About me

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.
