About Us

Speech and Language Therapy London was founded in 2017 by Rachel Lord.  Rachel has worked for over 10 years in both NHS and private settings in the UK and New Zealand.  She has worked with children and adults in a range of settings including clinics, nurseries, mainstream schools, sixth form colleges, hospitals, rehabilitation centres, nursing homes and people’s own homes.  She has led a team at a central London hospital facility and has extensive experience of working with people with communication and swallowing disorders including:

  • aphasia
  • cognitive communication disorder
  • dysarthria
  • dysphagia
  • voice disorders
  • speech sound delay
  • language delay
  • stammering/stuttering
  • selective mutism

She is trained in tracheostomy management and instrumental assessments, i.e. FEES (Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing) and videofluoroscopy.

At Speech and Language Therapy London, we are able to offer assessment, advice and therapy to children and adults with communication and swallowing difficulties.  We work alongside NHS therapists to provide additional support, observations, assessment and direct therapy.

All of our Speech and Language Therapists have enhanced DBS clearance and are members of the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists (RCSLT) and the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).  In addition, our therapists are registered with a number of private health insurers including BUPA , AXA and Aviva.
