Brett Higginson - Ad Prof Dip PC, MBACP - registered member
My name is Brett Higginson Ad Prof Dip PC and I'm a registered member of the BACP. I am a fully qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor. I am an ethical practitioner who is able to offer an integrative approach that brings together different elements of specific therapies, as I believe that there is no single approach that can treat each client in all situations.
In my practices at Three Bridges and in Handcross (fountain therapies), I offer a warm, safe and confidential environment where I can work with individuals and couples over a short or long period of time to help them bring about effective change and enhance their well-being.
Along with my private clients, I have worked with adolescents facing mental health issues and I currently work as a volunteer counsellor at the Olive Tree in Crawley, helping those with cancer-related issues and their families.
I have experienced working with a wide range of issues including anger management, relationship problems, bereavement, loss, sexual issues, depression, stress and anxiety. I'm also a qualified hypnotherapist.
I offer a safe, confidential, discreet and professional service, please contact me if you wish to discuss your issues and the possibility of working together.
GETTING STARTED- call or email me to set up initial session, where we can discuss what’s troubling you, what you want out of the sessions, how to proceed etc and I’m happy to answer any questions you may have. If you’re happy to continue we’ll set up a second session and arrange further fortnightly/weekly sessions. Taking the first step is always the hardest, allow me to help and guide you through the process.

Counselling can provide you with a greater degree of self awareness, understanding of yourself and others. It can also help to improve self esteem, confidence and overcome anxieties.
At various stages of our lives, we can feel overwhelmed, stressed and anxious, throughout the counselling process, I support and guide my clients towards achieving their goals and equip them with greater mental and emotional skills so that they can see themselves, others and life with more clarity and empower them to overcome any obstacles they may be facing.
