Joanna Holmes BSc (Hons) MSc CertMRCSLT HCPCReg 

I am a Speech and Language Therapist with 14 years of clinical experience. 

During my career I have worked with children with a range of communication needs in community clinics, special schools and mainstream schools. I also have extensive postgraduate training and experience working with children and adults who stammer.

I have chosen to work in independent practice  since being made redundant from the NHS in May 2015. This work allows me the flexibility to work from home and allows me to care for my daughter who has developmental disabilities. While I work privately I remain absolutley passionate about the NHS and about good quality Speech and Language Therapy being available through healthcare and education. I will always support potential clients to access services within publicly finded settings if that's what they choose. As a parent however I also know that accessing private support can mean personal choice and a timely service.

I believe that therapy should be tailored to each individual and their needs and that working in partnership with clients, children, families and other services is crucial.

I am based in Liversedge West Yorkshire.
