I am an incredibly driven, experienced, innovative and professional Speech and Language Therapist working as an advanced practitioner at a clinical level. I am HPC and RCSLT registered, having an additional degree in Pathobiology. I have 15 years clinical experience. I have a hunger to empower clients, learn from clients and improve their quality of life by treating them with the most effective treatment plan possible. I specialise in voice, dysfluency (stammering), speech, language and swallowing disorders. My clients include those post stroke, those with neurological conditions i.e. Parkinson’s Disease, head and neck cancers, and occupational voice difficulties (vocal nodules). I have additional skills in counselling, coaching and cognitive behaviour therapy techniques, which complement assessment and treatment of communication and swallowing disorders.
