Philosophy

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.

About

Hi, I'm Rachel.

I'm a specialist speech and language therapist. I have worked across hospital and community services, including a specialist neurorehabilitation unit, 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.  

I also provide training packages, such as to groups vulnerable to developing voice disorders, as I believe this is important preventative work. 

In the coming months I will begin to offer more services to support and empower people with communication and swallowing difficulties. 

Please contact me if you have any queries.
