A Bit About Me

Hello, I'm Ellen! I am a Specialist Speech and Language Therapist who graduated from De Montfort University Leicester back in 2017. I am registered with the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists (RCSLT) and the Health and Care Professional Council (HCPC). 

I have developed my knowledge and skills over the last 4 years in the NHS service across North Wales. Over the first 2 years of my career in the NHS I worked with school aged children and specifically with bilingual Welsh-English children who had speech, language and communication difficulties. Most recently, however, I have specialised in working with pre-school aged children (0-5 years) providing effective and evidence based assessment and therapy to children with speech sound, language and social communication difficulties. 

One of my recent projects funded by the Welsh Government has included providing a variety of different training programs to nurseries, schools and Early Years Practitioners across Flintshire. 

 

I am a tutor in the ICan ‘Early Talk Boost’ and ‘Talk Boost KS1’ language interventions as well as Hanen- ‘It Takes two Talk’ and ‘More than Words’. I am also an Elklan 0-3 Tutor, a GroBrain Toddler Facilitator and I'm Makaton level 3 trained. 

I am passionate about providing an holistic approach to therapy which includes the whole child’s support network.

 

When I'm not working, I love having cuddles with my dog, watching marvel films and cooking Indian food with my partner.
