After qualifying back in the mid ‘80s I worked briefly in Newcastle-upon-Tyne before moving down to Middlesbrough where I joined a team, so many of whom were called ‘Jane’ that I was subsequently landed with the nickname ‘Jessie’ - still persisting umpteen years later! My passionate interest in fluency led to the paediatric Specialist role I now share with my colleague Sarah Phillips, offering Fluency Consultation Clinics and a range of therapy and support including PCI, ACT, SFBT and CBT. I have always been actively involved in our regional North East Dysfluency SIG and am delighted to be able to take up a role on the National Committee.
