in order to gain a full picture of his needs.

- Kerry Mistry , Berkshire

Recieved my Adult Autism Assessment report today and am very impressed with the care and detail that has been invested throughout the whole process. Fantastic and reassuring diagnostic process provided by people who clearly care about people.

- Ashley Mottram , Manchester

All very quick and easy. The therapist was wonderful with the pupil.

- christine Wellard , Kent

Everyone was very patient with me initially when I was enquiring. It has been now a couple of years when I was enquiring and it took me some time to make a decision to proceed with the assessment and therapy for my son. I never felt any irritation from anyone when I was asking too many questions or giving probably too much detail about my son. It is very stressful to have a child with SEN and it matters when the therapists are easy going and relaxed when dealing with parents. I would like to thank to everyone at The Owl Centre for being so kind and understanding and professional.

- Klaudia Baker

Very professional and nice therapist. I think my daughter enjoyed her session very much.She kept asking me for 2 days to "mummy call the lady again" :)

- Urszula Tomczynska , Berkshire

Early days of working with Dimitra who is very professional and friendly and has great communication. She makes sessions fun and varied and my son is enjoying working with her very much😊

- Milton Keynes Local Authority , Buckinghamshire

The Owl Centre have continually provided therapists who have become trusted practitioners within our establishment. I know that when a specialist is needed, The Owl Centre will provide a quality practitioner and this is so reassuring.

- St. Edwards school

My son loved Emma. She is super fun, she made the time he had with her exciting, eventhough he is a very difficult boy to please.

- Samantha Darbera , Hertfordshire

We are extremely happy with services so far. Jaya is great and we can't wait to continue working with her in the future.

- Natalie McNeil , Hertfordshire

Sally was excellent, she was very generous with her time and went to great lengths to set my daughter at ease. I’m very grateful for her assistance.

- Pam Clarke , Oxfordshire

From my initial enquiry through to the assessment and diagnosis we feel that every care has been made to meet not only our son's needs but ours too. Faye has an amazing manner and way with both adult's and children alike, she put us all at ease and was accommodating to Taylor's comfort and behaviour and our own fears as parents. This level of care and compassion carries on throughout email's and face to face interaction too. Going through the Owl Centre and paying privately - in our opinion - has been worth every penny.

- Kate Rudd , Kent

Sue was incredibly helpful and friendly. It was a pleasure to meet her and to have her help with our family.

- Jemima Pettifer , Oxfordshire

Faye was an absolute joy to deal with. She was so understanding with my son who really struggles with his social interactions. Being able to get my son assessed and the report received within such a short period of time from my first enquiry was outstanding.

- Heather Hall , East Sussex

I can not recommend Zoe enough.
When she met Austin he was 3 years old with a very complicated health history and couldn’t say one word. Now he’s 5 and he can have a conversation almost about everything ;)
Zoe is not only a very friendly and a warm person she also makes every session fun . Can’t thank her enough.

- Kasia , Gravesend


- Rukhsana Rajab , Gloucestershire

Zoe was excellent at putting my daughter at ease and made the session fun. Zoe gave lots of praise which has motivated my daughter to put into practice what she was taught. Highly recommend Zoe!

- Kate , Maidstone

Alayna is great!

- Carmel Kent , Oxfordshire

My son’s time with Millicent had now come to an end under her wonderful care.

As you may remember, he was suffering from SPD and dyspraxia and after two years and a pandemic and baby in between, he has flourished under Millicent’s expert supervision.

I was keen to write to let you know what a fantastic practitioner she is and such a valuable asset to your team. My son and Millicent had such a special bond that he was genuinely sad when I told him his therapy was coming to an end.

Bath is so under represented in good OT practitioners - especially with such advanced understanding of conditions like SPD - and there are so many parents desperate for support that they are not getting from their children’s schools or NHS teams.

A number of my friend’s children have since visited Millicent too and are similarly impressed and my son's school have been blown away by her knowledge and understanding. In fact, the SENCO lady said that my son would never be cured from SPD and two years later they can’t believe the transformation in him.

He has gone from a very anxious, angry and distracted boy into a much more self assured, confident and happy eight year old. He has even started talking positively about himself and was told he was ‘flourishing’ in his latest school report, which was so heart warming to read finally.

