For the task I charged you with - facilitating an anxiety-free build-up to the holiday, journey and arrival - I am pleased to report that I followed instructions to the letter and you scored 100%. If anything, I was a bit too relaxed!!!!
I have known Richard for some time and find him very professional and caring. He is very easy to talk to and will listen to what you have to say when I have to go to see him he is friendly and chatty and just a very nice man doing an excellent job.
I am no longer a smoker. The hypnosis gave me the belief I could control the desire to smoke.
Our elderly mother, who has Parkinsons has benefited greatly from the treatment and practical advice received at home. She looks forward to her treatments(from Meryl) which are professional, friendly and caring . We could not ask for more.
I was referred (by BUPA) to the Wimborne Clinic following a brain haemorrhage. With Meryl Goddard as my physio and Margo Stephens as my speech therapist, my progress has described by my Consultant as ‘remarkable’ and by my GP as ‘brilliant’. Without them I wouldn't be where I am today.

Speech and Language Therapy - Margaret Stephens
What is Speech & Language Therapy?
Margaret is highly skilled in the management of speech and communication problems following stroke and is a member of The British Aphasiology Society. She also has a clinical interest in neuro-degenerative disease particularly Parkinson’s Disease and dementia.
Margaret works with patients on a one-to-one basis at the clinic and will also visit patients at home if they find it difficult to travel to the clinic. She is also able to offer small group therapy such as conversation groups when there are enough people needing this type of therapy input. She is very keen to offer Lee-Silverman Voice Therapy to people with speech difficulties as a result of Parkinson’s Disease. She will also see people for help with stuttering or stammering.
Therapy sessions are relaxed and fun and are designed around the individual's personal goals which may include seeing people in a variety of settings such as coffee shops and visits to the bank etc to work on increasing self-confidence and conversational skills in all environments.
Margaret is a highly skilled clinician in the field of adult neurology. She has worked in the Poole area and in West Dorset for many years in both Acute hospitals and in the community in hospitals, nursing homes and visiting patients in their homes.
She has an interest in Research and is an expert member of an NHS Research Ethics Committee in Southampton which is responsible for giving approval for medical research in a wide range of clinical areas but which is flagged nationally for consideration of studies which include adults who may be unable to consent for themselves. She is also a Professional Reviewer for the UK Stroke Forum for Stroke Training.
