Speech therapy for adults

Assessment | Therapy | Support
Communication is a relatively automatic process that so many of us take for granted. But when communication or the ability to swallow is affected, it can severely impact a person’s sense of identity, relationships and overall quality of life.

As highly qualified and experienced Speech Therapists we have a deep understanding of how communication and swallowing difficulties can impact a person at any life stage – at birth or later in life as the result of a medical condition, injury or aging.

We are dedicated to providing our clients, their families and carers with professional care and personalised support to overcome, ease and manage these challenges and assist our clients to experience tangible improvements to their quality of life.

Our services also include group therapy and social groups to build social communication skills in a safe, nurturing (and fun) shared setting.