We wish Millicent every success as she continues to build what we’re sure will be a very successful practice for the Owl Centre in Bath. We hope she continues to receive your support and investment as the practice grows from strength to strength.

- Helena Roberts , Bath

Sherri has been so helpful at all stages and I'm really looking forward to my future sessions with her

- Vicky Giles , Gloucestershire

We are deeply grateful for the support and care that our little boy has received from Sally. From the beginning our son warmed up to her and looked forward to their sessions. We have seen a lot of progress from the work they have done together. She also provides valuable feedback that has helped us incorporate good learning skills during our daily routine. We are very happy parents and thank the Owl Centre team and Sally for your continued support.

- Eva Weru , Berkshire

Very happy with the service Lauren and Nicola have provided to us! All the tips during the session and the report were really helpful.

- Richard Brown , Gloucestershire

Report was informative and the therapist was professional.

- Clare Vigus , Kent

Zoe was kind and professional. She answered all our questions honestly and with clear options. With our young son she was playful and engaged him well - he was very comfortable with her being in our home and so were we. The report produced after our assessment was clear and comprehensive. There was no pressure at any point. Overall, this was a very good experience for a first assessment for a non verbal 2-year-old.

- Charlotte Cornell , Whitstable

Jessica was very professional and warm, and engaged wonderfully with all family members. She made the session fun and the follow up activities easy to understand and complete.

- Ali Elloway , Berkshire

Jaya is excellent. My son is really enjoying his sessions so far.

- Kathryn Chambers , Worcestershire

This has been incredibly helpful for me. Both Faye and Amber were extremely professional, kind and supportive. I honestly feel this has been a bit of an inflection point in my life - suddenly everything is beginning to make sense. Words can't describe how grateful I am. I would wholeheartedly recommend the Owl Centre.

- Charlie Thurstan , Shropshire

Becky was was really nice, patience & engaging, we felt comfortable and happy with her feedback.

- Sharon Davies , Greater Manchester

The practitioner who visited was everything I hoped she would be. She listened carefully, wore her wisdom lightly and offered a range of really helpful advice and practical tips that could be actioned immediately. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend. Thank you, Sacha.

- Jo Keen , West Sussex

The extraordinary professionalism with which my son's case was dealt with was exceptional from the very beginning. We would highly recommend The Owl Centre to anyone who is seeking a high quality, holistic & independent assessment service. A superbly fast, efficient and professional service. Faye, Jo and Jen, we cannot thank you enough for all your help. You have changed our lives! FB, Dublin, Ireland.

- felicity Byrne

Claire was fab, we never felt rushed and she was very thorough. We are looking forward to supporting our child with his next stage of therapy.

- Kim and Tom Senior , Hertfordshire

Dear Owl Office,

I would like to inform you that I have been fortunate enough to meet Clare Mangan through your services in a moment of my life when I felt the need to find new directions, commitments and decisions. Clare, being a highly rational and analytical person helped me find my son's Special educational needs, his strength, developmental areas with serenity and consciousness. Clare doesn't give you solutions but several toolkits to effectively find your solutions. Clare is crystal clear in her reasoning and coaching without leaving space to interpretations. I keep having moments when my mind reminds me, ''this is what Clare would say''!
During her coaching programm her support was instrumental to go through the deep observations of movie clips of my son's development and performance with increased confidence. Within such a short amount of time she convinced me with believing in my son and myself. I highly recommend any parent to get in touch with Clare who feels the need to have more tools to face the challenges that life inevitably presents, both personally and professionally. She's super and a wizard in her domain and full justice with the tasks in hand.

I believe she's the only one ABA therapist on your website and most of the time parents are not aware of ABA therapy- I feel it will be of your interest to promote this (ABA Therapy) as well.

Thanks for your services Clare.

Kind Regards

- S Hassan , Middlesex

I was very lucky to have Zoe answer my queries and be able to come see my daughter on such short notice. My daughter found it very easy to establish a connection with her and she immediately engaged in playtime! I cannot praise her enough!

