About me...

My name is Rachael Gale and I am a Speech and Language Therapist in the Dorset area.

I trained as a Nursery Nurse and obtained my NNEB Nursery Nursing Diploma. I worked in an Early Years Unit with children with special educational needs. I enjoyed working with children with speech and language difficulties and found it very rewarding when they made progress.

I completed an access course which allowed me to get to study Human Communiction (Speech and Language Therapy at De Montfort University Leicester. I obtained a 2:1 BSc (Hons) in Speech and Language Therapy. I have worked in the NHS for 10 years; I work in clinics and a pre-school language unit.

I have worked independently for 4 years as well as working in the NHS, my independent work is varied and I work with children from 0-16 years with a variety of difficulties. I work in nurseries, schools and the children’s home environment. For more information please contact me.

Here is a brief overview of services I can offer:

  • Therapy, advice and recommendations
  • Provide programmes for individual children which can also be used as I.E.P targets
  • Run speech and/or language group to suit the needs of the children
  • Training for nurseries and schools

Registered with...

I am a member of the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists (RCSLT) and registered with the Health Professions Council (HPC)



I work with children from birth to sixteen years old. I have specialised within the early years (0-6 years), however, my expertise is vast and I regularly work with older children.

I enjoy working with children who have language and speech disorders and more complex children with additional needs. I am able to offer support for the whole family and am empathetic to the needs of the child.

Number of children...

I am able to offer one to one therapy with an individual child. I am very experienced at running language groups for a group of 6 children, these promote the child's attention and listening skills, social interaction, encouraging general vocabulary and to enhance the child receptive and expressive language.
