My promise to you
Listening is my most valuable tool.
I ensure every patient's unique concerns are:
heard, understood and reflected in the results of treament.
My name is Rebecca Star and I own and operate Zip In Speech Pathology at Balgowlah, near Manly on the Northern Beaches of Sydney. It is here that I have been practising Speech Therapy for over 20 years and where I have raised my family.
I find a less formal approach works best with my clients. I ensure their confidentiality and comfort so they are then more likely to chat. It is during this relaxed chat that I go to work and diagnose what issues we may need to address.
Mindful that most people lead very busy lives, I try to do this as swiftly as I can. Hence the name Zip In. At Zip In, speech pathology meets absolute convenience. If you really can't spare the time for a consultation, then you may enjoy watching the videos at the bottom of the page. I am passionate about all aspects of speech pathology seen in adults and children.