I would like to thank everybody at the Owl Centre for their help and care during an unsettling period of our family's lives. We felt we were in excellent hands and that the prime concern at all times was for the well being of our child. I had spoken to other clinics who I felt were motivated to a certain extent by billing, but that was not the case at all with The Owl Centre. I could not recommend them more highly to anyone seeking care. Sincerely, Will Casey

- Will and Susan Casey

Very fast, professional and efficient service

- Kirsty Hanlon

The therapist was brilliant, establishing a rapport with my child very quickly. It was fantastic to see him speak freely with her despite his selective mutism . The therapist took incredible care to listen to our concerns and really went the extra mile to ensure that she had a full picture of our child's difficulties. I cannot recommend highly enough!

- Sarah Smart

Absolutely fabulous service and excellent feedback from parents of the child

- Joanne Watson , Kent

"Great course, I've learnt so much."

"Thanks so much for the Makaton training over the past couple of days. It's been so useful. I'm excited to start using it with the children on my caseload!"

"I absolutely loved the course! I was amazed at how many signs I can now do after 2 x half day training."

"I really enjoyed hearing about the history of where the signs originated from. It helped me to remember them too!"

"I am surprised by how quickly you were able to teach me so many signs. As someone who hasn't signed before, I feel quite able to get my point or feelings known."

- Numerous Makaton training course attendees , Oxfordshire

Both Helen and Zoe are brilliant to work with, very friendly and professional! The children seem to like working with Zoe and parents have responded positively too, we're very happy with the service!

Zoe is fantastic. So helpful and knowledgable, thank you. I feel so reassured as a parent.

The entire process has been exceptionally quick and simple. Rebecca was fantastic with our son and I am feeling so much more optimistic and looking forward to our sessions going forward.

- Rebecca Munn , Nottinghamshire

Everyone was friendly, helpful and communication was very good.

- Leigh Mullinger , Kent

Within 24hours of me making my enquiry on behalf of my adult son, we had an appointment for a full assessment.

My son is feeling so positive, for the first time in a long while.

- Mrs Harwood , Berkshire

I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say [Anthea's] report was extremely detailed and comprehensive. I was extremely impressed. I hope to work with you in the future and highlighted to the rest of the team that the report was of a very high standard.

- Eve Martin , Kent

Really happy with this service and find it’s really reasonably priced it’s been a very positive experience

- Sarah Corner , Kent

Nicola Lathey has been seeing our little boy since the age of 2 (he is now almost 6) He had a diagnosis of severe verbal dyspraxia from the Nuffield in London. Without Nicola’s incredible and speech therapy and support our little boy would not be anywhere near where he is today. Finding The Owl Centre and Nicola was literally life changing for him and for us. She is still seeing him now at school and is an incredibly important and consistent part of his continuing speech development. We will be forever grateful.

- Lynette Webster , Malvern

We are very impressed with Sarah booth. She has been a very good help.

- Sonia Carreira , Oxfordshire

Very satisfied with the entire process from start to finish including the therapist. My son engaged with Amy right from the start. I liked the way she engaged with him and the entire family. I will definitely recommend

- Nya Ngwashi , Cheshire

We've had a good read through and think [Dr Faye Millner's] report should really help all the agencies and professionals who support L.

- R.H. , Cheltenham

We had an Owl Centre speech and language assessment completed for our 10 year old son. The assessment was done at home and was very relaxed and Zoe, his therapist, is so kind and encouraging. We received a fantastic in depth report within a couple of days which we found invaluable for both ourselves but also to send to school. The report showed a sound understanding of our son and his needs and detailed numerous strategies to help him both at home and at school. I cannot recommend the Owl Centre and Zoe Swayne enough.

- L Harrison , Ashford Kent

Zoe has been brilliant with our child. She has a very child friendly demeanor and achieved significant progress in a relatively short time. Thanks to Zoe our child is happier at school and much more confident with her speech! We cannot thank Zoe enough!

- Sebastian and Andrea , Greenhithe

We feel very lucky to have found The Owl Centre to support our almost 4 year old son. With an ASD diagnosis on the day of lockdown, we were so worried we wouldn't be able to get the support he needed but thankfully we got straight in touch with Nicola who found us an amazing speech therapist who then suggested an Autism Consultant, Leslie-Ann, who completely changed things for our son and the way we deal with his autism. She took the time to help us as parents and empower us to help our son. We have seen such progress in him over the last 6 months.

