Adult Acquired Speech and Language Therapy

My name is Louise Kellett and I am the Principle Speech and Language Therapist at Total Speech Therapy.  

I am based in the North East of England where I live and work.  I have over 20 years experience of working with acquired speech, language, voice and swallowing disorders in the NHS.  I currently work part time in the NHS.  I am extremely passionate about helping people to communicate more effectively and with confidence.  

I am a long standing member of the: 

Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists (RCSLT); 


Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC)

Association of Speech and Language Therapists in Independent Practice (ASLTIP).  

And I have full enhanced DBS clearance. 


Expert Therapy

I use a range of assessments, both formal and informal, to help us to build a suitable therapy plan together.  I am very client centred in my approaches and use evidence based practice wherever possible. 

The words 'total communication' are a strong focus of my communication therapy, hence 'Total Speech Therapy'. I have extensive experience of working with aphasia,  dysarthria, speech dyspraxia, voice disorders, and dysphagia.   

Additionally I have experience with respiratory disorders and their impact on communication, throat irritation and swallowing. 

What if I want more information?


I offer a free telephone consultation in the first instance to discuss what you require.  You will be able to ask any questions and we can discuss if I can provide a service that suits you.  Prices will be set out during this contact.  An initial assessment visit can then be arranged, at your convenience.  Once an assessment has taken place, a quote with terms and conditions will be provided.
