Independent Speech and Language Therapist
Founder of Little Orchard Therapies.
I am an independent speech and language therapist providing therapy for adults with acquired conditions.
I have worked as a speech and language therapy manager in neuro-rehabilitation, as a team lead covering acute medicine wards including critical care, and developed a specialist respiratory speech therapy outpatient clinic.
My experience includes working within the NHS, private healthcare, and as an independent practitioner and locum.
I hold the RCSLT Sternberg Award for Clinical Innovation for developing a post-graduate dysphagia training programme.
I am an author of the RCSLT Position Paper on Speech and Language Therapy in Adult Respiratory Care.

Quality of life is key.
We understand the frustrations of communication problems, and not being able to enjoy your meals.
For this reason, our starting point is you and how you wish to improve your quality of life. We take an integrated lifestyle therapies approach.
Of course we manage risks to health but we do this in the context of maximising what it is you value and building this into your everyday life.
We listen to you, and tailor your evidence-based therapy, set individualised goals, find lifestyle and functional approaches that suit you, carefully measure outcomes, and are flexible enough to make changes as you develop.
We work with your family, friends, and multidisciplinary teams to support you. Your needs, wishes and preferences are integral to therapy and lifestyle change.
We also understand that supporting individuals with communication or swallow problems can be challenging. We provide training, supervision and audits to support colleagues and organisations to provide quality service.
