Meet The Speechie Spot.
A team of speechies passionate about empowerment through communication.

This is The Speechie Spot. The spot for all people who need a little bit of assistance in how they communicate. Working with people in their primary schooling years all the way through to seniors, we’re experienced speechies with an educated understanding of how brains work.

Seeking speech pathology services can be overwhelming, whether you’re young or a bit older. Learning how to communicate and overcoming these obstacles can be life changing at any age, though. We understand the mixed feelings that come with this kind of therapy and we’re here for you. You’ll notice the difference working with our friendly team.

Our Approach to Communication

Holistic & Overarching

We value taking a holistic approach to therapy. From our allied health services to how we communicate with family members, teachers or colleagues to further support you.


This means a willingness to work with you, to work around your lifestyle, and a willingness to try new things to give you the level of support you need to thrive.


We need to adapt the therapies we use and how we provide them to who you are and how your family or support network runs.

Our Mission

We’re here to empower you through communication. Unleash your potential and transform your life through communication.

Meet Our Speechies Team


Clinical Administration

Monica is the first person you will chat with when you call the clinic or visit us for your appointment. She is our friendly Pathways to Expression Administrator and will gladly help you to connect with a speechie here at the clinic. You are welcome to send all your questions her way!

When not at work Monica enjoys catching up with family and friends or relaxing with a good book.


Lead Speech Pathologist

Kerry is our founder and Lead Speechie. She’s been working in the field of language and learning for over 30 years, initially as a teacher (teaching language at all levels of education – kindergarten to mature-age), and then as a speech pathologist.

 Over time she’s realised that people desperately want to communicate and they become tremendously frustrated when, for whatever reason, they are unable to do so with relative ease.

 Sometimes their frustration leads to involuntary silence, sometimes it leads to miscommunications that need to be sorted out. Most of her working life has revolved around assisting people to be able to speak their minds clearly, so that they are understood easily, without fear of sounding silly or being embarrassed about the content of what they are saying or about their mode of delivery. The need to communicate is lifelong. Kerry is just as passionate about the provision of services to youngsters as she is to her centenarian clients.

 When Kerry isn’t at work, she enjoys travelling, bush walking, dancing, learning about other cultures, reading, and hanging out with her friends.

 She looks forward to helping you meet your communicative needs.
