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 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.