We have used The Owl Centre for all our therapy needs, from initial assessments to speech and occupational therapy and Autism Support. They take a holistic approach to your child's therapy where all your therapists will liaise to make sure the approach is consistent. We can't thanks them all enough for their support.

- Lizzie , Oxfordshire

Jessamy has been a wonderful support to our family. She is incredibly knowledgeable about all things relating to sensory integration and regulation and has a wealth of ideas and resources to bring to therapy sessions. She was really able to connect with our child - who was only 5 when we started therapy - and she always made the sessions fun and engaging. We recently sought her help again over lockdown and even over Zoom, Jessamy was able to build a rapport and conduct a series of really useful sessions and suggest lots of strategies to help with sensory and emotional regulation over a difficult period. We owe Jessamy so much and would not hesitate to recommend her to other families.

- Rebecca Jenkins , Thame

Laila has been brilliant with my son. We have seen massive improvements in his speech within a matter of weeks. Thank you so much.

- Charlotte Robson , Oxfordshire

Very happy with the service provided. The therapist sought information about my child prior to assessment. Her calm, friendly and flexible approach helped my child feel at ease, able to engage with her. The report was received without delay and was accurate and thorough, completely reflecting my child’s personality and needs. Overall a very positive experience. Many thanks.

- Ceri Roper , Bristol

Sally is great and we are really looking forward to welcoming her into the team.

- Bourne Primary School , Middlesex

Katrina has been wonderful with our daughter and us and all the communication we have received both from Owl and Katrina has been first class. Thank you.

- SR , Kent

Tanya has been so lovely and very supportive

- Michelle Turner , Berkshire

I can’t thank you enough for the prompt and professional service we’ve received from the minute I picked up the phone to enquire about an assessment the service has been amazing. Faye Millner has been really helpful in answering all our questions about our daughter’s ASD diagnosis and what it means going forward. The report is comprehensive and will be useful in helping us to get an EHCP and the support our daughter needs. I will be recommending you to others

- Joanne Howard

The ADOS really captures Sarah and how she is. I'm amazed at what came out of it and how consistent it is with how Sarah is.

- J.H. , Gloucester

We can't thank you enough, Jessamy, for your help and support over the last year. You have been brilliant and the zones work has been a real gamechanger. We have learned so much from your sessions that we can put into practice at home, now and in the future. Your expertise and dedication has made such a positive difference to our family and we have really enjoyed the sessions too!

- Maddy Mattin , Oxfordshire

Faye was lovely today with my very anxious son, he came out of his assessment and was happy enough. Faye was welcoming and polite. I would highly recommend and I’m sure I will be using the owl centre again in the future. From the first initial email all my questions were answered and the service acts very quickly. Really happy mum here. Thank you

- Sarah Turner

Zoe Swayne was absolutely fantastic. She was quick in dealing with queries before the assessment. During the assessment, she was brilliant with our 5-year-old (who has ASD). Her report was comprehensive, practical and robust-exactly what we needed. She was also prompt and helpful in answering some further queries that we raised after reading her report. I would not hesitate to recommend her to others. Thank you Zoe!

- Alison Giannangeli , Kent

Zoe worked really well with our 9 year old son. Quickly identifying areas to work on with regards to his stammer and focussing on his confidence. Part of this process was proving to him that techniques could improve the stammer and give him control and therefore more confidence. Skills that he can use forever more! Due to Lockdown these sessions were weekly on Skype and gave us all a focus and the ability to bring something positive out of a strange time. We would certainly recommend Zoe at Owl Therapy.

- Sophie Pearson , Faversham

Nicola delivered a session on Zones of Emotional Regulation to our group of parents/carers of daughters with an autistic spectrum condition and other neurodiverse conditions and teaching staff. She was engaging and informative and clarified how this programme can support young people. It was a brilliant session and we would definitely ask her to support again.


