Katie Hughes – MSc Speech and Language Therapy
Working in a the field of Speech and Language Therapy both inspires and challenges me. It also ensures a daily dose of fun.
I enjoy getting to know each client; their strengths and challenges as well as what motivates them. Putting together these jigsaw pieces is important as it means that I can formulate bespoke and effective therapy sessions for each client and their families.
I work predominately with a paediatric caseload and provide therapy to clients who have diagnoses such as motor speech disorders, cerebral palsy and Down’s syndrome. I graduated from Queen Margaret University in 2014 with a Postgraduate Diploma and MSc in Speech and Language Therapy before moving to London in 2015.
From an early age I knew that I wanted to work with children in some capacity and following a placement with a speech therapist while in my final year at school I realised what a varied, challenging and, ultimately, rewarding career being a speech therapist could provide.
My experience as a therapist has confirmed my expectations as I have come to realise how no two days are the same and that each child you meet brings something different and a new challenge to every therapy session.
Since graduating from UCL in 2009, I have experienced several working environments, including the NHS, research at the Institute of Education and the University of Strathclyde and now in independent practice.
My first love was with the pre-school age group working in the clinic and nurseries, but I have always had a specialist interest in motor speech disorders. My current caseload includes a range of clients including some with complex needs and specific motor speech disorders.

I contacted Justine about my 2.5 year old after his nursery raised some concerns about his mouth regularly being open and excess dribbling. Justine took the time to thoroughly understand the issue and the flags that nursery had identified as well as a detailed background of my son's life to date. She then provided us with some very useful advice but concluded we wouldn't benefit from treatment at this stage. I really appreciated her friendly and pragmatic communication and felt reassured after speaking with her that I knew how to help my son. I appreciated the time she invested, especially given it didn't result in any specific work for her. Thank you!
Justine is an amazing therapist, my daughter has been lucky enough to see her in London weekly for Prompt therapy for the past 3 years. My daughters speech has improved so much as a result of her seeing Justine every week. I’m so grateful she gets to see Justine and can’t recommend her enough.
I would recommend working with Justine, she is very kind, very patient and has found the perfect way to make my child understand, thank you so much Justine.
You have been a magician for Tristan!
Justine you are an amazing,caring and passionate lady. We can't thank you enough.
Dear Justine, Thank you for being so wonderful and caring for Damien the way you have we really appreciate everything you have done for him.
