Life can be hard – we all encounter stressful and challenging life events such as relationship breakdown, family and work-related problems, illness or bereavement, to name a few. During these often difficult times talking to an experienced, professional therapist can really make a difference.
Asking for help can be difficult and it is important to find the right compassionate, knowledgeable and non-judgemental person for you. That is where Dr Liddy Carver can help. Fully trained, accredited, registered and insured, she offers person-centred counselling and psychotherapy, helping a variety of people to enhance their sense of well-being.
Based in Cheshire, I am a highly qualified person-centred therapist with a PhD in Counselling. As an experienced BACP Registered and Accredited Person-Centred Counsellor and Psychotherapist, I am bound by the Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions and keep up to date with developments in the profession.
My 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. I have a wide-ranging knowledge of how the mind and body respond to traumatic events and a lot of experience working with anxiety and depression.
I have published in Illness, Crisis and Loss, and in 2017 contributed a regular, monthly Research into Practice feature in the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy’s monthly magazine Therapy Today. My previous experience as Managing Editor of Counselling and Psychotherapy Research and as a Senior Lecturer/Programme Leader in Counselling in Higher Education, and my current role as a clinical supervisor for counselling practitioners and students, gives me the edge when helping people with complex needs from all walks of life.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
