I have been working with Robena for the past 6 months for my voice and speech therapy after my head injury. I also had an endoscopy where it was discovered that I had a lesion on my vocal cord through incorrect vocal use, after 6 months of Speech and language therapy with Robena it reduced a considerable amount!

I am really pleased with the improvements that I have made. Robena is a friendly, enthusiastic lady who gives you confidence to achieve your speech and language goals.

I had speech therapy with Robena after my brain injury in 2010 which left my speech and swallowing badly affected. At first it took me a long time to make only small improvements but then I seen Robena and we worked on my speech and swallowing intensely and I made big improvements such as controlling my speech.

I am so happy with the improvements I have made and I'm really grateful for Robena's support. Thank you loads Robena.

After suffering a head injury during a hockey match, I needed acute speech therapy to help me get back on track.

My wife searched the website as recommended by the NHS and found Robena who specialised in my type of injury and was located near to my home.

Robena has now visited me on 4 occasions and I have made significant progress in a short period of time.

She is very professional throughout the sessions giving help, support and encouragement. The voice exercises have been reviewed weekly which have been tailored around my needs.

Would highly recommend Robena.

Robena was able to establish a very positive and effective relationship with our client, adopting a client centred, problem solving approach, and has been flexible with arranging her time to accommodate changing needs. Her work was instrumental in paving the way forward for our client’s engagement with rehabilitation.

Robena’s communication skills are excellent; she provides regular verbal and written feedback, to the client as well as the team of professionals involved. Reports are clear, thorough, and informative.     

I would have no hesitation in recommending Robena.

I have known Robena for a long time. We met when I had a stroke and needed a speech therapist. The help I received I still use today (some 8 years later) as it is still relevant: the breathing techniques and sound exercises to name two examples. Very quickly, Robena became a good friend and a bright smiling face during what were very dark days. She is helpful and reliable, a very honest person who I am proud to call a friend.
