We are Passionate About Helping People With Therapy

We are a caring team of Speech-Language Therapists who provide speech therapy Wellington – wide. We enjoy working with children of all ages, as well as occasionally “putting away the toys” to support adults too. Our passion lies in making a significant difference in the community by giving everyone we work with the communication skills to support life in all its fullness.

Introducing Sarah Campbell, MSLT
