About Me

I am Elizabeth McBarnet, an Independent Speech and Language Therapist with 32 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 17 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.

In 2020 I gained a diploma in Human Givens psychotherapy and am working towards accreditation as a Human Givens Therapist. I am a Graduate member of the Human Givens Institute. My therapy approach is strongly directed towards management of emotions, 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.

I can now honestly say I can’t remember the last time I had one, and if one occurs in the future I am confident I will know how to deal with it. My therapist, Elizabeth, created a safe space for me where my needs were met so I could openly share my feelings, free of judgement. Like many others I was anxious about...
