Speech and Language Therapist

Qualifications and experience

I am a fully qualified Speech and Language Therapist and I am extremely passionate about the field of Communication, Language, Voice and Swallowing Disorders. I am currently completing my MSc in Speech, Language and Communication – Advanced Practice at City, University of London.
I work in a private clinic and with the NHS alongside my private practice, and I offer private consultancy services to schools around West and Central London.
I also studied singing and my passion in treating voice disorders stems from that.
