Some comments from previous clients.....

My Son Luca started to see Lynne when he started Pre-school and has seen her on a regular basis for the last two years. We had noticed people found it hard to understand him and we thought at first he was just lazy with his speech.


We were pleased that on our first session with Lynne she diagnosed a Phonological Disorder and Dysfluency.  I was very pleased that Lynne would be able to offer help with all of Luca’s speech issues and we wouldn’t have to find another speech therapist who specialist in just one area as most seem to do.


We agreed to concentrate on the Phonological Disorder first and then when this therapy was established built in Dysfluency treatment. Lynne uses fun, age-appropriate activities to engage my son and not only work on his articulation, but build up the underlying skills needed for speech.


Lynne also quickly grasped an in depth knowledge of Luca’s character and personality and used this knowledge in her sessions. Luca related really well and loved going to see her, Luca was very receptive and enjoyed her sessions. The change in his speech has been wonderful.

We (myself, my husband and family) have all noticed the improvement in my son's speech and use of language. We are all amazed at the rate he has improved and will be forever grateful to Lynne for the help and support she has given to us in order to correct Luca’s speech issues and to be a confident child.

I  worked alongside Lynne in Bury for 7 years. Lynne has always been passionate about her work and genuinely cares about the children and families she works with. 

Lynne is a highly competent therapist with a wide and varied knowledge base in children presenting with speech, language and communication difficulties.

During recent years Lynne and I developed a specialist service for children who stammer. Lynne is trained in delivering a wide range of  evidence based interventions for both children and young adults who stammer. I would not hesitate to recommend Lynne if Parents/ Carers were looking for an independent Speech and Language Therapist.

To Lynne,


Thank you so much for all your hard work with Charlie and support for him and us all.  Your caring nature and high professional skills have helped Charlie develop over the last couple of years, not only in his speech, but also in his confidence communicating.  I know Charlie will, and ourselves will miss your weekly sessions. Thanks again, Charlie and family.

Dearest Lynne, 


Just a small gift to say a big thank you for all your invaluable sessions that you have given us.  We have found them very well structured and practical and extremely beneficial.  We wish you every success on your move to Yorkshire.  Our loss is their gain!  Thanks so much, Daniel and Miryam.
