Faye Godsell- Owner Manager

I’m Faye Godsell, Speech and Language Therapist and Owner of Sligo Speech Therapy.

I graduated with a BSc in Speech and Language Pathology, from Queen Margaret’s University, Edinburgh, in 2003. Since then I have been working with children, of all ages, who present with a wide variety of speech, language and social difficulties. I began my career providing supports to teachers and SNA’s in schools for children with a diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Disorder. The sea and the mountains drew me back to Sligo where I began work for the HSE Early Intervention Team, playing a key role in establishing this team alongside my esteemed colleagues. My role as a Senior Speech Therapist, enabled me to provide assessment, therapy and parent training to many families over the years.

On the journey for a more balanced life for myself and my family, I set up my private practice in 2011 and feel so blessed to now work in this role, supporting children and their families, in a space where we can work at a pace that is needed for each individual. I have a particular passion for taking the time to listen to parents describe their journeys, needs and concerns in relation to their children’s wellbeing and communication. In doing so, I can provide a tailored approach for all, and can support parents to become confident in developing their children’s communication skills in the context of everyday family life.

My love of my job, training and experience over the years lead me in the direction of working with all children, particularly those with speech and/or language delays, intellectual disabilities, attention and social difficulties and those that are on the Autism Spectrum.

I have been part of an Autistic Spectrum Diagnostic Team throughout my career and am delighted to continue that role in private practice.

I am a full member of CORU, the Irish Association of Speech and Language Therapists (IASLT), the current chairperson of the Independent Speech and Language Therapists of Ireland (ISTI) and most importantly, a mummy of two young boys.
