As part of our longstanding relationship, we are proud to be dedicating our resources to the NHS at this important time. As a result many of our treatments are currently suspended and we are reviewing all planned procedures and consultations. We are making every effort to talk to impacted patients and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Professional profile

I am a highly-specialist Speech and Language Therapist working in a nationally-respected NHS department as well as in independent practice. I have worked in a number of specialist centres throughout London and Manchester.

My areas of interest are assessment, management and rehabilitation of swallowing difficulties and acquired communication problems, tracheostomy, low-awareness states, and instrumental assessments such as FEES (endoscopic swallow assessment) and Videofluoroscopy (assessment of swallowing via x-ray).

People I work with typically have difficulties due to stroke, brain injury, progressive neurological conditions, cancer, respiratory conditions or are post surgery.

I always ensure my intervention is person specific and wholly relevant. I am open and clear about expected treatment outcomes. I believe a combination of traditional approaches and cutting-edge developments lead to the best possible care. I strive to deliver the best of care to everyone I work with.

Clinical Interests


Special Clinical Interests: Aphasia (acquired language impairment), cognitive communication difficulties, communication difficulties, dysarthria (muscle weakness), dyspraxia (impaired co-ordination), dysphagia (swallowing problems), tracheostomy.
