MY BACKGROUND

When I was a teenager, my father had a serious head injury and I supported him through his rehabilitation. During this time, I became interested in how brain injury affects behaviour and communication and I decided to set out on a career as a Speech and Language Therapist.

I now have almost 20 years' experience as a Speech and Language Therapist working predominantly with adults with acquired neurological communication, cognitive and/or swallowing difficulties. I have worked in a variety of settings including community, specialist neurological centres and acute hospital settings.

 

ABOUT ME

I am a Qualified Speech and Language Therapist, a Registered Member of The Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists (RCSLT) and a member of the Association of Speech and Language Therapists in Independent Practice (ASLTIP), the officially recognised body for the independent practitioner.  I am registered with the Health Professions Council (HCPC) and I am a Trustee of the Brighton-based charity, Say Aphasia. I am also certified in Lee Silverman Voice Treatment (LSVT).


I specialise in neuro-rehabilitation for people who have acquired difficulties in one or more of the following:

finding the right words

understanding spoken language

reading

producing words accurately

cognitive communication

social communication

writing

swallowing


I am happy to work both with the client and the important people in his/her life in order to help them maximise their communication potential.  


I have a friendly, caring, supportive and positive approach in therapy and I like to work as a team with families and health professionals.
