Professional profile

I am a specialist speech and language therapist offering private, tailored speech and language therapy and assessment to meet the needs of her clients. I received my training at University College London, a university for speech sciences; for which I was awarded the final year clinical prize. I have advanced through my specialisms and currently works closely with referring consultants at the Spire Wellesley Hospital and within the NHS. Within the NHS, I specialise in head and neck cancer and ENT working with patients for voice, swallowing and communication disorders.

I am experienced in the treatment of speech, language and swallowing disorder as a result of general medical and neurological (stroke/progressive) conditions. I have recently left the NHS to work as an adviser to clinicians nationwide on surgical voice restoration in head and neck cancer. I still maintain my clinical practice in the NHS by working as an Honorary Speech Language Therapist within the Head and Neck team at St. George's Hospital in London. As an additional interest, I also specialise in the treatment of children's speech sound disorders/delays. I Offer an energetic and engaging therapy service for children and encourages parent training in therapy to make quick gains outside of the therapy session.

I am a published author of auditory Bombardment Stories for children and am a highly motivated, skilled and dynamic therapist.

I am available for appointments on Monday mornings/early afternoons. Referrals must be via a Consultant referral for voice/swallowing difficulties. Self referral is accepted for all other areas of Speech & Language Therapy.
