I was born and raised in the beautiful Western Cape. The people and children of Cape Town have always been my passion, ever since I can remember.
About Gillian Adonis
I was born and raised in a small town in Johannesburg and would always enjoy the feeling gained from helping others. After matriculating in Johannesburg, I knew speech therapy was the career I wanted to follow, as I previously saw great outcomes from friends that had made use of the service. I went on to complete my degree at stellenbosch University and became the passionate, loving and determined speech therapist that I am today.
Having completed my community service year at a hospital in Soweto, I came to realize what a great need there is for speech therapy across all populations. The need to ensure that every person has optimal communication and feeding skills in order to have the best quality of life.
I feel proud to be part of this profession and will always strive to ensure that each client receives the best service possible.
I graduated from the University of Cape Town in 2018 as a Speech and Language Therapist, and completed my community service in Vosloorus, Johannesburg.
I have always had a passion for helping others, which led me to study this very special degree. I thoroughly enjoy working with the adult neuro population, with a special interest in acquired communication disorders and dysphagia. My second area of interest lies within the school-age population, specifically assisting children with literacy, articulation and fluency difficulties.
Whilst studying and during my community service year, I helped children and adults find alternative ways to engage with their family and friends, and rehabilitated a man’s swallow so that he would be able to join his family during meal times. I strive to empower individuals by assisting them in their recovery to achieve their full potential.
I am very satisfied with the results my son has shown. We have been bringing Zachariah for a while and am amazed at the progress he has made. One never realises the importance of spoken language until you have a child that is unable to communicate with you.
