ABOUT US

Speech Therapy Bedford is run by Alice Gainsford.

Alice qualified as a speech and language therapist in 2008 and has been working independently since 2013.  She is a member of the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists, the Health Professions Council and the Association of Speech and Langauge Therapists in Independent Practice. She holds an enhanced DBS certificate.

"As a mother I understand the challenges involved in bringing up a family and I can empathise with parents who are worried about their children, I believe that therapy should be as enjoyable as possible because children make the best progress when they are having fun.  I am dedicated to the children I work with and tailor each session to meet their individual needs."

In line with professional standards, Alice keeps up to date with theory and research and attends regular courses and workshops.  See the News section for more information.

Contact Alice for an informal conversation about your child, or to arrange an initial assessment.  These usually take place at home or at the child's educational setting.  We can then make a plan about the best way forward.
