About Me

My name is Sarah-Jane Lewis. I am a specialist Speech and Language Therapist and Facial Therapist living just outside Oxford in Wheatley. I graduated from Newcastle University in 2005 with a 1st class degree honours (BSc Speech and Language Sciences). I worked in the NHS for 12 years, specialising in adults for ten years.

I was a Clinical Lead Therapist at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford, working extensively with a range of communication and swallowing difficulties in adults, with a specialist interest in neurological conditions. 

I was closely involved in the launch of the NHS Oxford Facial Palsy Service, acting as the Facial Therapist for the Region. This stemmed from my background as a Speech & Language Therapist in Neurosciences and a deep interest in working with facial weakness. 

I am passionate about making a positive difference to people's lives. Each client is different and brings new concerns, goals and hopes. I aim to work with each person to empower them to achieve their goals, give them more confidence and improve their quality of life. I have a deep interest in the science behind the difficulties people experience, coupled with a desire to lessen the impact it has had on that person and those around them. 

I am registered with the:

  • Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists (RCSLT), 
  • Association of Speech and Language Therapists in Independent Practice (ASLTIP)
  • Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC)
  • Information Commissioners Office (ICO) as a Data Protection Officer 

All client details will be stored adhering to the Data Protection Act and Health and Care Professions Council.  I have fully enhanced DBS clearance.
