I work with a range of  Speech Disorders including: 


Dysarthria - difficulty with slurred speech, volume control and prosody

Language and Communication Disorders

I work with a range of acquired communication disorders, including:

Cognitive Communication Disorder (difficulty using our thinking skills to understand nuance, plan what we want to say, use body language/tone and much more)


I work with clients to unpick how these disorders may be impacting their understanding, speaking, reading, writing and social communication. This is turn leads us to explore what to target to improve communication at home, work and in leisure situations.​
