Often people with communication and swallowing difficulties can be 'written-off' early in their recovery journey. If they were given time and support, then improvements can be gained.
The logo for Speech Therapy Lincs Ltd includes a tree to represent this continued growth. Some branches may wither, yet new ones can grow. The tree inside the head represents the continued growth for the individual with communication and/or swallowing difficulties.
The tree extends out of the head to represent how this 'new growth' also involves others, such as family members and friends. Your family and friends are encouraged to participate in your therapy journey.
Hi, I'm Rachel.
I'm a specialist speech and language therapist. I have worked across hospital and community services, including specialist neurorehabilitation units, stroke units and in people's own homes.
I work with people with communication and swallowing difficulties from a range of conditions including stroke, brain injury, brain cancer, Parkinson's disease, Multiples Sclerosis and dementia.
I have set up Speech Therapy Lincs Ltd so I can provide high-quality, person-centred care for people with communication and swallowing difficulties. I am based in Lincoln and will travel across Lincolnshire and east Nottinghamshire.
In 2020, I have delivered lectures on communication and swallowing disorders to nursing and therapy students at the University of Nottingham and the University of Lincoln.
In addition to working independently, I work in the NHS on a specialist neurorehabilitation unit for individuals with brain injuries. Due to the current situation with Covid-19, I have chosen to increase my hours working at my NHS job. This means that I will take longer to respond to enquiries and it is better to contact me by email.

I have attended the following courses recently:
