Prior to establishing her private practice, Dr Liddy Carver was a Senior Lecturer/Programme Leader in Counselling in Higher Education. Her therapeutic experience over the past seven years includes work in a university counselling service, national and independent, not for profit organisations and an occupational health department of a city hospital.
With her wide-ranging knowledge of how the mind and body respond to traumatic events and the recommended current treatments, she has a special interest in working with adults who are experiencing post-traumatic stress and dissociation. This combination of skill set and expertise gives her the edge when helping people with complex needs from all walks of life.

She is bound by the BACP’s Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions and keeps up to date with developments and ongoing research in the profession. Her focus as a person-centred counsellor is on providing a safe, professional and high-quality confidential talking therapy service for adults who may struggle with a variety of distressing issues. The counselling she offers considers a client’s whole way of being, looking at ways people see themselves and how they relate to others. Such self-knowledge can lead to a deeper sense of meaning in life and self-acceptance.
In her own words…
“I know that it is hard to tell someone about memories or present events that are troubling, but my commitment is to provide a safe and confidential environment where you are not hurried or judged. I will help you explore your feelings and thoughts towards your experiences and help you achieve the long-term goals you want. I value honesty, openness and courage which I believe enables people to live authentically.”
