Elena Holden Bsc (Hons), PgDip Counselling, MBACP (Reg)
Mind And Body
I offer mainly person-centred and CBT therapy; working collaboratively with clients in order to give them greater choice in how they would like to experience counselling. I am an integrative counsellor, which means I am trained in and use a variety of techniques to best suit the client and their individual needs.
I am able to help clients explore their feelings, thoughts and emotions and better understand and manage them. I provide a safe, confidential space for clients to freely express themselves without judgement. I strive to achieve a respectful, equal relationship with clients. I believe a good relationship between client and counsellor and the right fit is vital for effective therapy. I offer an initial meeting with no commitments to allow clients to decide whether they would be happy for us to work together. If you are struggling with any aspect of your life, counselling can help.
I work from a private room in a calm, modern office in Halifax town centre with parking facilities. Hours of work are flexible. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.
