  "Helping children to reach their full potential through personal and individually lead therapy sessions."
A wealth of experience in communication
I’m Ruth and I live on the border between Devon and Cornwall. I have a young family and we enjoy spending time on the beautiful beaches in our area.

I have worked in the field of communication for over 20 years. After leaving college I had the opportunity to work with adults who have physical and learning disabilities, mental health problems, and/or behaviour difficulties. This experience gave me a valuable insight into living with a communication difficulty. My early experiences of finding a way to communicate with people who really struggled to get their message across inspired me to become a speech and language therapist. Following on from this, I have worked in a range of settings focusing on children’s communication, including mainstream schools and special schools. I find working with children and their families thoroughly rewarding. Having a young family has helped me to understand the needs of the parents and the pressures of family life. This means I am realistic in my advice and expectations.

Early intervention is crucial (Department for Education, 2010, Gascoigne MT (ed). (2012) Better Communication Project). The current financial climate of NHS Speech and Language Therapy Services is often unable to respond quickly, due to the demands of large caseloads. I offer quality speech and language therapy services in a way that benefits the individual child and the needs of their family. I use therapy techniques that are evidence based and I use a solution-focused approach.

Hello! I'm Andrea and I live in Plymouth with my husband and two children. I have lived in the South West all my life and love spending time doing water sports at the beach and walking on the moors.


I have worked with children for approximately 10 years.  I was first inspired to become a Speech and Language Therapist after one of my sons was diagnosed with a communication difficulty.  I have worked in mainstream and additional needs schools supporting children with a range of speech, language and communication difficulties.  Before becoming a Speech and Language Therapist I worked as an Early Years Practitioner supporting and monitoring the overall development of 2-4 year old children in a Pre-school setting.

Over 1 million children (2-3 children per class) have a speech, language or communication difficulty.  Communication underpins everything we do and helps us to live life to the full (Communication Trust, 2018).  I believe that early intervention and support for children with speech, language and communication difficulties and their families is vital to ensure positive outcomes.

I am looking forward to working alongside Ruth as an independent speech and language therapist as her private practice grows. Having worked with Ruth on a separate project for almost two years now I am excited about sharing our knowledge and clinical experiences and undertaking new and inspiring training courses.
