About me

Elizabeth Haigh Counselling and Psychotherapy works with children, young people, and adults, offering face to face, online and telephone counselling. As a MBACP Registered Counsellor, I offer individual counselling, and integrated relationship counselling, supporting the whole family system.

I have an integrated and relational approach. I tailor counselling support to meet individual needs, all in a non-judgemental and open way. I offer talking therapy and draw upon additional theory and creative medias. The connection with my clients and the connections within their own relationships is central to my work.

Based in Holmfirth, West Yorkshire, I have a private therapy room, which is a safe and confidential space to offer support.

I have experience of counselling both adults and young people. In addition, over the past ten years, I have worked directly with children and families, highlighting this as a specialist area.

I have offered counselling to children and young people aged 5-24 years, and adults, within a range of therapeutic settings. These include schools, alternative education provision, charities, orphanages and hospitals.

I have delivered counselling for agencies such as Barca Leeds and Huddersfield Women’s Centre. Alongside private practice, I currently work with young people in education settings and through charities (The Marketplace, Leeds), offering counselling and emotional wellbeing support.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