Katherine has been both efficient & fantastic with Jonah. Really love that she has tailored the meeting to meet Jonah’s needs. We are forever grateful thank you Katherine

- Danielle Heard

Zoe Swayne has been working with my daughter since mid 2019. My daughter is autistic and has quite severe speech and language difficulties. She hides her autism very well and struggles to be herself with most people; it can take her a very long time to open up with people if at all. After only a couple of sessions with Zoe my daughter was telling me all about the sessions and what she’d learnt and needed to work on, she was clearly enjoying them and excited about them, she would tell me “Zoe is coming into school this week” and be really excited to go over more and to see her. Even throughout the lockdown Zoe has been amazing, not only providing resources but explaining them to me to enable me to support my daughter with them. She’s done several online sessions too, which my daughter has loved. She has made a lot of progress since working with Zoe, which not only speaks for her skills as a speech and language therapist but also her ability to interact with my daughter and make her feel comfortable enough to be herself. Amber has felt confident enough with Zoe to not worry about getting things wrong, and has been able express if she’s not sure or struggling without feeling silly and feels confident in what is required from her. This has always been a struggle but never been an issue since she’s been working with Zoe. Thank you so much for all you hard work, help and support.

- L Burnham , Kent

Both Zoe and Faye have been very helpful to us regarding our son.

- Allie Woodward

In the current covid19 climate, they have been very accommodating to our needs as a shielding family. They responded to queries extremely quickly, even on weekends. We had an online assessment done over 2 sessions via Google teams and they were excellent. The process of getting in was smooth, the OT Susanne E was amazing. She did a great job getting my 4yr old to interact with her and do the tasks, observing her though the online platform. She has a way with children. My daughter responded very well under the unusual circumstances. Susanne OT answered all our questions, both in the asessment and via email promptly. Nothing is to much trouble. Because we cannot do face to face sessions until at least mid July, it was agreed we will have 1 online therapy session to start us off with ideas. We will then have face to face ones when we are able. We are waiting for the report next week however, I have no doubt it will be on time and thorough. My experience from the owl centre right from the beginning with providing headed quotes for us, responding to emails swiftly, through to the assessment experience has been very impressive. They are swift, nothing's to much trouble and I highly recommend them. I am a SEN special needs teacher by profession. I wish I had found them for my daughter sooner.

- Sarah Bonner , Oxfordshire

The Owl centre is amazing and has helped my little boy so much. Thank you

- Mia Luxton , Gloucestershire

Nicola conducted a speech assessment for my 3 year old son, which had to be held online due to the pandemic lockdown. Despite this challenge, she managed to hold our son's attention brilliantly, and swiftly moved through various exercises in a warm and playful style. Her advice was excellent - succinct, reassuring and practical - and the follow up was rapid and even moved beyond speech advice into nutrition and eating advice. I felt in very safe and expert hands all the way, and would highly recommend the Owl Centre.

- Alice B , London

Working in education I know how long referrals through CAMHS can take and I didn’t feel this was something that could wait up to two years. So to have a response immediately and an appointment within weeks was amazing. I am happy with the care my daughter received and the treatment is going well.

- Anna Cole-Morgan , Oxfordshire

Great service over the last few years very positive experience highly recommend made such a difference to our child

- Selene Edwards , Gloucestershire

Katherine Mills has been attending our nursery setting for just over a year, which we pay for out of our SENAR budget. The children she sees have gained in confidence and language skills and she has provided valuable resources for parents and nursery practitioners to use.

- Northfield Quaker Pre-School

We think Laura our therapist is outstanding. She is extremely creative and puts in considerable effort to find new ways to continually engage our son.

- Caroline Lloyd

The Owl Centre is incredible. They have gone above and beyond for my little boy since he was 2 and he is now 5. He would not be where he is now without the therapy received on a regular basis by Nicola Lathey. She is incredible.

- Lynette Webster

brilliant service, come highly recommended from us. Our speech therapist for our daughter is perfect.

- Phill Stone

Just wanted to say a HUGE thankyou to Zoe Swayne who came and assessed our son and then gave him some therapy sessions this year. He instantly warmed to her and responded wonderfully. She was so patient with him and we can't thank her enough as not only has she given him the confidence to try and say new words she has given us the tools and knowledge to carry on encouraging him. His speech has improved vastly and if there is a tricky word he will automatically 'clap' the sounds to try and help you understand what he's saying and he's so happy he can now communicate how he feels. Can't recommend Zoe highly enough.

