Where do you see people?

I offer a home visiting service and see most of my patients in the comfort of their own home. This helps you to relax in order to get the most from your therapy. I can also see people in care homes, on hospital wards, in hospices or in day centres.

What conditions do you treat?

I treat people with a wide range of conditions, including Motor Neurone Disease, Parkinson's Disease and Parkinson's Plus conditions, Dementia, Primary Progressive Aphasia, Multiple Sclerosis, Stroke, Traumatic Brain Injury, Brain tumour, Myasthenia Gravis and many more.

How much therapy do I need?

This varies from person to person depending on your medical  diagnosis and your Speech and Language diagnosis. I will always talk to you about my recommendations for therapy and it will be your choice whether or not to go ahead. We will have ongoing discussions about your progress throughout treatment.

How much does a session cost?

This depends on whether the session is for assessment or therapy, whether a written report is needed, and the travelling time and distance.  I will always inform you of the initial session cost prior to visiting you, and ensure you are aware of ongoing fees.
