Sarah graduated from Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh with an honours degree in Speech and Language Therapy.

She truly enjoys working with children with speech, language, and communication needs (SLCN). Through clinical placements she has gained a great deal of experience working in several clinical areas such as learning disability, genetic conditions, voice. Sarah has worked across mainstream and special schools, community health centres and hospital wards.

Sarah aims to maximise the communication skills of all children in order to assist them in reaching their full potential. She understands the importance of supporting parents/carers to gain an understanding of communication development to providing specialised individual treatment for children with communication difficulties.

She is committed to providing the most effective and evidence-based services in a friendly and motivating environment enabling the client to engage better in therapy.

Sarah works well as part of a team and appreciates the importance of working in partnership with other professionals and their families and with other professions and agencies.

Sarah firmly believes in adopting a person centred approach when setting goals and targets for therapy. She feels this is the best way to ensure the clients have full control over their therapy and are valued.
