I wish to take this opportunity to express my appreciation for the valuable service provided by Ellen Nijhof following a brain injury I received. Over several months Ellen was always professional in her approach and involved me in setting the goals required. She consistently supported me to achieve those goals and to develop strategies that would not only assist me to be better able to carry out activities of daily living but also would be a major factor when I returned to my nursing career. Ellen’s skills and knowledge were always apparent and I valued her input. Her ‘can do’ attitude and her belief in my recovery assisted me through periods of frustration which are associated with head injury. I would have no hesitation in recommending Ellen to anyone who requires the assistance of a Speech Language Therapist.
