Caroline is passionate about Speech and Language Therapy and is keen to continue her professional development. Caroline enjoys building positive relationships with her clients and motivating them to achieve their goals.


Caroline graduated from Newcastle University in 2012 after developing an interest in speech, language and communication needs as a teenager. She has worked for the NHS in County Durham and Darlington as a member of the Special Needs team. This involved assessing children for autism and providing therapy for those with additional needs. Caroline subsequently worked for the Regional Cleft Lip and Palate Service in Newcastle and has developed a specialism in this area. Caroline is confident when assessing resonance and providing therapy for disordered speech. Caroline currently works part time for the Cleft Lip and Palate Service, Paediatric Speech and Language Therapy in Newcastle and for ITS. Caroline is also studying for a post graduate certificate in Cleft Palate Studies at Sheffield University.
