Janet Savva

My name is Janet Savva.  I am a qualified Speech and Language Therapist (SLT) registered with the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists and Health and Care Professions Council.

I qualified with a BSc First Class Honours Degree in Human Communication (speech and language therapy) from De Montfort University in 2006.


My whole career has been spent working for the NHS and I have specialised in working with adults with speech, voice, and swallowing problems. I am currently the Clinical Lead Speech and Language Therapist for Ear Nose and Throat (ENT) at Somerset NHS Foundation Trust.


I started working privately part-time in 2020 when the pandemic began to impact on the availability of NHS services. 


I can offer prompt and intensive online assessment and treatment for clients with voice, swallowing and upper airway (throat) problems. I have a passion for making a positive difference to the lives of my clients with my holistic person-centred approach.

My Qualifications

Since qualifying with a first class honours degree in Human Communication Speech and Language Therapy in 2006 I have completed extensive continued professional development. 


In the field of voice this includes certification in Voicecraft® and Estill Voice Training®, as well as completing additional courses in Resonant Voice Therapy, Vocal Function Exercises, Flow Phonation, Semi Occluded Vocal Tract (SOVT) Therapy and Phonation Resistance Training Exercise (PhoRTE ™) to name a few.  


Furthermore, I am certified in the use of Myofascial Release manual therapy techniques (massage therapy) for neck, voice, and swallowing problems. Additionally in the field of swallowing I have a post-graduate qualification in Dysphagia from the University of St Mark & St John, plus certification in the McNeill Dysphagia Therapy Program (MDTP) and the Modified Barium Swallow Impairment Profile (MBSImP ™).

I have extensively worked with individuals with acute and chronic swallowing problems in the in-patient, rehabilitation, out-patient and nursing home settings. I have also developed and delivered dysphagia management training programmes for carers and nurses working in both hospital and care home environments.