The Centre provided a speech and Language assessment and an ASD assessment, both were handled with such care to both my daughter and myself, very professional but personable. They answered all my questions and concerns, not once making me feel like it was any trouble. They made my daughter feel relaxed, took their time, and made sure they got all information required. An excellent service all round, I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again.

My 6 year old son has experienced language difficulties since the age of 2. We brought Tanzilla on board for 6 months to work with us. The progress he has made has been amazing, she built a relationship with him that no other therapist had done. He looked forward to seeing her every week, having that continual support and building that trust really made a difference. Everything was tailored to him, adjusting and putting new things in place as he moved forward. We could not thank her enough for the help she has given him, he has a whole new level of confidence.

I wanted to let you know that we have been extremely impressed with Alexa's professionalism, her dedication, level of detail and the support that she has provided. We would have paid more.

I just wanted to share this with you and a thanks all round for getting this sorted for us.

Lesley-Ann was brilliant with my son. She confidently engaged with him during their home and nursery sessions. Her approach was very fun, she gave us and his nursery great plans and strategies. Would highly recommend Leslie-Ann.

- Jagjeet , South Bucks

We were referred to Leslie-Ann last year when we realised that our two year old son Archie had a speech and language delay and he was exhibiting red flags for autism. We wanted to find the best support available and The Owl Centre was highly recommended to us by an autism specialist. Leslie-Ann has been fundamental in our understanding of how to communicate with Archie. We felt completely at ease with Leslie-Ann when she visited us in our home. She captivated Archie’s attention during therapy sessions and she shared many strategies and activities to help us to engage with Archie.
It was lovely to see how well Archie has bonded with Leslie-Ann. We have been rewarded with a happy little boy who is much less frustrated. We now have lots of chatter and laughter in our home. Leslie-Ann is currently visiting Archie in nursery and providing recommendations and support to his teaching staff. We would highly recommend Leslie-Ann to fellow parents in the Berkshire (and surrounding) area.

My son’s Speech and Language Therapist, Abi, is a fantastic professional, gentle, patient and has created such a nice bond with him. Always giving brilliant advice for us parents too. You must see Abi working and interacting with children to actually know how good she is.
Thank you Abi !

The Owl Centre has been providing high quality, professional staff to support our work at school for 2 years now. Their staff are friendly, knowledgeable and approachable and, above all, we have seen positive results from their work.

- Carl Thurston , Gloucestershire

We have used The Owl Centre S&L services for a number of years and have been delighted with the support we receive for our pupils. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable, and have given the school some great advice for various children with a variety of needs. A worthwhile use of Pupil Premium money for our school, we are very lucky to be able to access this service at a time when public outside agencies are so stretched.

- Sarah Reynolds , Eaton Bray Academy

My 4 year old son has a lisp and Abi came to his school, she did a great job of assessing him and gave us lots of tips. He loved it, it was more play than “therapy” which made it more fun and easier to follow up. Thanks Abi

- Christina , Leighton Buzzard

Rebecca has been working with our son Ethan for the past year and he has made amazing progress in that time. She has such a wonderful kindhearted approach and is endlessly patient. She makes all the activities fun and Ethan always looks forward to his sessions. He adores her, we are so grateful for all your support and would highly recommend her to any child requiring speech therapy.

- Camilla Walley , Gloucestershire

Hi Faye, I've received the report and have taken time to read it all carefully. Thank you so much! I'm so relieved and glad that we decided to have [our son] assessed via The Owl Centre and can now move forwards helping him in the future

- Anon , Kent

Faye, Chris and I just want to say you have been a godsend. So very, very helpful. Somebody giving you some help, when you feel desperate, really makes a difference.

- C.B. , Kent

Fantastic! Very well presented and interesting. Made learning Makaton fun and not intimidating. A really good course. Can't believe how much I learned!

- Anon , Oxfordshire

Michelle is confident and very friendly. She has expert knowledge and is very approachable. I would highly recommend her. I have learned a great deal.

