Professional profile

I began working for the NHS as a Speech and Language Therapist in 1990. I became a clinical specialist in voice disorders after completing an internship with the SLT and ENT Department at Queens Medical Centre, Nottingham in 1994. In 2013 I set up my independent practice, working primarily with patients who have voice, speech or swallowing disorders. I have lectured in voice pathology at Leeds Metropolitan University.

I began training in nutritional medicine in 2008 and qualified as a Registered Nutritional Therapist in 2014. I m now working towards an MSc in Personalised Nutrition - a programme which enables a more individualised approach to the nutritional management of patients with chronic disease. Lucy have a special interest in the treatment of reflux-related voice disorders through dietary management.
