Our Services

Swallowing Difficulties

Also known as Dysphagia, swallowing difficulties affect many people. From strokes to degenerative diseases, to throat cancer,  people with dysphagia have problems swallowing certain foods or liquids, while others can’t swallow at all. We will assess the best course of action to help you regain your quality of life

Cognitive-communication Difficulties

Communication is a complex process which involves many aspects of thinking and social skills. If brain injury impairs any of these, it can affect the ability to communicate successfully. ‘Cognitive communication difficulties’ is the term most often used for the resulting problems.

Motor Speech Disorders

One disorder is known as Apraxia, which makes it difficult to plan, programme, control, coordinate and execute speech. Another is Dysarthria which is when speech is slurred. Both of these have a huge impact on quality of life because speech is the main tool we use to engage with our world. 

Language Impairments

Aphasia is a brain-based condition that makes it difficult for someone to express themselves or make sense of what is being said to them. People who have aphasia may struggle to produce language, speak in grammatically correct sentences or translate thoughts into speech.

When my mother’s overall health and swallowing ability took a dip, Alice was recommended to assess her eating and drinking.
Alice listened to my mum, the home care manager, and me and explained exactly what she was doing and why she was doing it. Not only was it informative, but it also allowed us to follow the process.
Alice gave us a proper plan going forward for Mum’s wellbeing. Because of her detailed report, a diagnosis of vascular dementia was established. I recommend Alice 100% to anyone who is in a similar position as we were.

Gill Timms - St Margaret's Bay, Kent

Alice started where I was and guided me in the right direction. She gave me the confidence to keep going. The work we do puts me in a better position to get my cognition and my memory on track the best we can. Making the brain tick! Getting those neurons working!
Alice knows exactly what to do to get someone on track. Treatment is helping me get where I need to be. Alice is kind and gentle. She encourages me to do my best, be myself, and always has my best interests at heart. She is honest, loyal, and professional.

Victoria Isaacs - Ashford, Kent

Working with Alice Treharne was enormously helpful. The fact that Alice talked to me and listened. She waited for me to say what I wanted and if it didn’t come out, she helped me with it.
I think on my own – if I hadn’t had Alice – I would have been at home, alone, watching television. It was easier than being with other people.
When I talk to people who haven’t seen me for awhile, they say that I am better in myself. My speech is much better than it was.I am lucky that I had Alice.
