I have been a practising Speech and Language Therapist since graduating from Manchester University in 2002.  I have worked in a variety of settings including clinics, primary and secondary mainstream and special needs schools, as well as in the community, with both children and adults.  I also have a post-basic dysphagia qualification, to be able to support those with eating drinking and swallowing difficulties. 

I am a member of the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists (RCSLT) and the Association of Speech and Language Therapists in Independent Practise (ASLTIP).

I have been combining working independently with being employed by the NHS and other organisations since 2006.  I currently work part time for the NHS at Manchester Children's Hospital, whilst also raising my own family.

My special interests include: 

  • Speech sound difficulties

  • Early language delay

  • Articulation difficulties e.g. lisp 

  • Learning disabilities

  • Dysphagia (eating drinking and swallowing difficulties).
