I have 30 years of clinical experience within the NHS.
My NHS role as clinical and professional lead to a team of speech and language therapists within an acute hospital has provided me with a wealth of knowledge and experience.
My specialist clinical skills are within the area of communication and swallowing disorders secondary to stroke and traumatic brain injuries. I am experienced in working across a wide range of neurological, respiratory and swallowing disorders.
I particularly enjoy working within an adult and elderly care setting and ensuring that my clients’ speech, language and swallowing problems are expertly managed.
My strengths lie in providing excellent, informed, compassionate and effective clinical care.
I can offer expert specialist assessment, management, therapy, support, training and advice across a wide range of communication and swallowing disorders.
Feel free to contact me for advice and to make an appointment.
