A Bit About Me
Hello, my name is Rachel Horner and I am a fully qualified speech and language therapist.
I have a degree in Speech and Language Therapy from Newcastle University. I am also registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), and the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists (RCSLT). With 9 and a half years of NHS experience, I have seen first hand the positive impacts that Speech and Language Therapy has on lives of individuals and their families. My experience has been mainly with adults who have had a stroke, and the supporting of their families.
My passion has always been to promote communication, especially that between loved ones. I have experience across a variety of settings in community, acute care, schools and clinics.
Throughout my time in the NHS, I have developed many skills and expertise in communication assessment therapy. It is a privilege to be involved in supporting the development of communication with children.
My aim is to work alongside your family to provide and engaging and individual approach for your child’s communication goals.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with friends and family as well as visiting the coast, whether it’s walking on the beach or swimming in the sea!
