I hope these Q and As help you to get a picture of what to expect from private speech and language/ psychotherapy. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any other enquiries.



Paying for Speech and Language Therapy is a big commitment, especially if you/your family member needs many sessions over a long period. Sometimes we can address your needs in a few sessions, depending on your difficulties. 

Each Speech and Language Therapy programme is specifically designed to suit the individual. This takes many hours of planning and preparation of therapy materials. Payment for preparation time and materials is built into the fee.

In Counselling/Psychotherapy we take one session at a time, according to your needs: my aim will be to help you see a way forward as quickly as possible, in as few sessions as possible. Sessions are usually 60-90 minutes. 

Please get in touch to discuss fees and explore how I can help you. 

Otherwise, I accept cash, cheques, or (my preferred method of payment) electronic transfer. Details will be provided when we meet. 

Speech and Language Therapists are trained to assess and treat communication difficulties affecting a wide range of people from newborn to old age.  

SLTs in the UK are required by law to be registered members of the Health and Care Professionals Council (HCPC). You should check whether your SLT is registered.

SLTs can also be registered with the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists (RCSLT), which is the professional body for SLTs in the UK, and the Association of Speech and Language Therapists (ASLTIP), which is the officially recognised body for private SLTs.

Being a member of RCSLT means that a SLT has been awarded a licence to practice following successful completion of a recognised university qualification.  As members, SLTs are committed to developing their clinical skills and expertise through continuing professional development therefore maintaining a high standard of clinical practice.

Client Stories
  • "I have suffered for a long time and struggled to see a way forward until I met with Elizabeth. In my first session I could hardly speak I was feeling that low and lost. Elizabeth guided me back to a safe and comforting space and put little steps in place to help me not get overwhelmed. Elizabeth has been incredible, and I have left every session feeling heard, calm and with a newly formed focus on how to make a difference. I cannot recommend her enough. Hands down the best therapist I have...
