About Me

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 have gained a diploma in Human Givens psychotherapy and am working towards accreditation as a psychotherapist. 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 by your communication difficulties, and how you might use your own resources to ensure these needs are met.

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 in adults:- acquired speech/language/communication difficulties; auditory processing difficulties; stammering/stuttering in adults; general confidence and presentation difficulties. I am a provider of Johansen Individualised Auditory Stimulation.

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.

We had gone out the previous night for a friend’s 21st birthday party, and I decided to stay on their sofa like I had done so many times before. I woke up to the sound of my friends chatting in the kitchen. I didn’t feel like anything was wrong. I eventually got up and started walking around. My friends asked me if I was okay. I tried to respond but couldn’t....
