Founder & Director of Tictock Therapy C.I.C
My name is Sarah. I am a mum to 2 children with tics, a 14yo boy and a 10yo boy with a diagnosis of Tourette Syndrome and a cocktail of co-occurring conditions. I have lived first hand with the battles we have to face as a parent, firstly getting a diagnosis and then finding the support that both our children and our family unit require.
Secondly, I am a professional who works in behavioural interventions, my back ground is Autism, an area I have worked in for many years, both in schools and delivering behaviour therapy in clients' homes & clinical settings.
After my son was diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome, I became fascinated by how complex and intricate Tourette's is and how successful behaviour intervention can be for individuals with Tourette Syndrome so swiftly retrained in this area.
Due to the limited services available in and around England for children with Tourette's, I set up Tictock Therapy offering affordable behavioural intervention and support in 2018.
I have been nominated (2020 & 2021) for a National Diversity Award, as a role model in the disability sector.
I was also the winner for excellence in the health care sector in 2020 - PACC
