Member since: 17/10/2013

I am a highly experienced Speech and Language Therapist specialising in neurological rehabilitation.

I see adults with communication and swallowing difficulties, as a result of a variety of conditions such as head injury, stroke, brain tumours and progressive neurological conditions.

I provide detailed assessment, therapy, advice and support to individuals, families and professionals.

Therapy is tailored to an individual’s functional goals, which are based on assessment and established prior to commencing therapy. I am passionate about supporting people to explore and identify goals that are the most important and meaningful to them.

Therapy can take place within a person’s own home or in a functional setting.

Initially I offer a free telephone consultation (up to 15 minutes duration).