- Victoria , Oxfordshire

[About Michelle's Makaton course] Fantastic course and great tutor. I found it very clear to understand, and it was taught in a very relaxed manner which made it enjoyable.

- L.W. , Oxfordshire

Victoria was *amazing*. Honestly, I can’t speak highly enough of her professionalism and thoughtfulness.

- S.D. , Oxford (visiting from Australia)

I wanted to pass on my gratitude and appreciation to your colleague, Helen. She came to our home to meet my son Oscar and she went above and beyond my expectations. She was caring, nurturing, so passionate and had empathy on a completely different level to anyone I’ve ever met. She was relatable as a mother herself and she made us feel as ease. Can you pass on my appreciation to her, and thank her for making me feel like I’m an ok mum. It’s rare to have such kindness and calmness.

- G.P , Kent

Olga is amazing! So glad to have found her!

- E.K , Gloucestershire

Lovely interactive course. Michelle was friendly and didn't put anyone under pressure. We learned many signs that we'll put into practice right away. Lots of suggestions for books, websites and apps.We've learned masses and enjoyed ourselves.

- Makaton training course attendee , Oxfordshire

Great training, really informative and fun too. Michelle was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Good pace. Venue convenient and appropriate.

Hi Lydia, I know you are busy and I don't want to take your time but I wanted to share with you that, as I was calling around for a new speech therapist, everyone I talked to…had nothing but the nicest things to say about you. You are truly well thought of and highly talked about amongst that community. I knew it was/is going to be next to impossible to find someone as amazing as you but after chatting with a few ladies I now realize it's impossible :)!!

- L.B. , Hertfordshire

Hi Philippa, we so enjoyed meeting you yesterday and [our son] wanted to know when he was going to play with you again! It was such a help to see you at work and we really admire your positive and professional approach. We will both work with the ideas you have given us and will get in touch again if there are further problems. We can’t thank you enough.

- M.A. , Oxfordshire

Just to say, Victoria is an excellent music therapist. My son absolutely adores her, and her music sessions.

- K.M. , Cambridgeshire

We would like to thank Mary for everything she has done for Christopher. It is such a pleasure to hear him speaking the way he now is.

- Christopher's parents , Oxfordshire

My son saw Mary at the Owl Centre for regular speech therapy sessions in our home. Mary always provided a fun, structured session for our son. She was a pleasure to work with and always came prepared and really helped our son make some improvements with certain speech sounds he found difficult. We highly recommend her!

- J.S. , Oxfordshire

Dear Polly, I just wanted to let you know that Barney's speech is now very good. He sometimes has a moment but on the whole it is great. I wanted to say thank you for helping us. It was down to you that he has made the progress he has.

- M.G. , Oxfordshire

We turned to the Owl Centre because the NHS currently has long waiting lists for its support services, and it’s brilliant that the Centre provides these services under one umbrella. My enquiry was dealt with fast and efficiently - I was really impressed. Our daughter was seen by both Tanya [SLT] and Stephanie [OT] who were very knowledgeable and quickly built up an excellent relationship with her. I felt as if they really cared and wanted to help both her and us. We are so glad (and lucky) that our NHS paediatrician suggested we contact you. We would certainly recommend the Owl Centre.

- C.T. , Oxfordshire

As parents, we were worried about [our son’s] stammer. Much of that worry stemmed from a lack of understanding about the condition. We were impressed by how well Mary interacted with [our son] and how her appraisal looked like play. The session helped us to understand how he was developing and how we could help him with his speech. We are now less anxious and feel that he is improving.

- P.B. , Oxfordshire

Thank you so much [to Stephanie] for such a detailed and insightful report (and for getting it to us so quickly). I really feel that you have articulated what I have been feeling for such a long time but I didn't have the expertise to identify myself. Although [our daughter] has a lot going on, in a way it's a relief to have those feelings validated. Hopefully now we can focus on how to support [her] and enable her to work towards and achieve her own independence.

- C.T. , Oxfordshire

I would like to say how pleased I was with our assessment [with Philippa]... My little three year old girl was completely put at ease and responded very well. I felt we got much more than we expected from the experience.

