About Louise Lim, MRCSLT
I am a Specialist Speech and Language Therapist working with adults with communication changes caused by neurological changes.
I have been a Speech Therapist since 2004 when I qualified from University College London.
I have worked in NHS hospitals and outpatient clinics with adults who have had a Stroke, have Parkinson’s or Motor Neurone Disease.
I worked at University College London and the Institute of Neurology for 6 years on a research project about recovering language after a Stroke. Stroke and aphasia are my specialist area.
In addition to offering therapy I lecture speech therapy students at UEA in Stroke and aphasia recovery and help run singing groups for people with Parkinsons and am helping to organise and run the British Aphasiology Society Clinical Symposium to be held at UEA in September 2019.
Initial meeting (40 mins) £25

About therapy with me:
Speech therapy with me is all about you and helping you re-develop your communication in the way that you want, to help overcome your current difficulty with speech and or language.
I like to work together with patients and their families to help them with the things that are important to them.
I try to make sure therapy is creative, interesting and relaxed and I will involve you (and your family if you choose) in deciding what you would like to focus on in therapy.
Therapy sessions can range from repeated practise e.g. saying targeted words or phrases, to a more conversation or counselling-type approach or a practical approach to provide pictures, documents and strategies to support everyday communication.
Some people like to focus on set speech therapy tasks whereas others may wish to talk about how their difficulties with communication are affecting their lives and explore ways in which I can support them. Both of these are very valid and you may like to have a mix of sessions.
The number and timing of sessions are up to you.
I am a member of the Health Care Professions Council and the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists.
