About Me

I am Elizabeth McBarnet, an Independent Speech and Language Therapist with 33 years’ experience working with a wide range of speech, language and communication difficulties. I assess speech and language impairments in adults:- acquired speech/language/communication difficulties; Functional Neurological Disorder; stammering/stuttering in adults; general confidence and presentation difficulties.

Using formal and informal techniques, I am trained to diagnose, manage and treat communication difficulties using a combination of teaching and empowering. I encourage carers to be actively involved in the therapy process - nurturing you, so you can nurture yourselves and your families. 

I gained a degree in Speech and Language Pathology from Manchester University (1990). Since then I have worked in a community clinic with a large, paediatric caseload; a neuro-rehabilitation hospital for adults with acquired brain damage, and acute hospital settings with adults with neurological damage. For the last 19 years I have run a successful private speech and language therapy practice whilst raising my three daughters, working extensively with both adults and children. 2020 marked the move to working exclusively in therapy for adults.

I am an accredited Human Givens Therapist and a member of the Human Givens Institute. My therapy approach is strongly directed towards management of emotions such as anxiety and depression. I aim to help you explore how your innate emotional needs have been impacted and how you might use your own resources to ensure these needs are met.

You will be welcomed with compassion and without judgement.

Elizabeth guided me back to a safe and comforting space and put little steps in place to help me not get overwhelmed. Elizabeth has been incredible, and I have left every session feeling heard, calm and with a newly formed focus on how to make a difference. I cannot recommend her enough. Hands down the best therapist I have...
