About me

Elizabeth Holt – MSc, PGCert, PDip, MBACP (Accred).

In my practice, I offer confidential, therapeutic sessions to support and empower you to move through challenging emotions and life events, past and present. I work from an integrative approach and structure sessions to tailor-fit the individual that I am working with.

My humanistic training supports my core belief that the therapeutic relationship is one of equality: a kind and compassionate balance within a safe, non-judgemental space where two people meet to cultivate for therapeutic change and growth. A good counsellor is a facilitator for subtle inquiry and possibly self-discovery, and the therapeutic relationship in its essence offers the individual space to engage with themselves fully and move towards a more fulfilled and authentic way of being with support from their therapist.

I am a BACP accredited counsellor, clinical supervisor, mindfulness teacher, and academic. Since becoming a member of the BACP in 2014, I have worked in schools and universities, non-profit organisations, and have been a counselling manager in the private sector (EAP).

I currently work in private practice and lecture at a university in Greater Manchester.  In 2019, I was a supervisor with the BACP as part of a pilot scheme, where I supervised pastoral and safeguarding leads in Further Education (FE) Colleges, and I currently work as a trainer for the BACP delivering supervision training to professionals working within FE colleges.  Alongside my work, I am currently completing a Doctorate in Psychological Trauma.
