I am Elizabeth McBarnet, an Independent Speech and Language Therapist with 30 years’ experience working with a wide range of speech, language and communication difficulties. I gained a 2.1 Honours 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 marks the move to working exclusively in therapy for adults, and I look forward to further developing my practice.
I continue to enhance my knowledge through the required Continuing Professional Development as specified by HCPC.
I am HCPC registered, a member of RCSLT and ASLTIP. I assess speech and language impairments; developmental delay; acquired speech/language/communication difficulties in adults; auditory processing difficulties; speech-sound difficulties; general confidence and presentation difficulties. I am a provider of Johansen Individualised Auditory Stimulation and Hanen, More Than Words
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 your families.