- D.F. , Oxfordshire

As a parent I have always found Lydia to be really approachable and easy to communicate with.

- A mum , Cambridge

I can not recommend the Owl Centre enough. They were recommended to me by a friend at a time when my family was struggling to cope with my ASD daughter. I was getting no help or support from the NHS and didn't know where to turn. I had a lovely phone call with Lydia who was calm, welcoming and very knowledgeable but above all very pro active arranging with my daughter's school to visit her and started working with Ruby straight away. Lydia has been working with my daughter on a weekly basis and Ruby loves their sessions, looking forward to them every week. Her confidence has soared and she's making great progress with her social skills. Lydia doesn't just teach, she looks at the whole person and treats everyone as an individual, building a close bond very quickly. Lydia recommended Laura to us who visits us fortnightly and has really helped build on Ruby's social skills, organisational skills, recall and boosting her confidence and self esteem. Her sessions are always fun and Ruby loves her visits. We have seen a huge change in Ruby since using the Owl Centre. Our home is a much happier one and Ruby seems so much calmer and comfortable within herself. I am so happy we decided to use the Owl centre as year 6 and even secondary doesn't seem such a daunting task now.

We at St. Michael's have found Sarah's expert advice to be invaluable. She is extremely professional in her approach and the children find her a comforting presence. We have used her feedback to close the gap in attainment in a number of our most vulnerable children and will definitely be calling on her support in the future.

Of all the professionals who called at our door when Harry was little, it was Nicola who made the most difference to our son's life.

- N.P. , Abingdon

For [our son, Polly's therapy] has been very helpful - relaxing but fun, and I think his confidence has grown because of it. For me it has been of great benefit in dealing with him. The service in general has been flexible, highly reliable and punctual. I also am secure in the knowledge that I can contact you at any time and know I will get a warm, quick response.

- A.W. , Boars Hill

"Molly was so excited every time we drove past Nicola's clinic that she shouted, 'Mum, let's go and see my lady!'"

- A.B. , Headington

We've been extremely happy with the therapy we've received, and our son has really responded to it…[G]iven that the NHS still has us on a waiting list after 9 months, we don't have any regrets about starting private therapy. Moreover, with the NHS, we'd probably only receive therapy once every 2 months or so, and I think the regular meetings at the Owl Centre make a big difference. In addition to excellent therapy, the service and running of the Centre are terrific-everyone is always responsive, flexible, and keeps things simple. We're very satisfied clients!

- S.B. , Oxford city

Our child has special needs and his progress is slow. But Nicola keeps his sessions lively and fun and leaves Arun rigid with excitement. She always listens to us and explains the next steps for our son in a way in which we can understand and achieve them.

"Polly is magic."

- JL(aged 6 years) , Oxfordshire

Polly's expertise has made the whole process of sorting out our son's stammer so much easier. Polly has such a wonderful rapport with children, making them feel instantly at ease. Polly has been with us every step of the way, we could not have done it without her. I would definitely recommend the Lidcombe programme and was delighted our son made such rapid progress. Worth every penny.

- JL's mother , Oxfordshire

I initially contacted 12 therapists...and following initial assessment meetings we narrowed the process down to three players. The Owl Centre seemed best placed to help us...Nicola was great... she seemed to get the balance right between being tough on saying the words correctly and being sensitive enough to keep the session positive...For [our son], Nicola was his number 1 choice too which I guess is a great start!

- T.M. , Witney

We are very happy with [our son's] speech therapy. Mary is doing a wonderful job. [Our son] can be reluctant and Mary has shown patience and can normally coax [him] round. She makes the sessions fun with lots of games for [him] to interact with, and consequently his speech is becoming much clearer.

- S.K. , Garsington

We are delighted with our relationship with Nicola/The Owl Centre...[T]he main difference between NHS and private therapy is accessibility, frequency, reliability, communication and understanding... [W]e believe that [private therapy] has been worth every penny. [Our son] has undoubtedly benefited directly from Nicola's therapy/intervention but also indirectly because it has improved our understanding as parents and the strategies we employ at home. Likewise, school has also been involved so we are all working together...I would without hesitation recommend Nicola/The Owl Centre...
