I have over 20 years' extensive experience of treating adults with a wide variety of acquired voice, speech and language disorders in the NHS.
As well as individual therapy I offer training and support for families,carers and teachers. I work closely with family members of those affected by brain injury and am training to be a systemic practitioner.
I take an active interest in current research developments, and coordinate a specialist clinicians' professional development group. I have several years' NHS experience of supervising colleagues and therapy students. I have presented work at the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists Conference. I am passionate about supporting people to find their potential to communicate effectively in day to day life.
