Speech and Language Therapy - Adults (Hounslow)

Who we are

We are a team of Speech and Language Therapists with specialist knowledge in acquired neurological conditions, voice disorders and stammering. We work as part of the multi-disciplinary team directly with patients and carers offering a comprehensive range of inpatient and outpatient services (including a limited domiciliary service) for patients with communication and swallowing difficulties. 

Who we see 

We provide specialist assessment and management of patients who are registered with a Hounslow GP and present with communication difficulties such as dysarthria (slurred speech), aphasia (language impairment), apraxia (motor programming impairment), cognitive communication disorder, voice problems, stammering and/or dysphagia (difficulty swallowing). This could result from:

  • Neurological conditions (including Stroke, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, Motor Neurone Disease, Huntington’s, head injury, Dementia)
  • Cancer (including brain tumour, head and neck cancer, oesophageal cancer)
  • Respiratory conditions (including COPD) 
  • Gastroenterological conditions  

What we do  

Where appropriate, we provide goal-led therapy programmes (e.g. direct therapy or communication groups), education, advice and support to family and carers, encouraging self-management. 

We run an Aphasia support group called ‘My Word’ and can refer onto other statutory and voluntary services, for example City Lit, the MNDA support group for carers and Integrated Neurological Services.

What our patients have said about us…
"I am sincerely grateful for the care I have received. ‘Care’ is the right word – I have felt supported and that the advice/therapy was individual and personal. It has helped tremendously. Thank you so much."

"Thank you for helping me with my speech, without your help I am sure I would not have made such progress."

"I’ve learned a lot and feel my voice is so much stronger. I’m so pleased with the result, you’ve helped me a lot, thank you."

" I was given a clear diagnosis and very helpful advice and exercises."

"All the advice I’ve been given was very helpful. Overall, I got an excellent treatment."
"On a scale of 1-10, I would say that when I first came in my voice was a ‘2’ and now I would say it was ‘8.5’. Thank you, I couldn’t have done it without your help."
