Welcome to Talking Toolbox North West

Welcome to
Talking Toolbox North West

Hello, my name is Laura Coverley and I am the principal speech therapist and owner of Talking Toolbox North West. I graduated from the University of Manchester in 2016 (BSc Hons) and worked in the NHS for seven years before setting up Talking Toolbox alongside my NHS role in 2021. In addition to my NHS work, I now also work out of Pitter Patter Clinic, Windle, St Helens which opened in April 2023.

I have a special interest and passion for supporting children and young people who stammer up to the age of 16. I have completed the following training courses with the Michael Palin Centre for stammering, an internationally recognised centre of excellence:

  • Palin Parent-Child Interaction Therapy for Children Under 7
  • Supporting 8 - 14s
  • Integrating stammering management approaches
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
  • Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)

In 2022 I was involved in the Palin Stammering Therapy for School Children (Palin STSC 8-14) research study.

Our Services

This includes detailed assessment of your child's speech, language and communication...

If your child will benefit from therapy sessions this will be determined following your child's initial assessment...

Online therapy sessions are also available and have been successful for many children receiving therapy input...
