HELEN Croucher

based in hertfordshire

Service Lead for Hertfordshire and Specialist Generalist Speech and Language Therapist

For me, speech and language therapy means enabling people to communicate to their best ability, and to participate in activities as fully as they can. It’s a personal journey, and this means therapy should be tailored to the individual. It should be fun, engaging and creative.  Communication is a complex and challenging skill that impacts upon so much, so providing quality therapy and support is essential.
